Because of our commitment to make one grant per cause and our overly rigid and narrow definitions of "causes," we feel that we allocated our grant money suboptimally..... We plan to research fewer, broader causes in the future, giving ourselves more flexibility to grant the organizations that appeal to us most.... In our first year, we focused our time and effort overwhelmingly on getting information from applicants, as opposed to from academic and other independent literature. Applicants found this process extremely time-intensive and burdensome, particularly given the size of the grants.... We are modifying our research process.... In an attempt to increase our research capacity, we hired our strongest volunteer in January, but terminated the relationship at the end of May. We have mutually agreed that, at this stage of our development, we can't provide the training and management necessary for someone of his skill set to add significant value.
