Full transparency, I’m not from a fenceline community.
That said, I’ve been working with a funding group on a passion project. What I appreciate about this partnership, in addition to the funding is that they provide some additional structure and partnership – beyond just the financials. I have experience and expertise in my fields, and money management and administrative paperwork was not part of my training. Getting support on the parts that are more technical is helpful and appreciated.
I really cannot imagine getting through the admin pieces without extra support.
