Yes. I wrote a draft grant back in March and I will not submit the final grant until we have decided on the design. The FFF will MAYBE match half of what we’ve raised (contrary to a rumor that they already stated they were committed to doubling our fundraising effort) so the more we raise ourselves, the more funding from them that might be available.
“Promises” or “unnamed potential investors” don’t count towards cash raised. Only money in the bank will be counted. So far that’s around $12,000
