Grant Reports & Scholarship Updates
Organizations receiving a grant in the amount of $10,000 or more are asked to submit a grant report or scholarship update detailing activities supported by the foundation during the grant year. For grantee organizations participating in the College and Career Access, Persistence and Success (CCAPS) Common Reporting Framework, please adhere to the 2022 calendar year reporting and checklist deadlines.
The grant report is a requirement for 2022 calendar year funding and does not serve as a renewal request. Reporting expectations are noted in your organization’s year end award pledge notification letter (mailed in December 2021) and grant payment letter (mailed in March, June or September 2022). They are also outlined below. Failure to submit the grant report or scholarship update on time may affect your organization’s eligibility for future funding. If you are unsure about reporting requirements for your organization or if you have additional questions, please contact us.
New, Renewing, and Multi-Year Grantees
A grant report is requested annually for all organizations receiving a grant of $10,000 or more except those organizations receiving a scholarship grant (see next section) or for organizations participating in the College and Career Access, Persistence and Success (CCAPS) Common Reporting Framework.
*New this year: Include a budget versus actuals summary for the most recently completed fiscal year for your organization when submitting the grant report.
Please send grant reports to the Foundation’s general inbox by December 2, 2022. The Grant Report Form is a fillable PDF. You can download the PDF, open in Adobe Acrobat Reader, then type in and save your responses. A confirmation message will be sent upon review of your organization’s submission. Due to the volume of submissions, confirmation from staff may take 5 business days following receipt.
Scholarship grant recipients need not submit a grant report form. The foundation requests a short (1-2 paragraphs) update with information about the scholarship recipient(s) and any changes to your scholarship program.
Please send scholarship updates to the Foundation’s general inbox by December 2, 2022.
The foundation does not require a yearly proposal for renewed funding. Grantee partners currently receiving a one-year grant from the foundation are automatically considered for renewed support by the board of directors in the fall, unless your organization’s 2021 year end award notification letter states other grant commitment terms. Multi-year grantees should refer to their most recent award letter for clarification on their funding cycle. Your organization will be notified if and when a proposal should be submitted.
