Grant Reports & Scholarship Updates
Organizations receiving a grant in the amount of $3,000 or more must 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 2021 calendar year reporting and checklist deadlines.
The grant report is a requirement for current year funding and does not serve as a renewal request. Reporting expectations are noted in your organization’s year end award notification letter (mailed in December 2020) and are 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 required annually for all organizations receiving a grant of $3,000 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.
Grant reports are due by December 3, 2021. 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 3-5 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. Updates may be sent via email and are expected by December 3, 2021.
The foundation does not require a yearly proposal for renewed funding. Grantees 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 2020 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.
