Grant Reports & Scholarship Updates

2019 Requirements

Unless otherwise indicated, organizations receiving a grant in the amount of $2,500 or more must submit a grant report or scholarship update detailing activities supported by the foundation during the grant year. 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 award letter (mailed in December 2018) and are outlined below. Failure to submit this report on time may affect your organization’s eligibility for future funding.

Grant Renewals

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 2018 award 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.

New, Renewing, and Multi-Year Grantees

A grant report is required annually for all organizations receiving a grant of $2,500 or more except those organizations receiving a scholarship grant (see next section). Grant reports are due by December 16, 2019.

For grantee organizations participating in the College and Career Access, Persistence and Success (CCAPS) Common Reporting Framework please adhere to the 2019 calendar year reporting and checklist deadlines.

Scholarship Grantees

Scholarship grant recipients need not submit a grant report form. The foundation requests a short (1-2 paragraphs) update at the end of the school year 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 16, 2019.

If you are unsure whether your organization is required to submit a grant report form or if you have additional questions, please contact us.
