The foundation only requires organizations receiving multi-year grants to submit an interim report. No final reports are required. See Multi-year grants information below.

For one-time grants, the foundation does not required reports. We usually suggest organizations that re-apply for a grant to use a new application to describe how the last grant was helpful to the organization.

Multi-Year Grants

The foundation requires organizations receiving multi-year grants to submit an online interim report. The interim reports should include:

  1. brief progress report
  2. current program and organizational budget
  3. financial statement
  4. list of all funding sources

Log in to submit report.

The payment of future installments of the grant are contingent upon the Board’s assessment of the interim report. Reports are due:

  • No later than March 1, for grants received in April (winter).
  • No later than June 1, for grants received in July (spring).
  • No later than November 1, for grants received in December (fall).

Time Off for One-Time Grants and Multi-Year Grants

The foundation requests organizations that have received either multi-year grants or one-time grants for three consecutive years to take a year or two off before reapplying for support.
