General information about reporting and acknowledgement of a grant is below. Please note that our strategic open grant programmes have specific reporting requirements, details of which will be available on the relevant pages under Grant Programmes.

Reporting for grant holders

For general grants (not those made under our strategic open programmes), the Foundation requires an annual report on the progress of funded projects, allowing Trustees to ascertain the impact and benefit of their support. Please download the template from our Publications & resources page.

Grant holders may use case-studies to demonstrate success, as well as quantitative measures as a means of reporting. Examples of useful measures are: attendance of events, participation of disadvantaged groups, completion rates of course participants etc.

We may visit your organisation during the lifetime of the grant to view first-hand how our funding is making a difference to your work.

If any issues arise, or there is a change to how you wish to spend grant funds, please let us know. We understand that sometimes plans need to be adapted and lessons learnt as part of a project.
