Follow-up Reports

Nonprofit agencies who receive grant funding, including grant distirbutions (from donor advised, designated, or agency endowment funds) must provide a report at the completion of the grant, and follow these grant/distribution conditions:

  • Use funds only for the purposes as described in the grant application; prior authorization is required to use grant funds for another purpose.
  • Will notify the Foundation of any change in legal or tax status, changes in staff related to grant purposes, ability to expend grant for intended purpose, and expenditure from grant for any purpose other than what the application indicates.

The Foundation will have reasonable access to these files for the purpose of financial audits, verifications, and investigations it deems necessary concerning the grant. These files will be maintained for at least four years after the completion of the grant.
  • NOT expend any grant funds for political or lobbying activity.
  • To return an unexpected funds or unused portion of the grant to the Foundation.
