o Let us know how your project went – Required by December 31

When we fund a project, we like to know what happened as a result. It helps us refine our granting process and lets us talk to our donors about the impact we are having in our community.  It may also help us when we come to consider another grant application from your organization.

The online evaluation form must be completed by December 31 of the year in which you receive your grant. Please let us know if you have any questions.
