Once a proposal is funded, grantees are required to complete a mid-project progress report. Designed to collect both qualitative and quantitative information, the report allows the Foundation to compare targeted vs. actual results, and verify a measurable impact on funeral service.
A progress report will address the following questions:
Please indicate which population(s) your project served, and describe the problem/need you are addressing.
- Describe how the project has progressed in achieving the key measurables as outlined in your proposal narrative. Do any measurables need adjustment? Why or why not?
- Explain any problems encountered, unexpected benefits or lessons learned thus far.
- Are additional strategies being considered to ensure the project’s continuation?
- Have you met the goals outlined in your communication plan? Does the plan need to be adjusted? Why or why not? Provide copies as appropriate.
- Please attach a year-to-date financial accounting for the project, specifying the use of foundation funds.
- What project-related success thus far are you most proud of?
