Grantees are required to submit an evaluation either before applying for additional funding or one year from the award date (whichever is first). You may submit your evaluation as soon as the activities are completed, or include it with your next application.
The purpose of the evaluation is to communicate the impact of your program but also show growth and areas of learning. The evaluation should report on the organizations’ goals and targets that were highlighted in the original application. We are looking to develop strong relationships with grantee organizations and do not see the evaluation as a punitive tool, but the start of a conversation. If goals have not been met, please simply explain the situation and what steps might be taken to improve outcomes in future programs.
The evaluation includes a few questions that should not exceed two pages to answer (preferably less). It also includes an expense report for program or project support or an income statement for operating support.
