Reporting is required for all grants received by foreign or non-501(c)3 organizations and grants received by RSF- sponsored projects (pre-approved grant funds, designated funds and living capital funds). In submitting a report, you help us to demonstrate to the IRS and to our donors that their gift is being used to fulfill the charitable purposes they champion. And since we often share the exciting work of our grantees with our staff, board, and community, your grant report may also create a publicity opportunity via RSF Newsletter or our widely read blog.
Your report should describe what was achieved through the grant, and what activities took place to fulfill the grant objectives. Please click on one of the Guidelines documents below for specific instructions.
Grants made to 501(c)3 organizations do not require reporting, unless the grant was made from a pre-approved grant fund, designated fund or living capital fund at RSF. If you are a 501(c)3 and received a grant from RSF Social Finance from a Donor Advised Fund or field of interest fund and reporting was requested at the time the grant was made, that request is now waived.
You are required to submit a narrative and financial report within 6 months of receiving a grant from RSF. Please submit your report to this email.
You are required to submit a narrative and financial report one year after the grant from RSF was received, if all grant funds have been spent. If you have not yet expended the entire grant amount, please describe the use of the grant funds by providing an annual financial report covering expenditures in the last year. You will be required to provide this report every year until all grant funds are spent, at which time we require a final financial report covering expenditures over the lifetime of the grant in addition to a final narrative report. Please submit your report to this email, following the guidelines detailed in the document above.
