Reporting is a crucial part of the grantmaking process because it allows you to capture and share what you’ve learned from your work. In submitting a report, you also help us demonstrate 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.
We do not require any reporting from registered public charities in the United States that received grants $25,000 or below unless otherwise noted in your grant award letter.
Your report should describe progress made in the last year on the work supported by the grant you received from RSF. If your grant was for more than $25,000, kindly submit a financial report detailing the use of the funds. Your report should be approximately 500 to 750 words. Although not required, we encourage the submission of photos and video links to this email.
If you received a grant over $25,000, you are required to submit a report within 12 months of receiving funding from RSF. You will receive an email 30 days before your report is due with a link to our report form.
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. A new report is required every subsequent year until all funds are expended. Please submit your report to this email.
