2. Financial Review
The Financial Review Committee (FRC) is responsible for reviewing the grant applicant’s financial position and grant budget prior to a site visit. FRC members review the general financial viability of the organization, including cash flow, strength of other revenue sources, reasonableness of expenses in relation to the size and strength of the organization and reasonableness of the grant request amount in relation to the other factors described above, and any other relevant factors . Based on that review, the FRC determines whether or not to move the grant application forward in the process.
3. Site Visit Candidates
The objective of a site visit is to complete a due diligence review and to resolve any remaining questions about the organization and its proposal.
Organizations will be notified whether they have been selected as finalists by April 3, 2023.
5. Grantee Reporting
We invite you to tell us about the progress of your grant proposal at our all-member Grants Update Meeting in the fall of 2023. We will also ask you to submit a report (via our application portal) at the end of your Grant period; you will be reminded via email after 1 year and again after 2 years, when the Grant period is complete.
