Common Grant Report
Reporting on a funded grant is a critical piece of the grantmaking process. Grant reports allow the funded organization to share the progress, successes, and challenges encountered while implementing the funded grant. Reports also allow grantmakers to gather information on the impact they are making in their own mission areas. In most instances, a grantmaker will not accept another request for funding until the organization has completed the report on their previous funding.
If you have any doubts, confirm with each of your grantmakers that the CGR is acceptable for their purposes. Make sure you tailor your documents for your grant and your grantmaker, including requirements or evaluative information specific to the grant and/or funder.
The CGR is provided in Word so you can open and download the document to your hard drive, writing your report directly on the document.
The User’s Guide is designed to assist you in using the CGR effectively. It is presented in PDF format with bookmarks and can be used online or as a desktop reference tool.
