We ask everyone we fund to report on the progress of their work to find out how the grant is going and understand what difference it’s making; but also so that we can learn how to support organisations, their beneficiaries, and the wider sector better in future.
We want to make it easy for you and valuable for both of us. This means we ask for little written information, and ensure we speak to you more:
We ask for a simple progress report one month before you need the next annual instalment of your grant, and/or a final report at the end of the grant. After your final report, we will organise a conversation so that we can both feed back on what worked well, and what didn't, about our funding and its effect on your work.
For most grants, your report should be drafted in Word and submitted online. You will be sent a personalised link to our reporting system two months before your report is due. The report should be based on the past year’s progress towards the (up to) three key outcomes you aimed to bring about, or make progress towards, over the term of the grant. For final reports, please also reflect on progress over the whole grant period.

Funding Progress Report
Although the majority of our grants have associated outcomes, in exceptional circumstances we provide grants without outcomes. Here, we ask that you base your report on the progress of the work that we funded over the past year (or the whole grant period for a final report) in the context of what you planned to achieve when you applied to us.
Please use the Progress Report template - no outcomes and email to firstname.lastname@example.org
