When creating grant report forms, keep in mind that while quantitative information is important, some of the best outcomes are the stories that reflect the heart of the grantee’s work. For example, you might ask grantees:
- How the goals documented in the grant agreement were met (in a page or two);
- Financial report detailing grant income and expenses;
- What the grantee learned from the project or work; and
- Any attachments you require or that you discussed with the grantee, such as a budget, testimonials, photos, etc.
You can create a simple reporting form yourself, or use a common grant report form available through most regional associations of grantmakers (visit Giving Forum
for more information).
