Grant Reporting

The Foundation makes report forms available on our online Grant Portal approximately one month before they are due. Grantees will be notified via email when the report form is available.

Unrestricted Operating Support Grants (over $50,000) – Grantee Survey

Our Learning and Assessment Framework is designed to comprehensively and systemically understand and assess how the Foundation’s unrestricted grants contribute to strengthening organizational effectiveness. At the close of an Unrestricted Operating Support (U.O.S.) grant, the executive directors of grantee organizations are asked to complete a 45-60 minute online survey in lieu of a final report. Your program officer will then engage you in an in-depth conversation to discuss your survey responses. There is no interim report required for U.O.S. grants.

The insights and information we gain from this framework will be used to improve our practice as a funder, and we believe will ultimately benefit grantees and those they serve. We also hope our findings contribute to the more widespread adoption of unrestricted funding by the philanthropic field at-large.

Unrestricted Operating Support grants ($50,000 and under)

For grants of $50,000 and under, organizations are asked to submit a brief final report at the end of the grant period.

All Other Grants

For all other grants, we typically ask for periodic progress reports and a final report at the end of the grant period. Specific deadlines and instructions are outlined in each organization’s grant agreement.


If you have questions about your application or grant reporting, please contact your program officer. For questions about our Grantmaking Portal, please contact Lupe Mejia, Grants Management Assistant, at

Candid. GuideStar

For those awarded grants in November 2023 or later, we require that your organization’s Candid. GuideStar profile, including demographic data on at least the race and gender of the leader(s) and Board, is up-to-date.

For those with grants awarded before November 2023, while not required, the Foundation will be importing GuideStar profile information from Candid. All registered 501(c)(3) organizations have a Candid. GuideStar profile. Detailed resources on how to claim and/or update your Candid. GuidStar profile are included below. We encourage your organization to update its GuideStar profile regularly.

Completing your Candid profile is easy and free. Here’s what you need to do:

For organizations with a Candid profile:

  1. Log in to your Candid account.
  2. Review and update your leadership, board, and staff demographic data.

For organizations without a Candid profile:

  1. Claim your organization’s profile on Candid.
  2. Enter your leadership, board, and staff demographic data.

If you need assistance with collecting or sharing your data, please contact Candid for support or refer to the following resources to learn how to use best practices in collecting and sharing publicly self-identified data from individuals:

Fiscally sponsored projects/organizations do not have a Candid. GuideStar profile. For grants awarded after November 2023 we require demographic data on at least the race and gender of the leader(s) and Advisory Board of the project/organization (not of your fiscal sponsor) be submitted though the grantee portal.

Click the button above to sign into or create a Candid profile, where nonprofits can easily share demographic data with funders, researchers, donors, and other stakeholders.
