FINAL REPORTS FOR THE GENERAL GRANT CYCLES MUST BE SUBMITTED THROUGH WYCF’S ONLINE GRANT SYSTEM.
Unless otherwise stated in the award letter, all grant recipients must turn in a final report. We are happy to accept final reports that have been prepared for other funding organizations or agencies so long as the report covers the WYCF grant period, the narrative is an appropriate description of the scope of work for which you used the WYCF grant funding, and the financials meet the requirements listed in the instructions. If a previously used report is longer or more detailed, that many be used as long as WYCF requirements are met. Please be sure to adapt previously used reports, as needed, to meet the requirements listed below.
Submit your final report for General Operating and Project Grants here.
Announcement of Grant
WYCF asks that grantees share news of their grant award on social media. Any organization receiving funds of over $10,000 is also asked to share news of their award via a press release. You can access our press release template here.
Submission Due Date
Your final report is due within one year from the date your organization receives its award letter and should be submitted here. Please note that in order to be eligible to reapply for funds through WYCF, previous grants must be closed out, which may mean submitting a final report in less than 12 months.
Your final report must contain the primary components listed in the instructions i.e. a narrative and financial report. All final reports should be typed, clearly labeled and include necessary attachments to show evidence of expenditures.
