When the COVID-19 crisis hit, many grantmakers suspended or delayed their reporting requirements for grants that had been awarded. Many others shifted project grants to general operating support with just an email to their grantee. Are these practices that should stick around, and how can we ensure accountability and compliance without grant reports? Grant reports can be used for simple accountability purposes, to have good stories for the board, to build a relationship with the grantee, to evaluate impact, to make future funding or strategy decisions, or to build the sector’s knowledge, but too often our reporting structures and processes don't match these intents. How can you revisit reporting?
During this workshop, participants will:
- Review and assess their current utilization of grant reports.
- Learn more about strategies and examples for making reporting meaningful and equitable – for grantees and grantmakers.
- Create an action plan for improving their practice.
