30: Grants Guidelines
The community foundation submits evidence of wide dissemination of grant guidelines that could be found in the annual report, a mailing list of organizations that receive the guidelines, a printout on your website demonstrating the guidelines availability, etc. The foundation should submit evidence of grants for a wide variety of issues that are not limited to a single focus and the procedures for accessing discretionary or other competitively awarded grants.
- Evidence of wide dissemination of grant guidelines (Cross-check with sample communication materials; can be in either or both documents)
- Grants for a variety of fields/issues that are not limited to a single focus, cause, or constituency (Crosscheck with annual report and sample communication materials; can be in any one or all documents)
- Procedures for accessing discretionary and other competitively awarded funds (Crosscheck with annual report and sample communication materials; can be in any one or all documents)
For the purposes of reconfirmation, a material change is any change that decreases the variety of fields/issues addressed by the organization’s grantmaking or significantly decreases the dissemination of grant guidelines. If you have had material changes, you will need to resubmit any documentation related to material changes. Review all key elements for this requirement by clicking the "confirming" toggle in the upper left corner of this page.
