2021 Grant Reports

The North Lee Community Foundation requires a completed grant report after a grant award period has been completed. So if your received a grant from the North Lee Community Foundation in 2021, you must submit a 2021 North Lee Community Foundation Grant Report. If you anticipate difficulty with meeting the deadline, please contact the grant team at info@northleecr.org as soon as possible to discuss alternative arrangements.

The North Lee Community Foundation has three goals related to grant reports. First, we are eager to read the story of the funded grant. Second, we want both the community foundation and the nonprofit organization to learn from the story, because we believe that evaluation at its best informs learning and drives improvement. Lastly, when possible we use that information to share the story with our donors and the broader community. Not every grant will be a success, no matter how well it is planned, but failure can produce learning that will lead to better results in the future.
