Measuring Impact

Groups that are awarded a grant are required to report on the impact of the project.  This is often called “monitoring & evaluation” and is really important for a number of reasons.  When you receive your ‘successful grant’ offer letter we will include the appropriate impact measurement form and the date that it should be returned.

This enables us to learn more about the impact and benefit of our grants on local communities which, helps us to improve our grant-making.  It also provides us with important feedback for our donors and funders on the outcomes that their support has delivered, in turn encouraging them to continue providing that support.

 Typical timeframes for impact reporting:

  • For ongoing revenue projects, within one month of the end of the period that we are funding (this is often a 12-month period).
  • For shorter-term projects (including capital grants and one-off events) usually within 6 months of the grant being made.
  • As part of the Impact Measurement, we may request updates on the project’s progress and from time to time will also be in touch to schedule a visit with you. We love to see projects in action and we always make sure visits are arranged at a convenient time for all parties involved.
