FAQ – Grant Reporting

Do we have to turn in our required narrative and financial report for our last grant before reapplying?
An organization may submit an application for funding before completing their reporting requirements for a previous grant. However, the Foundation will not accept applications from organizations with overdue reporting requirements.

Can we show recognition for your support?
The Stewardship Foundation wishes to remain anonymous. No plaques, memorials, press releases or public acknowledgment relating to the Stewardship Foundation may be used by the Grantee without prior approval, except that the Foundation may be listed along with other donors in your organization’s printed annual report. Recognition gifts to the Foundation are discouraged.

Our organization’s grant report is due, but our audited financial statements won’t be prepared in time. What should we do?
The Foundation does not require audited financial statements as part of the financial grant reporting requirements. Provide year-to-date organizational financial statements (balance sheet and year-to-date income and expense report with actual versus budget comparisons) for the most recently completed month for which statements are available. If your grant was for a specific project, please include actuals expended against the project budget submitted with the application. Include an explanation if there is a discrepancy between the budget and the actual expenditures, or if there are unspent Foundation funds.

Vision House

Children at Vision House enjoying time outside together.

 Vision House helps homeless families move from crisis to stability and self-sufficiency by providing transitional housing and support services. Our goal is to break the generational cycle of homelessness by working with both parents and children. We encourage them to work on their parent-child relationships because a strong family bond is one of the most important pieces to overcoming homelessness. Through case management, life skills classes and mentoring, our program helps families overcome barriers to housing. Parents will also learn to make a child’s education and their overall well-being life-long priorities.
