In most cases, grant applicants will be contacted by phone within 24 hours of the Trustee meeting with information about action taken by the Board of Trustees.
The confirmation email for grant recipients will include terms of the grant and a request for wire instructions for transferring funds. Funds are typically wired within 15 business days once your information has been received.
If you have received a multi-year grant, you will be asked to submit an interim report on the anniversary of the grant. The Foundation will contact you to prompt submission of the interim report and include details about the report’s format.
At the end of the grant term, a final report will be due one month after the close of the fiscal year in which grant funds were fully expended. We would be glad to receive a report prepared for other audiences provided it speaks to the work funded by the Dobbs Foundation with some specificity. Once we have received your report, we will schedule a 30-minute Zoom conversation to debrief together if needed.
We encourage and hope grantees will stay in touch after the grant has closed. We love to hear from grantees with updates about work in which we have invested. Please feel free to contact the Foundation at any time with these updates.
