All grantees must submit a final report detailing the impact and outcomes of their Walters Family Foundation-funded initiative. Interim reports are required for all grants over $50,000, as well as for select projects, as determined on a case-by-case basis. For organizations awarded a multi-year grant, an interim report is required prior to receiving any subsequent payments.
Current grantees, please submit your interim and final grant reports through the online portal and refer to your grant agreement letter for details about your reporting schedule.
