All current grantees of Firedoll Foundation should submit an End of Year Report when reapplying for funding. The End of Year Report and any new grant requests should be sent approximately eleven months after you received funding. However, there is no deadline. You can be as late as you like - you won't lose your place in our docket because of a late report or application. If we start to worry, we'll call.
We want this report to be as painless as possible: just two or three pages (two is fine), addressing the goals and objectives outlined in last year's proposal. The brevity makes it painless for us as well.
We believe that no path is altogether smooth, so we are interested in any obstacles or difficulties you may have encountered last year, as well as your successes. We view setbacks as an opportunity to help if we can, never to penalize, and we put great store in an honest, transparent relationship with our grantees. It is disconcerting for us to find out about problems or major changes in a grantee organization from some source other than the organization itself. If your organization has undergone any staff or mission changes over that past year, please let us know in the report.
Current Firedoll grantees may submit a proposal for new funding. Please submit a proposal for renewed funding simultaneously with your End of Year Report. This proposal of no more than three pages should include a budget (either project-related or organizational, depending on the nature of your request). There is no need to include your organization's history or background information unless you feel it is vital to understanding the project. See our proposal guidelines here.
