As a condition of receiving a grant, grantees agree to submit a written self-evaluation one year from the application date. It is a candid appraisal of achievements, challenges and lessons learned for the project. The report is provided to advisory committees for their review and becomes part of the grant consideration process for all future applications.
Grantees should download and SAVE the Progress Report for further editing, printing or archiving:
- Download the document, then "Save As". Please note if document is not "Saved As" onto your computer or elsewhere, changes may be lost.
If you are unable to access this document, please call 508-755-0980 to receive it by email or as a paper copy.

* Rosemary Davis Memorial Fund progress reports are due upon the completion of the program or project.
* Mini Grant Fund progress reports are due upon the completion of the program or project.
O&E Site Visitors Program
Nothing compares to a face-to-face meeting with you, at your program site, to help us understand the impact of your work. If you have received a grant from Greater Worcester Community Foundation, you may be contacted about hosting a visit. We try to visit each of our grantees every three to four years.
For the outreach & education visit, we assemble a team of community volunteers that comes with a GWCF staff member to your site. Their goal is to learn about your entire organization, to learn about (and hopefully observe) the program(s) that received funding, and to understand the challenges your face. This is an incredible opportunity for you to tell your story to interested individuals with ties to the community. Following the visit, Foundation staff prepare a brief report which becomes available to inform future grant applications.
