We are experiencing some minor issues with our Progress Reporting and Final Reporting function on the website. If you have any issues submitting Progress Reports please contact your Grants Manager who will be able to support you with the submission.
If you are having problems and are unable to reach us at a specific time, please draft your Progress Report (or Final Report) as a Word document, email to your Grants Manager and we will accept this as a submission.
Thank you and sorry for the inconvenience.
Since June 2019, if you are awarded funding from TLEF, this is how we expect to keep in touch with you during the course of your grant.
You will have a named staff member who will act as your grant manager. This person will be your main point of contact for any queries or updates during the grant.
Your grant manager will arrange a time to speak to you around six weeks after you sign your Grant Agreement. The grant manager will explain the Foundation’s expectations and approach, but this is also an opportunity for you to ask any questions about the grant.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with invoices, in line with the payment schedule in your Grant Agreement.
In those emails, we ask that you also confirm that:
We ask for a report on the work funded by our grant every 12 months. A request for this report will be sent to you automatically by email with a link to the form setting out the information that we require.
We ask for monitoring reports so we have a complete record of the progress and challenges faced by your organisation as you have carried out the work we have funded. They are also an opportunity for us to learn from the experiences of our grantees, as well as to offer additional assistance where we can.
An example of the questions asked in the progress report is available here. This example progress report is only applicable for grants made from Spring 2020 onwards.
Please note: Where your grant is for less than 18 months in length, you will not be required to provide a progress report; only a final report.
For most grants, your grant manager will arrange a time to speak or meet with you during the year to hear how the work is progressing. This is an opportunity for us to have a conversation about what you are learning from the successes and challenges of the work we are funding.
We will ask for a Final Report at the end of the project. A request for this report will be sent to you automatically by email with a link to the form setting out the information that we require.
We ask for final reports so we have a complete record of the progress and challenges faced by your organisation as you have carried out the work we have funded. They are also an opportunity for the Foundation to learn from across its grants portfolio.
An example of the questions asked in the final report is available here. This example final report is only applicable for grants made from Spring 2020 onwards.
Please remember to tell us about any major changes to the project or organisation in between these reporting milestones – such as changes to key staff members, financial difficulties and/or serious incidents reported to the Charity Commission.
