Notes to Grantees

  • The Grantee is responsible for reviewing the Grants Policy and Guidelines.
  • An outcome report is required within 12 months from the date the grant was awarded and must include information on the progress and relative success of the funded project as so determined in the grantee's application in the Method of Evaluation section.  Future requests for grants shall be influenced by the Grantee's compliance.
  • It is the responsibility and obligation of the Grantee to properly publish and/or acknowledge receipt of the grant in conjunction with the successful execution of the underlying program.  Working in concert with TJF, this communication serves to demonstrate the role of the Tidewater Jewish Foundation in building community.  The Grantee should provide this publicity and acknowledgment at the earliest appropriate time.
