Report and Evaluation:

The McNeely Foundation sets high standards for its grantees. Grantees' performance is evaluated in order to learn from successes as well as mistakes. To that end, the completion of the McNeely Program Report Form and the McNeely Foundation Financial Report Form is required at the end of the grant period or with the next application (whichever is sooner), which is generally 12 months from the receipt of the award letter and grant check. Grantees should refer to their grant agreement letter for information about their report due date.
