Capturing Outcomes Through Reporting

The Yakima Valley Community Foundation utilizes reports from Grantees as a way to capture the accomplishments, highlights, and areas of improvement for monies awarded in the grant cycle.

YVCF values the importance of the work that is funded through the grant cycles and a report for YVCF Board of Directors, donors, and other funders is compiled to include grantee accomplishments. The report type that is required to be submitted depends more on the original grant than the amount of monies awarded. This is because YVCF funds both technical and adaptive solutions to community and social problems.  If you are unsure about which report to submit, contact grants@yakimavalleycf.org

We look forward to reading about your Organization's results, accomplishments and challenges and we will have highlights of your work shared through our social media and placed on our website in the Stories of Progress. We encourage you to enroll in our non-profit catalogue so that we can connect your organization with other funding opportunities as they develop from time to time.
