Grant Reporting Requirements

Blackbaud Outcomes Progress Updates:

As a grant recipient you will be required to report on the progress of the outcome measures you selected in your grant application. The Outcome reports will be due every six months, until your project end date; which is based on the dates you selected in your grant application as your project start and end date. (For example, if your project start date was 6/1/2018 and your project end date is 6/1/2019, you will be expected to provide the first outcomes update by 12/1/2018, and the second/final update will be due by 6/1/2019).

As your progress updates are due, they will be listed on the home page of your Blackbaud account. To access your account, login to https://portal.blackbaudoutcomes.com.

An email reminder will be sent to the account owner from the following email address: outcomes@blackbaud.com Please be sure to add this email address to your Whitelist to ensure receipt of notifications.

Please note that the Outcomes Progress Updates allow PUCF, as the funder, to aggregate the data and analyze the collective impact of our grant giving programs. A final report will also need to be submitted upon reapplying for a grant.

Final Report:

In addition to the progress updates you will be required to submit a narrative report with your new application. This report will paint a clear and detailed picture of the previously funded program and aid PUCF in the decision making process. Please use this PUCF Final Report Template and add it to your new grant application on the "attachments" tab.
