Follow Up: Tracking Your Investment and Deeping the Relationships
Once a grant has been made, foundations often monitor the use of that investment by looking for follow-up reports by the agency. The nature of our program, however, makes that monitoring difficult. From experience, once a relationship has been made between a school and an agency, oftentimes the students and/or teacher will informally keep tabs with the organization which will provide a reasonable comfort level that their investment was done effectively.
We are looking for creative and consistent ways of monitoring investments, so please pass along any suggestions to Program Director Todd Forman (firstname.lastname@example.org).
