Managing an Endowment Grant
Sample Terms of Award
A sample Terms of Award is available to review prior to submitting a grant request.
Fiscal Sponsor Agreement
The Endowment for Health recognizes that not every charitable endeavor needs the infrastructure required to become a formal tax exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. For example, an emerging organization may have the energy and vision to carry out their mission, but not the resources or need, to build an infrastructure to become a public charity with a qualified exemption. Additionally, the Endowment for Health promotes collaboration and often times public charity organizations working together on a common endeavor need to identify a Fiscal Sponsor or lead organization to accept grant funding on behalf of a collaborative model. The Fiscal Sponsor Agreement document is designed to provide grant seekers information for how to successfully enter into a Fiscal Sponsor and Sponsored Organization Agreement that meets requirements for grant funding from the Endowment for Health.
It is not unusual for a project and grant budget to change during the course of the project. Grant budget adjustments from one expense line to another of more than $500 require prior approval from the Endowment. Grant budget revisions cannot impact the original grant purpose. To request a budget revision, complete the Budget Revision form, and email your request to SFulton@endowmentforhealth.org
It is not unusual for a project to take longer than expected. No cost extensions may be requested by contacting the Endowment staff person managing your grant. Typically, extensions are granted for six months with a final progress report due at the end of the six month extension. Contact your Program Director to discuss grant extensions.
