Grantee Communications and Reporting

Grantee Communications and Reporting

Measurement & Reporting

Union Pacific Foundation expects grant recipients to provide a Grant Impact Report on activities completed and project outcomes at the conclusion of the grant period. At a minimum, grant recipients will be asked to report on the following, if applicable to the proposed program/project:

  • Progress against intended objectives, outputs and outcomes (as proposed in the organization's grant application)
  • Explanation if objectives were not met
  • Status update on funds expended
  • Qualitative data (stories, pictures, videos, etc.)

Please note: UPF Local Grant recipients that have not submitted a Grant Impact Report for their grant will not be eligible for future funding.

Grant Reporting Instructions For 2019 Grant Recipients

Reporting requirements for 2019 grants have been pushed to the applicant account on file (i.e., the account associated with the grant application). If the person who completed the original grant application is no longer with your organization or you are unable to access the account, please email upf@up.com to have the account transferred to a current employee.

Grant status reports for 2019 grants are due by August 1, 2020, but may be submitted any time prior to that date. Grantees must complete a 2019 progress report to be eligible for a 2020 grant.
