Periodically, changes will be made to the foundation’s grantmaking processes; we will communicate those changes in the space below.
Approximately 30 days before your report is due, you will receive an email with instructions on how to activate your grantee portal account in the new system. Please be sure to add the following email addresses to your “safe list” to ensure that you receive all future notifications from our new system: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
If you have questions about an upcoming report requirement, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 713-238-8150.
As part of the transition, we will be decommissioning our former grants management system, GMS, later this year.
Please note: You will not be able to view submitted applications and reports for your organization’s previously awarded grants (i.e., funding history) in the GivingData grantee portal. If you do not have copies in your records of these documents, please log in and download them from GMS as needed before November 15, 2019.
