A Heartfelt “Thank You” Note
Write a formal thank-you note to the Foundation donors who made your grant possible—those who give to the Greatest Needs Endowment or Parish Assistance Endowment.Keep in mind that your words of gratitude may be used in publications like The Harvest or our newsletters to encourage more people to give to these endowments. Please take the time to express yourself thoughtfully and in detail, even if you have already thanked Foundation staff by phone or email. Two or three paragraphs should suffice, but more is certainly welcome!
This section is the heart of your grant report. Please recap what your organization proposed to do with the grant and how the project was implemented. Highlight any areas in which project execution exceeded your expectations, as well as any areas of difficulty. Two or three paragraphs are sufficient.
Outcomes and ImpactShare data or stories that illustrate the difference this project has made to your Catholic entity and/or community. Perhaps revisit the needs and expected outcomes you included in your initial grant proposal and detail whether they were met. You may or may not have a lot of numbers or quantifiable data. That’s okay! The Outcomes and Impact section is a great place to share participant quotes, testimonials, or stories of transformation—any good news that is a direct result of your project. Testimonials, quotes, and stories are of critical importance to the Catholic Foundation of Eastern Montana and your grant impact report will be considered incomplete without them (which factors into future grant award decisions).

Check the boxes/circles next to the information you are enclosing. Select all that apply!
Your words and images may be used in The Harvest, our diocese’s quarterly newsletter, or in Foundation newsletters and publications. Thank you for everything you do for Christ and his Church!
