Progress report and final report

All grantees must submit a final project report. Grantees who have been awarded funding for a multiyear grant must submit an annual interim report using the online service.

PROGRESS REPORT

Grantees who have been awarded funding for a multiyear grant must submit an annual progress report on the online grant service. The progress report must be submitted within a month of the end of each year of funding. The reporting period runs from the start of the grant payment, not the start of the calendar year. Without a progress report, grant payments cannot be continued.

The project leader is responsible for the reporting of the organisations and working groups.

From the perspective of the Foundation, progress reports primarily serve as means to communicate with the grantee or project’s working group and track its progress. In addition, through progress reporting we aim to encourage grantees to make their work visible to interested groups. However, The Foundation does not require its grantees to communicate about their projects. Read more about project communications here.

The report should not be mailed to the Foundation, and it does not need to include receipts.

FINAL REPORT

All grantees must provide a final report (submitted via the online grant service) for their project within six months of the last grant payment. If the funding consists of other expenses only, please provide the final report within eighteen months of the last payment. Please contact us if your project is still ongoing by the deadline so we can discuss additional time for the final report.

The project leader is in charge of reporting for organisations and working groups.

A final report must be provided even if the funded project is only partially or not at all completed. Neglecting to submit a final report risks a negative decision for future grants. We may also reclaim the grant.

By reporting, you let the funder know that the grant was used for the purposes for which it was awarded. This is important in ensuring fair treatment of grant applicants and recipients. Reports also provide us with key information about the impact of grants and can be used as a basis for developing the Kone Foundation funding system. The questions for the final report can be found on the reporting form on the online grant service.

In addition to the final report, we ask that literary grantees send a copy of any works that are eventually published to the Kone Foundation office. Lauttasaari Manor residency grant recipients also provide a final report via the online service within six months of the last grant payment.

The report should not be mailed or emailed to the Foundation, and it does not need to include receipts.
