While the majority of organisations in receipt of grants from Scops Art Trust report to us on time, we are finding that an increasing number of organisations are not doing so. The reporting obligations are clearly set out in the grant conditions which we send with every grant award letter.

For organisations receiving a one-year grant, you should send us a final report within 3 months of the end of your project. If we do not receive this report, no future applications will be considered from your organisation.

For multi-year grants, we expect to receive an annual report from you before we will consider paying the next grant instalment. You should send this within 3 months of the end of each funded period (for our purposes, we consider a funded period to be 12 months following the payment of a grant). If you fail to report on time, the Trust will withdraw its grant offer and no further grant instalment payments will be made. Similarly, a prompt final report is a pre-requisite to any future application from your organisation.

We appreciate that the delivery schedule of your project may differ from our definition of a funded period, but in order for us to manage our grantmaking schedules and budgets, we have to operate on 12-month timescales. If you are unsure of when to send a report, please contact us and we would be happy to clarify when we expect to receive your report.
