INITIAL REVIEW PROCESS
All grant requests will be reviewed by Ms. Jones, in consultation with her advisors. To be considered, all applications must be completed in full. We will try to review all requests within a month of receipt and will try to notify applicants who are being considered within six weeks of receipt. Applicants whose grant requests are being considered will then be invited to submit additional information. Ms. Jones will approve grants in her sole and absolute discretion.
REQUEST FOR FULL PROPOSALS
If we believe that a request should go forward, we will contact the applicant for additional information. The full proposal should provide detailed information about the community need and proposed plan. It should also include a detailed project budget and other information which may be requested by Ms. Jones (including but not limited to photographs, references and community information).
GRANT AWARDS AND MONITORING PROGRESS
Each grant awarded is an investment in your community, and we take seriously the responsibility to ensure that all grant programs are successful. If you are awarded a grant, we will send you a confirmation e-mail which sets forth certain of the grant's terms and conditions.
Throughout the grant term, we will communicate regularly with you regarding the projectís progress. Measurable outcomes and timelines are agreed upon prior to the awarding of every grant. Depending on the type of project and its term, we may require interim reports or other kinds of ongoing communication. Some grants include more in-depth evaluation, which is coordinated in conjunction with you.
With all grant projects, our goal is to motivate others and improve their community. After the funds have been distributed, you agree to make every reasonable effort to document the progress of the project, including but not limited to the use of digital photos, videotapes, interviews and written narratives, which you acknowledge will be published on www.jennyjones.com and/or www.jennysheroes.com.
