- notify your Program Officer if there are any changes to your originally approved grant (e.g. grant end date, budget line item/s, list of activities, etc)
- submit your grant report as required by your grant program
- submit your grant's list of expenses and scanned grant receipts as required by your grant program. Check the guidelines at Grants:Documenting project expenses, if needed.
- return any unused grant funds to WMF by following the instructions at Grants:Return unused funds to WMF or contact your Program Officer to suggest another way to make use of the grant funds for their review and decision.
