Request changes[edit]

We understand that sometimes plans change. Please use this button to request approval for changes to your grant’s budget while your project is in progress. Any variation of 20% or more to any line item in your budget must be approved by staff here before you make the change (for projects with budgets of $15,000 or more, the accepted variance is 10%).

Budget change request[edit]

Requesting an additional $269 for fiscal sponsorship setup.


Our fiscal sponsor (Peace Development Fund) charges a 1-time setup fee of $250 (+7.5% on top), and we had not accounted for this in the original fiscal sponsor overhead line-item. We have now paid this amount to our fiscal sponsor and have just been approved by them so that they can sign our grant agreement with WMF. Is it possible to be reimbursed for this necessary expense as part of our overall grant? Thanks very much to the committee and WMF for supporting our work on this project!
