Managing your Grant

Congratulations on being awarded a grant from the Mercy Foundation. We look forward to working with you on your project.

It is important to us that you spend your efforts implementing your project and not being caught up with onerous reporting requirements. However, your feedback is important.

We encourage you to keep us updated with your progress. You will be required to provide a Progress Report and Final Report for your project. We always welcome an update on how your project is progressing.

With over 25 years experience in grant making, your feedback is important in improving our understanding of the types of projects, programs and approaches that work well and the types of problems or challenges that might come up. If you do face unexpected challenges or problems, we encourage you to contact us. Together we may be able to come up with a way forward.

We ask that you provide the following documentation during your grant:

Acknowledgment of Grant Forms

Grant instalments are paid once we receive an invoice form you. After each grant instalment is paid, we will email a form for you to sign and email back to confirm that the grant has been paid into your account.

Progress Report

The template for a progress report is available on this page. A progress report is generally due halfway through the project.

Final Report

The final report and financial acquittal is due at the end of the project. The template for the final report is available to download below.


We welcome any photos that you have approval to publicise.

Use of Logo

If you wish to acknowledge the Mercy Foundation for your grant, please call our office on 02 9911 7390 and we will provide you with a jpeg of our logo. We ask that you please send us a copy of the final layout prior to printing/publicising for approval.

Changes to your project

Not all grants proceed as originally planned. Change of staff, environmental factors and other issues may mean that your proposed project won’t proceed as intended. Please contact us on 02 9911 7390 if this is the case to discuss amendments to the project.

Grant Visits

When possible, we visit our grant recipients to discuss how the project is proceeding.
