- Energy Management
Eligible organizations seeking grants must be prepared to track and report specific results that demonstrate measurable human impact.
Please note as of 2012, Impact reporting has been changed. Impact reports will now be sent out every three months after you receive your initial grant payment and continue through the end of your grant agreement.
Outcomes and results will be reported by the grantee on a quarterly basis. The Verizon Foundation uses this information to guide grantees in achieving stated outcomes and results, and to measure the social impact of Verizon’s philanthropic investments in its community partners and the programs it supports.
