Below is a quick snapshot of useful information for grant recipients. Our FAQs may also help.
Ross Trust grant conditions
The R E Ross Trust places conditions on the grants it makes. Except in special circumstances, grant conditions are the standard conditions, which do not require GST to be paid on the grant.
Reporting on your grant
The Trust requires all organisations in receipt of a grant to submit a final report detailing expenditure and outcomes within two months of completion of the grant. If your organisation is in receipt of a multi-year grant, the Ross Trust requires the submission of regular progress report within 12 months of each grant payment.
Please note that if your organisation is in receipt of a multi-year grant and require a grant instalment, you must provide the Trust with a tax invoice along with your progress report. Steps on how to prepare a tax invoice for your grant were provided in the letter first advising of receipt of a grant. The Trust requires reports be submitted using the Progress / final report template.
The R E Ross Trust Emergency Relief and Material Aid Program (ER&MA)
All agencies must submit annual progress reports and a final report 12 months after receiving their final grant under the current three-year program using the ER&MA report template.
If you have any questions about your reporting obligations or about the report templates, please contact the Trust.
