Grant Final Report

To meet the requirements for this phase you will need to complete and submit the “Grant Final Report” form.  To assist you with this a Grant Final Report Instructions file is provided so for your review and edification. It would be prudent for you to once again read the “Grant Information” tab as it provides naming conventions for file submission and ‘subject’ identification for electronic submission.  If you have any questions related to the progress report process please contact Bettina Sterling, Grant Coordinator of the American Cavalier King Charles Spaniel Club Charitable Trust via email at: grants@ackcscharitabletrust.org
