A Standard Proposal will be accompanied by four documents included as Appendices:
- A List of Governing Board Members

- A Copy of the Organization’s Most Recent Audited Financial Statement
- Project Budget
Limit attachments to those listed above unless the foundation has other requirements.
New organizations are not likely to have been audited when they begin applying for grants. Since all organizations should prepare for an audit, the applicant may want to include a statement verifying the organization has established a system of accounting that will permit an effective audit at the end of the fiscal year. The statement should be signed by a Certified Public Accountant or the chairman of the board’s finance or audit committee.
