Information

 
Answer

Once you have submitted a Cultural Data Profile Survey, you can use that information for a grant application by generating a Funder Report.

Only organizations with at least one completed Cultural Data Profile Survey can run or produce a Funder Report. Please check the grant guidelines, as most grantmakers require 2 or more years' worth of data. If an organization has 3 or more years completed, the Funder Reports will include the 3 most recent fiscal years of information.

Follow these steps to run or produce a Funder Report:

  • Log in to your account (da.culturaldata.org). At the top just below the the black bar that goes across your screen you should see "Funder Reports" 
  • Select "Funder Reports" and you will be taken to a full listing of all your organization's past grant program applications.  
  • To apply to a new grant program, enter the name of the grantmaker (or a partial name) in the search box and select "Find"
  • A new list will appear with the available grant programs for that grantmaker and a "View" link on the right hand side.
  • Basic grant requirements will appear, and an orange "Submit data" link. Select "Submit Data".
  • This will produce a Funder Report and allow a grantmaker to view your data if they log onto the platform. Typically grantmakers do not look at applicant data until after the grant deadline.
  • Follow the prompts; there will be three pop-up windows.
  1. First it will ask what year you would like to include (select your most recent fiscal year)
  2. Second it will confirm with you that you are sharing fiscal year x, y and z.
  3. Third it will confirm that your information was shared. When your Funder Report is ready you will receive an email with a link to your report. You will also be able to access the Funder Report by clicking on the "View Historic Submissions" button on the Funder Report page.
Many grantmakers require applicants to send either a digital or paper copy of the Funder Report with the rest of the application materials. Please check your grant guidelines to be sure you complete the full application process correctly.
