Circle of Service requires that grant recipients provide reports as indicated in their grant terms.
Reporting requirements differ for each grant. For questions about which reports are needed for a particular grant, please consult your grant terms or get in touch with your program officer. For questions about when to submit a report, please consult your grant terms, your program officer or our Tracking and Reporting FAQs.
Reports to Circle of Service are submitted directly through the same online system as our application.
- To submit your reports through our online system, please sign into your COSF account through this link, using the same username and password used for your grant application. If you cannot remember your password, or are having any other issues logging into the system, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call us at (312) 897-1111.
