The Administration of Your Grant

Active grantees manage their grants on our platform Here you can submit reports, process grant change requests and provide information required for payments. Please refer to Exhibit B of your grant agreement with TWCF to see the reporting and payment schedule for your grant.

We have five user spots on our grant form in Fluxx:

  1. Project Director (this has to be the named project director of the grant). This user can answer and submit all reports on behalf of the grant,  complete the TWCF relationship questions in preparation for a grant payment, and complete the amendment form to request change requests to the grant
  2. Protect Team 1 & 2. The Project Director may invite to two users to complete reports (including financial reports) and requesting grant change requests. These users will have the same rights as the Project Director in Fluxx.
  3. Contract Signatory. This person will receive official notices and is authorized as signatory for the organization. They can view the grant request form, add new bank details, verify bank details, complete and submit financial reports and answer the TWCF relationship questions in preparation for a grant payment.
  4. Grantee Representative. This is an Individual who the Contract Signatory may delegate the role of providing and verifying bank account information and submitting financial reports in the post-award stage. They will also be able to answer the TWCF relationship questions in preparation for a grant payment

If you would like to request that a user be added to the Project Team 1 or 2 roles, the project director should email with the new user's full names and email addresses. To add a user to the Grantee Representative Role, the Contract Signatory should email with the full name and email address of the new user.

How to Make a Change to the Grant

What constitutes a change?

The Foundation understands that sometimes unavoidable circumstances arise: a change to the budget, an extension, or other circumstances that hinder an output’s completion. Some changes to your grant do not require the Foundation’s approval. The changes that require our approval are itemized below, but please refer to your grant agreement for the complete list.

  • Changes to your budget
    • Budget reallocation from one budget category to another over the permitted variance (please refer to Section 5 of the grant agreement to see your permitted variance)
    • Any increase in travel & lodging costs
    • Any increase in overhead costs
    • Any increase in the total budget
  • A change in the end date of the grant
  • The removal of an output
  • Change in project director, project co-director, or primary contact

Whom do I contact about a change?

If you would like to request a change to your grant or ask about a possible change request, please contact and the proposal lead who helped you to develop the grant.

What if the project director is moving to another organization?

The Foundation understands that there may be rare occasions when the project director moves to a different institution during the grant period. 

Ultimately, the grant agreement is between the Foundation and the grantee legal organization, not the project director.

When a project director moves to a new organization, there are two options:

  1. Transfer the grant to the new organization. This would require the termination of the grant with the current organization and a new proposal and grant with the new organization.
  2. Keep the grant with the original organization. This may require a budget reallocation—as the project director is no longer employed by the legal organization, we may need to recategorize travel and lodging funds. We may also request to have a project co-director who is employed by the legal organization if one is not already a part of the project.

Please contact as soon as you know that the Project Director is going to move to another organization. We will guide you through the process. The following is an outline of the general process:

  1. A formal notification from the project director
  2. Letter of termination from the contract signatory
  3. Share final financial report and final reports with the Foundation
  4. Return unspent funds to the Foundation
  5. Begin the process of the new proposal and contracting with the new organization

Grant Communication Resources

Acknowledgement and Communications

Grantees funded (in whole, or in part) by a TWCF Grant should acknowledge the Foundation’s support whenever possible. Doing so increases general awareness about TWCF our funding work and our mission. It will also encourage other high-caliber potential grantees like you to apply for future Grant opportunities.

Per our standard grant agreement, TWCF support should be acknowledged via the following acknowledgment statement.

“This project was made possible through the support of a grant from Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc funder DOI 501100011730) through grant [grant DOI]. The opinions expressed in this publication are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the views of Templeton World Charity Foundation, Inc.”

Your grant DOI

Your TWCF grant has a digital object identifier associated with it. Please refer to the grant contract on the first page to find your grant DOI. You can also find the grant DOI on the grant form in Fluxx. 

This will help us to accurately identify and recognize any funding you have received and connect your published outputs with the grant automatically. Because DOIs are open and publicly available, the connection between the publication DOI and grant DOI demonstrates your accomplishments to other funders and the rest of the research community. 

When submitting to a journal or posting other elements of your research (e.g. preprints, data), we ask that you provide the grant DOI in the Award Number (or equivalent) field if one is available, and in the funding acknowledgment section of your work (please refer to the section about regarding how you should acknowledge TWCF support). When using the Templeton World Charity Foundation logo, please note that the brand was modified on May 16, 2024. Please use the following logos:

Social Media Engagement

Why do we encourage social media engagement?

Templeton World Charity Foundation uses various online platforms to highlight project directors, institutions, and grant-funded research. But more than that, social media helps us create a diverse and active community of practice. We seek not only to spread awareness but also to promote collaboration and facilitate the exchange of ideas among a broad range of researchers and practitioners.

Why is your engagement important?

  • It allows the Foundation to connect with you and the work you are doing beyond the progress reports.
  • You are our ambassadors in your communities, and it is helpful to connect with your respective communities.

What are the Foundation’s official communications platforms?

What we would like from you

If you are active on social media, we ask that you consider the following:

  • Send a professional headshot of the project director to our communications team.
  • Make at least one social media post related to the TWCF-funded project (although we encourage you to do so more often—once a month, for example). 
  • Please tag/mention @TempletonWorld so that we can see and share it.
  • Subscribe to the TWCF newsletter here.
  • Send progress updates or milestone events to our communications team (
  • Send any recently published books/articles related to grant-funded projects.

Please take a moment to complete this Google form so that we can learn more about you: Grantee Social Media Information.

While we find tools like Twitter and Facebook indispensable, we understand that not everyone uses social media. If you are not active—or if you’d simply like extra help promoting your work and reaching a broader audience—please feel free to reach out to us so that we can share the news.
