Budget Modifications

There are many reasons why a grantee may wish to modify his or her budget. Our grantees sometimes receive overlapping funding from other sources or are forced to change costs of certain items due to project delays or difficulties. We ask that all major changes (adding or deleting line items or changes of over $1000 to a line item) to your budget as submitted with your original grant application be submitted and approved by our office.

Our process for requesting a change to your grant budget is fairly simple. Simply alter the original excel budget file you originally submitted with your grant application and attach the new budget to an email to grants@leakeyfoundation.org with a note explaining the changes and why you are requesting them. Most budget alterations are approved.

If you need a copy of the original budget submitted with your grant application, we’ll be happy to furnish you with one. Again, just write an email to grants@leakeyfoundation.org, and we will get a .pdf version of your original budget to you as soon as we can.
