Cornerstones of the support relationship

The communication process between you as project manager and us as grant-making agency will not end with the awarding of funding, but will continue as a defined support relationship. The framework is the specific project assistance defined in a support agreement. Of central importance is the reporting process linked to project stages. This comprises the interim and final reports for the internal foundation controls and the public reports on the Gebert Rüf Stiftung website.
