Grantee and Consultant Portal

Supporting Our Partners: Our Response to COVID-19

We recognize that the effects of the coronavirus pandemic have implications for your organization and the work we do together. In light of these shifts, the Foundation is also making changes in how it operates and works with you.

Working Remotely
The Foundation has officially closed all of its buildings and restricted business travel. All staff are working remotely. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your primary Foundation contact for support with your work or if you have questions. Our Grants Management team will continue processing grants and payments and can answer your portal-related questions. If you have not already done so, please consider signing up for electronic funds transfer to receive your payments more quickly.  

Adjustments to Agreements
We recognize that some of your Casey-funded work may slow down or not even happen this year as you focus on more pressing issues. Your primary contact at Casey will reach out to you to determine whether your original plans under our agreement are still feasible and to discuss any necessary adjustments. Our primary focus is giving you the flexibility to ensure the health and well-being of yourself, your staff and the kids, families and communities you serve.

Foundation-Hosted Meetings, Conferences and Other Events
If you have incurred any expenses related to postponed or canceled Foundation events (e.g., for travel, lodging or registration), you may expense them as part of the existing budget in your grant or consulting agreement. And if you need to reschedule Casey-funded events down the road, you can work with your Foundation contact to determine the support available for those activities.

We are constantly assessing and monitoring this ever-evolving situation and will keep you updated accordingly.

Thank you for everything you are doing even as you deal with your own challenges. As always, we truly appreciate your efforts and your partnership, especially during this difficult time.


The portal allows you to complete grants and consulting agreements, view submitted agreements and recent payments and to submit reports and invoices for payment. All submission of applications and reports will only be processed via the portal.

Applications for funding are by request only. You cannot use this portal to create a letter of inquiry or submit an unsolicited request for funding. Also, you can only view grants and agreements that have you listed as a contact. 


Assistance

We truly appreciate your patience and understanding as we launch our new portal. Please make note of current announcements below. If you have questions or concerns, please email the Grants Management team at grantsmanagement@aecf.org. 

To help us assist you more quickly, when emailing, please include:

  • your name;
  • your grant or consultant number (for example GA-20XX-XXXXX); and
  • the name of organization.

Workforce Composition Survey

The Annie E. Casey Foundation asks that grantee and consultant organizations complete the workforce composition survey each year. We use this data to analyze the diversity of our partners, inform our grantmaking decisions and equitably and efficiently target resources in pursuit of our mission. You can complete the survey by clicking on the link that appears in a pale-yellow banner at the top of each page in the portal. This banner alerts you that you have not completed the survey yet. You will not be able to submit new requests or reports until the survey has been completed. If you do not see the pale yellow banner requesting you complete the survey, then the survey is complete.

 

Consultant Invoices

To create and submit an invoice, go to your active consultant agreement by clicking on "Requests" in the top tool bar. Once you select the correct consultant agreement, click on the "Invoices" tab. This page will allow you to see the invoices submitted for the agreement. Click on the blue “+ Create” button on the right-hand side of the page to create and submit a new invoice. 

 

Grantee Reports

Until the reporting feature in the new portal system is fully functional we are asking grantees to follow these directions to submit reports as a short-term solution. 

 

For assistance with the portal, please email grantsmanagement@aecf.org to start a help desk ticket. Please include your name, your grant number or consultant number (for example GA-20XX-XXXXX) and the name of organization in your email to help us assist you more quickly. Any unsolicited inquiries sent to this email will not be accepted.
