ITF will monitor and evaluate the project and require detailed narrative and financial reports to include photographs where possible
ITF reserves the right to visit projects at any time
ITF spends very little on promotion and marketing and we therefore seek to raise our profile and make our work known through publicity around planting projects.
In accepting a grant from ITF the applicant agrees to highlight the ITF logo and name in any associated publicity.
ITF is required to take reasonable steps to ensure that systems are in place to manage project funds so that good practice is adhered to and that the risk of funds being misused, whether by error or by fraud, is minimised.
ITF has adopted such systems itself and needs to document the systems which partner organisations have adopted and ensure they are following the same standards.
Should your application be accepted ITF will draw up a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which is binding on the organisation.
