If you have received a grant award letter, the payment method will be indicated in the first paragraph. Wires can take up to five to seven business days to post to your account.  Checks are mailed separately from the award letters.  If your organization uses a fiscal sponsor, the payment will be sent to your fiscal sponsor and you have received a hard copy of the award letter. We recommend that you first check with your finance department and/or your local bank (if the funds were wired) to locate the payment. Please contact our national office in San Francisco and request to be connected to someone in the Grants Department if there appears to be an error.
