Progress Report Template

Note: A progress report is sometimes called a field report or a quarterly / six monthly report.

Progress reports are used by a project team to update the donor or head office on the status of the project (for example, at the end of every quarter or 6 month period). There are also times where progress reports are shared with partners and stakeholders.

In many cases the donor or organisation will have a specific template that must be used for a progress report. If they don’t have a template then you might find this template useful.
