Grants Management Software to Simplify and Accelerate Grantmaking

Nonprofit Grants Management Features

Grants and Programs

Connect Grants and Programs

  • Program Management: Connect programs, sub-initiatives, and respective grants in a single system to understand how together they’re driving the philanthropic mission forward.
  • Financial Commitments: Increase visibility into the funding lifecycle, what stage each grant is in, funds that have been requested or awarded, and schedule disbursements.
  • Reporting: Gain a unified view of funding programs with reports on populations served, total funding by year and program, grants with upcoming milestones and more.

Applications

Simplify The Application Process

  • Grant Applications: Reduce the time and manual work spent on building applications. Use templates that are based on the unique requirements for each funding opportunity.
  • Private Grant Invitations: For organizations you think would be a good fit for private funding opportunities, send personalized invitations for them to apply.
  • Funding Requests: Make it easy for applicants and grantees to find and apply for funding opportunities and view application statuses.
  • Internal Reviews: Simplify and keep the decision making process moving by selecting only the sections reviewers need to see. Keep a record of the feedback they provide.

Grantee Experience

Improve the Grantee Experience

  • Relationship Management: Get up to speed quickly on grantees and how they’ve engaged with your organization to cultivate better relationships.
  • Grantee Portal: Improve the grantee experience with a portal where applicants and grantees can find funding opportunities and application status, and submit impact reports.
  • Award Updates and Requirements: Increase visibility for grantees by sharing upcoming payment schedules and amounts and what reporting requirements are expected before disbursing funds.

Due Diligence

Gain a Holistic View of Due Diligence

  • Pre-Configured Templates: Reduce the tedium of due diligence with templates that differ by program, grant size, budget and more. Staff can collaborate with places to save comments.
  • Tax Status Verification: U.S.-based funders quickly verify the tax status of an organization using Guidestar data directly in Salesforce. Add commentary with notes for visibility and collaboration.
  • Historical Record: Better understand why a grantee was funded in previous years or not. Each process is saved automatically so you have a comprehensive view of each grantee.
