CyberGrants is very adaptable, so it's ideal for any team that has a large number of grants to review, especially teams with multiple grant applications running on different timetables. Their employee engagement features, while not something we've used, are an area we'd love to explore further, because they create an overall snapshot of giving to an organization (tying in-kind support from volunteerism, etc. in with gift matching contributions and grant applications). If you only receive a few grant applications, or a lot of your grant applicants are very hesitant to use computers or online applications, it might not be as worth it for you.

Without a doubt this is a program that I would recommend because of how useful it was for us. Everything is now easier, the applications arrive in one place, everything is automated and the program itself helps us to evaluate the applications faster. I highly recommend it to all companies that provide scholarships.

Pros
Bonterra Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Custom grant applications - it was easy for us to create applications that asked exactly the right questions. Features like downloadable budget templates were perfect for us, too.
  • Easy review process - we're able to see the status of any grant's review process in just a few clicks.

Cons

  • Help guides on the admin page aren't always the most helpful for the specific questions I've had.
  • Reporting is almost TOO comprehensive - it can be a little overwhelming at first!

Return on Investment
Bonterra Corporate Social Responsibility
  • The time saved on administrative work is a huge win. We used a simple web form for our applications, and spent a lot of time and energy manually entering details into our old system.
