Foundant Grant Lifecycle Manager

From where I stand, GLM is well-suited for use by small-staffed charitable foundations who make more than thirty (30) grants a year and distribute more than $500,000 in funds to non-profits. The software is able to handle every step in the grant-making process from receipt of a request, to the evaluation and decision regarding the grant, to tracking the pay-out, and to closing the grant when the work or the year is completed.

Little Green Light is the Cadillac of CRM's in my opinion. It is extremely user friendly and everything is just a click away.

Pros

Foundant Grant Lifecycle Manager

  • Foundant provides a streamlined grants management solution for reasonable cost.
  • The company listens to its users, collecting ideas and making improvements. Updates to the software are rolled out several times a year. When something cannot be changed right away, the company gives context and forecasts when the change might be possible.
  • While the software is easy to use, it also offers more advanced features (such as merge templates) that allow more customization for the advanced user.

Little Green Light

  • Donor touch tracking (calls, meetings, etc.)
  • Relationships and stewardship
  • Forms for event and other registrations
  • Financial reporting and gift tracking
  • Great support team! I was initially worried because they don't have a contact number, but they reply to support questions really quickly and are always helpful.

Cons

Foundant Grant Lifecycle Manager

  • Need a smother process for third party responses. Currently individuals recommending more than one student for scholarships have many emails to deal with to find the correct link to upload the correct student's letter.
  • Questions that would filter which applications the applicant would apply for.

  • I wish the LGL Forms could send notices when a customer's recurring payment fails.
  • More integration with other programs would be wonderful.

They do not do phone support or chat support, only via email. Every time I have contacted them, they have responded and within 24 hours either solved the issue or explained that the software does not have the functionality.

Alternatives Considered

Foundant Grant Lifecycle Manager

I have not used other online grantmaking products or evaluated others. I used to use MicroEdge Gifts, but not the online application version. It was a stand alone management system. This is hands-down better, easier to use and a more complete system

LGL is significantly less expensive with higher functionality, easier for more users to access, and has more information easily viewable without pulling a formal report.

Return on Investment

Foundant Grant Lifecycle Manager

  • Positive customer service--fairly easy to use for applicants.
  • Positive--easy to run reports you have already set up, so [it] saves time.
  • Negative--limited question types makes it harder to gather the data we want to track.
  • Negative--our budget is more complex than can be tracked in Foundant, so we have to use a separate program.
  • Negative--we have to track potential grantee conversations in a separate program.
  • Negative--getting data ready to display in a dashboard takes a lot of time to manipulate in Excel.
Kristen Summers | TrustRadius Reviewer

Little Green Light

  • Email communication has improved with our donors because they feel the email is addressed just to them.
  • We've been able to improve our donor management to include gift management and pledges.
