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.

Network for Good

Network for Good is well-suited to be a comprehensive donor management system. It is less appropriate to use in terms of accounting or getting an accurate overview of how your organization is doing financially although it can give you a round-about idea.

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.

Network for Good

  • It is very simple to enter donations and donor information into the Network for Good system.
  • We needed a way to track "soft credits" in our donor management system, and once we discussed this with the Network for Good staff, they updated the system to allow us to track "soft credits," and the process of tracking them is very simple.
  • If we have a question on how to use anything in the system, there are many how-to guides and videos that are easy to find. If the guides or videos do not help, the staff are available very quickly to help us troubleshoot our problem.

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.

Network for Good

  • When creating a campaign page - it looks strange with then start/end dates/times shown if campaign runs for more than 1 day
  • NFG should be able to download more than jpeg documents
  • There is no way of changing the delivery time

If an organization can afford it, having [Network for Good] do the data migration will save time.

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

Network for Good

We are a small nonprofit. QuickBooks was a great tool for us to be able to communicate to our accountant, but that is where it stopped. NFG takes our QuickBooks information and turns it into valuable reports, analytics, thank you’s, and professional appearance. It gives our nonprofit a platform to communicate efficiently and accurately with our donors.

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.

Network for Good

  • NFG was a major part of our growth during the Covid-19 pandemic. We switched to NFG March of 2020 and it was the main tool we had to stay connected to our donors and community. We were able to share our "story" with the video component and the easy drop down email acknowledgements. The templates empowered our staff to try new ways of communicating.
  • We produced a virtual group walking challenge from Nov 2020 - March 2021 and with NFG's help, we had easy outreach that inspired groups of otherwise isolated people to create teams together logging miles and sharing pictures and becoming community that was new and important. It was so easy to sign-up via NFG and it built a list of guests for this event and that list has become way more involved in our Center than ever before. It transformed relationships with clicks of a button in NFG.
  • Moving through 2021, it has proven more challenging than 2020. What was new is now old but NFG is a resource for innovation and new approaches that has become tremendously valuable to our organization. The creativity coming out of NFG matched with the business acumen is powerful and helps my small organization greatly. We are really small, but with NFG it feels like we have a team behind every initiative.
