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.

We used it for mobile bidding at our annual fundraiser. They are also a part of the check-in process. They made both the auction and the check-in process so much easier at the event. We did not use it for donations last year but we absolutely will this year. I personally don't see where it could apply to our company outside of our event, but we will continue to use them for the gala for sure!!

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.

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.

  • Entering the information can be a bit tedious, but I will know what expect and to plan for this year

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

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.
