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.

I think FundRaiser is better suited for smaller organizations that do not have a lot of entries to make and a lot of tracking to do. Larger organizations that make more entries and need to do a lot more tracking might want an application that is a little more modern and user-friendly.

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.

FundRaiser (discontinued)

  • FundRaiser keeps a database for us of our individual, business, and organizational donors for future reference.
  • FundRaiser keeps a database for us of our donors' contributions each year on an ongoing basis.
  • FundRaiser has multiple reports that can be run to fit your specific needs; be it yearly contributions, donor addresses, etc.

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.

  • If you enter a duplicate donor in error, the program will allow you to make one inactive, but will not allow you to delete one. This often causes confusion when going to post-donation payments.
  • The system is also very basic and could be more user-friendly.

When I upgraded my computer I had to upgrade my FundRaiser software. I reached out to customer support, and they assisted me in easily switching the computer my software was on, and then making the upgrade. The customer service department was friendly and helpful. There was a minor glitch, but it ended up going fine.

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.

  • FundRaiser saves us time that we would be spending trying to keep track of donations and donor information on spreadsheets, which saves us money.
