Most of the ones used / evaluated were 2012 (or older) and most of them do not exist any more. We Started with Gifts ONLINE and continued with Blackbaud when they bought GIFTS.

Using Blackbaud Grantmaking at a Family Foundation

Blackbaud Grantmaking had the features I needed at a reasonable cost for an organization our size, given that we don't accept online proposals or reporting yet. I needed the ability to: manually enter proposal data, link to GuideStar, import public charity status info, check OFAC watchlists with an audit trail, generate documents and emails from templates, and export data to Excel, among other requirements.

Blackbaud Grantmaking - very functional, but not integrated

  • good done great and foundant
Four years ago when we first considered Blackbaud Grantmaking, two software providers presented demonstrations of their products to our foundation. We reviewed Good Done Great and Foundant, but found that Blackbaud Grantmaking had more features and the functionality we were looking for. However, technology has advanced over the last four years and there are several technology solutions in the market that are now competitive with Blackbaud Grantmaking and we'll be evaluating those products over the next year or so.

As I have said it is extremely versatile. However it can also be confusing. There is always room for improvement. Blackbaud provides extensive online training, good response time from the help desk, a method of recommending enhancements as well as interaction with other users and enhancements are scored by users to determine the importance of enhancements to users.

  • granted GE
At the time that I used GrantedGE, the product was in the development stages and there were a lot of bugs and issues with functionality. The customer service didn't have the bandwidth to quickly respond to issues. BlackBaud's customer service and history in the field are advantages.

We also looked at Good Done Great and a couple others. CyberGrants was actually our top choice, but the previous CEO didn't want to sell his product to oil companies or other businesses he disagreed with.

Blackbaud Grantmaking - Flexible, but Doesn’t Support Custom Scoring for Reviewers

We thought the other systems were much more affordable and some had better features. However, we were locked into a contract with MicroEdge/Blackbaud, so had to stick with them until our contract expires. If the pricing were better we might consider staying when the contract expires.
