Overall Satisfaction with CyberGrants

My company uses CyberGrants for our grant application process. It's been a fantastic solution for us, and we've appreciated the ability to streamline our different applications in the back end for reporting. Our grantees have been appreciative of the new process, and any issues they've had (learning curves, mostly) have been quickly handled by CyberGrants support. Our implementation process was easy - CyberGrants walked us through the process - and we were up and running in just a few months.

Reporting is a little DIY - it's built so that you can pull reports of almost any kind, and because there are so many options, it can be a little overwhelming at first. I recommend having one or two employees to become internal subject matter experts to help any other staff along the way.
  • Custom grant applications - it was easy for us to create applications that asked exactly the right questions. Features like downloadable budget templates were perfect for us, too.
  • Easy review process - we're able to see the status of any grant's review process in just a few clicks.
  • Help guides on the admin page aren't always the most helpful for the specific questions I've had.
  • Reporting is almost TOO comprehensive - it can be a little overwhelming at first!
  • The time saved on administrative work is a huge win. We used a simple web form for our applications, and spent a lot of time and energy manually entering details into our old system.
CyberGrants is very adaptable, so it's ideal for any team that has a large number of grants to review, especially teams with multiple grant applications running on different timetables. Their employee engagement features, while not something we've used, are an area we'd love to explore further, because they create an overall snapshot of giving to an organization (tying in-kind support from volunteerism, etc. in with gift matching contributions and grant applications).

If you only receive a few grant applications, or a lot of your grant applicants are very hesitant to use computers or online applications, it might not be as worth it for you.
