Impressions of a Newcomer

My mail concern before hearing about GrantHub at a workshop was how to organize everything that I envisioned would be going on in the grant application and funding process. This software solved my problem and I am extremely happy.

Pros

I like the ease of how to use it as if it were written by a user rather than a software tech. I like the online support. Have used this feature often as I learned the software and found the techs to be very responsive and helpful. Learn more with each webinar.

Cons

Since I am new to this arena, I have no comparisons for which to judge this product. Therefore I have no least likes at this time.

Almost as Good as Having an Expert Do Things For You

My small non-profit needed the organizational power desperately, and we found it here.

Pros

Being new to the grant seeking arena, I can use all the help I can get. Previously, my organization was using spreadsheets and so on to record grants, due dates, etc. Everything seemed arbitrary and it was difficult to keep track of deadlines, due dates, and other important data. This software is like a roadmap in the wilderness. I can't say enough good things about it.

Cons

Not too much in this category. There are some functions that could be added, like letting the user see a stored document without having to download it first, but these are minor compared to its overall value.

GrantHub Excellent Product

We are planning to take on writing more applications because it is not taking as long to maintain our regular applications that are done each year. I would highly recommend GrantHub its features and price point are reasonable for a medium-sized nonprofit organization, wanting to write grants as a main fund raising method.

Pros

Moved from an Excel spreadsheet to manage about 50 applications a year. Much easier to handle and put out monthly reports for the Grant Team and the Board of Directors.

Cons

Save button is not the same on each page.

Foundant for Grantseekers Review

I have been extremely pleased with my dealings with Foundant. I very much appreciate their regular check-ins to see how the software is working for me and to seek input into their development process. Thier webinars for grant professionals are top rate, and I have benefitted from the professional development. The fact that they offer these for no extra cost to the client seals the deal with me. I am a customer for the life of my career!

Pros

GrantHub is a comprehensive grant writer's tool that is invaluable to my work as a grant writing and management consultant. It allows me to track each grant opportunity from research to submission, and on through grant management. The task calendaring feature means I don't miss a beat with deadlines and follow up reporting. The Reports feature facilitates easy grants activity reporting to my clients. I can also add writers in order to assign and track tasks easily, making client and project management a breeze. .

Cons

Can't think of a single think I don't like!

User friendly, accurate info, great support

I needed a simple software to organize and track my grants and prospects. I came into a practice where tracking was manual and extremely time consuming. I looked at other programs and all were very time consuming to learn. This software is so easy. I was able to load most of my grants in in a couple of hours. and now I can glance at due dates and handle the pipeline with far less stress.

Pros

This is a VERY user friendly software; very intuitive and easy to learn. I was able to input and use data immediately. Great reports. In my busy practive I don't have extensive time to learn a new program and this made the using the tool a time saving event.

Cons

So far I can see I would like to explore different ways of seperating funder info, and reports.But I haven't had adaquate time to really get into these.

Response from Foundant Technologies of Foundant Technologies, Inc.

Replied December 2018

Thank you for your review. We strive to keep GrantHub's interface intuitive and easy to use. Also - let us know if you need any help in separating funder information or reporting on your grants. Being able to set up your own funder categories makes this really easy to do!

I find GrantHub very user friendly. It's easy to navigate and the customer service is great.

Pros

The graphs depicting what's been awarded, planned, etc are great. Also the tasks that are upcoming and the reminders. I also like the Foundation feature which allows me to keep updated information on each contact. It's great to have everything in one place.

Cons

There are some features that could be tweaked, such as the Answer Library. I would love it if I could modify my answers in the files, similar to a Google Document. Now if I upload a file, I have to delete it and upload a new file with my updates.

Well-organized, great customer services

Multiple people within the organization call all be working independently and collaboratively on our funding strategy with ease. Keeping a record of what's happened with each grant is extremely useful.

Pros

Structured enough to make our records much more organized, but with enough flexibility to allow us to customize to our needs.

Cons

No great way to create records for rolling deadline grants
No quick way to search where donors are located (have to export files to a spreadsheet then sort)

Response from Foundant Technologies of Foundant Technologies, Inc.

Replied July 2018

Thank you for the feedback. I am tracking your suggestions into our idea bank for future consideration! On the funder location idea - many customers put entries into the 'areas of interest' field. That way they can filter on the funder location and/or what regions the funder gives to. But I can see that using the address fields for location would be a great idea. Thanks again!

GrantHub is great and helps me stay on top of deadlines!

Pros

It's very intuitive and keeps all the information that I need. I like that I can have it send me reminders to do certain tasks, and that you can connect to Guidestar and look up foundation information.

Cons

I wish there were an easier way to delete old users but that's about it. Also it's pricey - but definitely an important expense so I turn in grants on time.

Real people answer real concerns of real users in real time. "Customer Service" is real at Foundant.

I did not have to invent or design a spreadsheet to track progress on researching, working on, submitting, and following up on grants.

Pros

It is possible to gather a vast amount of information from various sources that are both directly and indirectly related to my fundraising efforts. The system allows cross-population of data and fields, customizing of reports, and various methods of tracking progress.

Cons

There are some features that seem like common-sense to the software designers, but not to the actual user. For example, if a funder has a rolling deadline, the software requires the user to put in a deadline. It forces the user to enter data which isn't actual or real or useable. Staff are responsive, but slow to make changes that would lower the frustration factor and speed up and increase practicability.

We use GrantHub to inventory and track our grants. Overall, the program has been helpful.

Pros

I like the "Reports" function of the program. It has been helpful in letting us see the Big Picture of our Grants program.

Cons

There still are some "funky" parts of the program that I don't like. For instance, if you forget to "save" all the data that you have input and you go to another window then the data is lost. A final reminder would be helpful: "are you sure "

Great tool. This had made grant tracking and managing deadlines so much easier!

Pros

Ease of use. You don't need a training to use the software. Support is great, helping with any questions or issues you may have.

Cons

Wish there was a way to track if checks have been received yet, what account it was deposited in, and where the funds could be allocated to or restrictions on the grant. Basically more options for managing a restricted grant once awarded.

Granthub is a great project management tool, as well as a database. We work better because of it!

Pros

Granthub helps us to effectively track the proposal preparation process, collaborate with multiple individuals in an organized way, and to never miss a deadline.

Cons

It does not appear that Granthub sends task reminders when changes are made to the task or to the owner. This would be helpful.

GrantHub is very helpful in keeping everything in one place and having reminders of deadlines.

Having a lot of information about funders, deadlines and grant proposal elements that we use routinely aggregated in one place has been very helpful in keeping organized.

Pros

I finally have everything in one place and not in spreadsheets, calendars and emails. When I had to provide information on our grant seeking to a consultant it was very easy to download the history which the person receiving it greatly appreciated.

Cons

The interface is pretty mundane. It could be more aesthetically pleasing. Integration with Outlook could be beneficial also--e.g. putting deadlines on a calendar.

It's great to have a software product actually designed to track grant funding.

Pros

Having all of our grant work for multiple clients in one place that my remote staff can all access. Being able to track our success rate easily.

Cons

Not really a problem with the software, but I have difficulty finding the time to keep everything up to date. As a result, I don't think we are getting as much benefit from the software as we potentially could.

Grant Hub is relatively easy to learn and use compared to other databases. I highly recommend it.

Organization, reports, tracking, some customization, easy-to-use

Pros

I like how comprehensive the features are for each funder and opportunity. I can track almost everything I need to- when the grant proposal is due, if it's rolling, the project name, the report due date etc. Plus, I can roll all of this into reports. Grant Hub is very intuitive and easy to use. much more so than a CRM or database like Raiser's Edge.

Cons

The only feature I wish the software had was the ability to set reoccurring opportunities. It's not enough for me to just "copy" the task or opportunity because it copies it once. A lot of our grant proposals have the same due day every year for years. We want the ability to project those due dates for the next 3-5 years.

Response from Foundant Technologies of Foundant Technologies, Inc.

Replied July 2018

Hi Lauren, Thanks for the feedback on handling recurring grants. We've heard that before and I added your vote for the enhancements. Our 'Copy' only does one at a time and is the best solution right now. But you can also work with us to export and then import your recurring opportunities for multiple years into your account. Reach out to us if you want to do that.

GrantHub makes my job as a grants manager for a large non-profit simpler and easier to do well.

Easier task management, archival tools, and a quick report on our grants activity at any point in time.

Pros

The software is intuitive and easy to use. I love using the tasks feature to set automated reminders for each responsible party on a grant.

Cons

Documents do not copy over when a grant opportunity is copied for the next year. I also have not found a way to pull items directly from the Answer Library to a grant application.

Pros

I had high hopes to use this for grant management and research. I was hoping that i could use this as a calendar and reminder system,

It never downloaded the information from research sites and this was frustrating. If I have to type everything in again, from say FDO online, what is the point? I can just use their workspace feature instead.

Definitely makes it easier to track deadlines and awards.

Pros

I really like that I can access it from any computer so I don't necessarily have to be in the office to view it or make updates. I also like that I can add as many funders as I need to. It's very user friendly and pretty intuitive.
