GrantHub is a cloud-based grant management solution designed for nonprofit organizations. Primary features include grant opportunity management, pipeline management, task and deadline management, proposal creation and reporting.
GrantHub allows users to track their funding history and opportunities. This helps with addressing any slowdown in funding activities in the case of new developments and staff or organizational changes. Other features include a central repository of funder and grant information, Excel and PDF export options for reports, email reminders, links to Funder 990 forms and nonprofit reviews.
Users can extract prebuilt reports such as opportunity status reports, win percentage reports and reports on top funders, and they can sort these reports by date range, funder type, owner or program. The Grant Lifecycle Manager module helps users manage, evaluate and track online applications.
GrantHub is available in monthly and yearly subscription pricing options. User support is offered via training sessions, videos, knowledge base articles, email, chat, online and phone.

I like the ability to query my data, which I couldn't effectively do with my spreadsheets. However, they took my spreadsheets and uploaded them into their system so I instantly had two years of history in my database. They are willing and eager to look at customer suggestions and try to improve the system.
They are gaining clients so quickly that sometimes there is a lag in the system response time. They are working to upgrade their system to combat this effect.

I love this software. It has really helped me to manage grant income, deadlines for application and reports. I think that because I use Firefox the system is sometimes slow (ease of use) but lately the software has been very responsive. I would request that more reports could be generated (overall quality) but GrantHub is a great tool for development. There are functions that I know I haven't used to their full potential. At this point, I cannot live without GrantHub!
Ability to keep track of grants, deadlines for applications, reporting, adding funders, keeping information about all of the funders and their giving history.
I would like if their were more reporting options.
I like that it interfaces with Fondant and that it can upload application deadlines. hope that there will be a way to also upload reporting deadlines.
Shannon from Consulting Connections, Inc.
As a professional grant writer and trainer who's been in business for over 20 years, I developed my own way of tracking grants. My method worked very well over the years so well, if fact that I shared it with my workshop participants and integrated it into my guidebook on writing grants. About a year ago, however, I was introduced to GrantHub; coincidentally, my volume of grants I was writing had increased, meaning my method was becoming obsolete. So I took the plunge. I went from my "manual" grant tracking to GrantHub, and I'll never look back. The features I like best? Its seamless way of enabling the grant writer to track deadlines (by offering email reminders, which are hard to ignore); the feature that allows the grant writer to upload documents for each section of any grant for any funder. There's no limit to how many documents you can maintain under each funder's page. And...this is really cool...the user can open the documents on the GrantHub page, so you don't have to go back to your desktop and open the document through your computer. It's all there for you in one location.
The notes and tasks section of the funder's page has compelled me to take better notes and not trust my memory; and for a person with ADHD, that's priceless. Another plus. Simply by clicking on the icon for Guide Star, you can go to any funder's Form 990, which is where you will get most of the information you need to start building your library.
This program does not cost; it saves. Valuable time. On-schedule submissions. Tracking of tasks through email.
Okay. So I might sound like an employee of GrantHub. I am not, but I certainly am a fan! Try it; you'll like it! And one more thing. Your privacy and confidentiality are secure. Don't worry about your notes. No one will read them but you. Happy grant writing!
Sarah from Carmen Pampa Fund
I have really liked using Grant Hub. Previously, my organization relied on using Excel to manage deadlines for grant submissions, reports, contact, etc. It was very difficult to use Excel because it didn't flow nicely with ongoing/rolling deadlines. With GrantHub my colleagues and I (who are remotely based at two different international locations) can easily collaborate on projects. I personally appreciate the automated email reminders, the notes section, and the ability to upload all the documents (requests, reports, thank you notes, etc) that have been sent to a particular funder. GrantHub has helped us work in a more efficient and successful manner as a team.
Jamie from Charleston Animal Society
My management solution of choice. Keeps everything in one place. Keeps me on top of my deadlines and sends me much needed reminders so I don't miss any important details. Allows other members of the leadership team to check the status of where we are - my reporting is super simplified.

GrantHub has saved me hours of work from the previous way I was tracking with spreadsheets and documents. The project planning and management is perfect - assigning tasks with due dates to different team members. One of the best things is the Answer Library that has helped our whole team unify on communication templates to the public (like goals and outcomes). It has also provided a bank of institutional knowledge that can be easily maintained and accessed. I highly recommend this software and this company - the best customer service ever!

The customer support has been outstanding. The "chat" feature is one of my favorite things about GrantHub because a friendly staff person is always immediately available and provides a quick, simple solution to any question or issue I have. There are a few features I'd like to see implemented that would expand how I'm able to use GrantHub... one of which is privacy settings on documents and such for certain opportunities. Having privacy settings for opportunities would enable me to upload documents, such as budgets that show staff salaries, to an opportunity so that it is readily available for the project leader that has access to it.
Easy to use, great customer service/support, and it really helps me keep track of what is next on my to-do list
I wish there was a visual deadline calendar (not just a list of deadlines, but an actual monthly calendar showing deadlines). I also wish there were privacy settings for opportunities/tasks/documents.
Julie from Managed Giving
I am a grant writer who has worked with multiple organizations to obtain a wide variety of grant funding over the years. All of them have used the traditional spreadsheet method of grant tracking alongside overly complex CRM products that were designed for another purpose. When I first looked at GrantHub I thought someone who actually writes grants had finally designed a product to be used specifically for our purposes, and in exploring it further (with 2 clients) it has not disappointed. Existing information was easily migrated, customer service is fast and effective (and rarely needed), suggestions often become software updates, and best of all it provides a centralized, living snapshot (and supporting detail) of all grants in a form and format that even the most technologically challenged individuals can master.

I love the answer bank. It is easy to set up, update and access. I use it every single time I write a grant or grant report.
I also love the customer support that is always available through the chat feature. My questions are answered as soon as I ask them. Instant gratification.
There is so much more I can do with Grant Hub.
I need to find the time to update all my information and deadlines. I plan to retire in the next year and this will be so valuable to the person who takes my place. It will make the transition so much easier.
Makes it so much easier to write grants.
So far I have not figured out a way to input years of past grant information.
It is well worth the investment.
Maggie from YWCA of Asheville
GrantHub is easy to understand and a great way to store all grant information in one place. You can store funder information, grant deadlines, notes from contact with funders, and tasks (LOIs, reports, thank you letters, etc) and assign them to the appropriate people. GrantHub will remind you of upcoming deadlines so that you never miss an opportunity and you can copy opportunities from one year to the next so that you don't have to reenter deadlines each year. It also keeps track of awarded, denied, and pending grants for the year. This software has streamlined our grants process and allowed us to get rid of bulky spreadsheets.
Megan from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Gallatin County
GrantHub is easy to use; it's clean, streamlined, and organized. The software keeps improving with each update. Inputting info is intuitive, and I love the automatic email reminders when a grant is nearly due.
It's useful! Also very easy to use.
Becky from Cancer Support Community Montana
Granthub has completely changed the way we write, track and manage reports for the grants. It has increased our efficiency, ability to stay on time and reduce the chances that we will miss a grant or report deadline. In addition, with this tracking system, we will not lose important information regarding grantor goals and contact names. Thank you Granthub!!

GrantHub changed fundraising in our office. It made it so much more efficient and allowed users to work from remote locations and still communicate effectively. GrantHub took the worry out of ever missing a deadline or searching for notes on a particular client. It was all stored neatly into an online system that was available from any computer 24/7.
I love the team behind the product, you know them by name. Their customer service is superb as they are always available to guide you through any piece of the application. Best part, they actually listen to their customers and incorporate your suggestions and desires into their ongoing upgrades, so the product you are paying for actually gets better and better during your contract without a rate increase.
Nothing! It is very user friendly, has a great reminder system and keeps track of everything!!
