Corporate grantmakers need and want to know if funds have been used appropriately in addition to the value-add of their philanthropic investments. Organization feedback and data outlining a program’s impact is essential to corporate marketing, sponsorship and future grantmaking.
At this roundtable, AGF corporate funders explored what methods and software their colleagues are currently using (or are aware of) to process grant applications and to collect and report impact data from grantees.
Throughout their discussion, three resources were suggested by the group:
Stellar Technologies – https://www.stellartechsol.com/sf/
Idealware Reports – A Consumers Guide To Grants Management Systems
Simplify: Less Process More Purpose – http://www.simplifynow.org/data-sharing/
