Announcing Our New Online Grant Lifecycle Management System!Leave a Comment
Earlier this year, we consolidated our Catalytic and Small & Simple grant programs into one program to help streamline our grant-making process. Today, we’re happy to announce another feature to further enhance our process–our Online Grant Lifecycle Management (GLM) system!
The GLM allows us to better manage our grant application, reporting and impact measuring workflows. It also makes applying for a grant from Neighborhood Allies even easier for YOU! Utilizing the GLM, all of our current and future grantees will be able to submit grant applications and reports online in an easy step-by-step process.
“With our organizational growth and expanding portfolio of grant investments, we needed to improve our ability to manage client relationships, improve internal operations, produce customized reports and perhaps most importantly, track impact and outcomes of our community investments–the GLM is a great tool to help us do that and improve our grantmaking capabilities.”
It’s easy to use.
A grant applicant creates an account in the GLM, and then logs on to that account to access the list of available grants and start a new grant application. Your application can be saved as a draft, and when you log on again it’s easy to return to that draft, make edits, and submit the application. Each account maintains a record of the application history that you can access at any time. Once a grant is awarded, the GLM allows grantees an easy way to see the status of their grant, check due dates, and submit electronic grant reports right from their account.
But we know technology can sometimes be challenging…
So, over the next few months, our staff will be available for phone or in-person training sessions to provide an overview of the GLM, or to tackle any road bumps or questions you might encounter while using the GLM! Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time for your organization’s training.
