CyberGrants, corporate philanthropy software providers, announced the release of their latest resource, “8 Facets of a Seamless Grantmaking Process,” built to support and manage grantmaking processes from planning, to implementation, company engagement, goal tracking, and disbursement option management so giving programs never fall short.
The grantmaking process will always be full of challenges to overcome, but with these insights garnered from years of working with foundations of all sizes, an efficient grantmaking process is made possible. The new grantmaking guide provides tactics on:
Fostering collaboration across the grantmaking lifecycle
Investigating your grantmaking ROI to prove its worth
Making your grantmaking come full circle
Creating a more personalized follow-up plan
Setting realistic guidelines for everyone's best interests
Shaping your culture for increased participation
Reshaping the payment disbursements process for faster results
“In any project of scope, there’s a period of feeling completely overwhelmed, which is why we created this guide. It doesn’t matter how many times you’ve performed the tasks, how many people are working alongside or ever how much motivation you begin with, simply starting can be an obstacle,” said Nita Kirby, Director, Client Strategy at CyberGrants.”
When it comes to grants management, an ideal situation is to both benefit a business’ bottom line and positively impact employees and the community. To achieve this, it’s time for foundations to think more holistically in terms of resources at their disposal and what they can provide to nonprofits. Writing a check and shipping a press release to the masses is not an effective partnership.
48% of nonprofits believe grantmakers don’t understand their needs. Perhaps this is due to the fact that only 3% of foundation programs assess formal needs when considering additional assistance to provide beyond grant money.
Many grantmakers have been relying on the internal process for grant payouts for years, but the grants field has changed dramatically since the turn of the century and it’s time companies reevaluate their processes.
Before companies can truly make a grantmaking process seamless, the current processes in place must be evaluated. Post-evaluation, follow the 8 steps outlined in the Grantmaking Guide to create a truly well-oiled grantmaking machine.
