A great deal of Good Done Great's success is attributable to our extremely professional foundation clients being very detailed about what they need. We listen to what they want and then build it into our product.

Good Done Great’s Grant Management System was rated as the top-scoring product out of 20 products assessed in the 2011 Consumers Guide to Grants Management Software.

Good Done Great’s Grant Management System was given a top-measurement score of “excellent” in 16 out the 17 criteria that the guide reviewed. The guide, jointly produced by The Grant Managers Network, The Technology Affinity Group and Idealware, seeks to help private foundations make sound technology choices about the system they use to accept and review applications, and to track grants throughout their lifecycle.

“We are thrilled to see that all of our research and hard work has been so well received,” said David Barach, executive director of Good Done Great. “I think a great deal of our success is attributable to our extremely professional foundation clients being very detailed about what they need. We listen to what they want and then build it into our product.”

The Guide to Grants Management Software reviews grant-making software, using more than 125 different criteria, such as online applications, internal tracking and review, letters and dockets, evaluations, payments, budgeting, etc. The findings are summarized in a six-page review for each vendor and in a 17-point comparison chart.

“We’re always looking for ways to provide better value for all foundations, not just our clients. For example, we built a free IRS verification tool for checking 501(c)(3) status at Grantr.com so that no foundation will have to pay for free data anymore. We’ll be adding free OFAC checking to Grantr before the end of 2011,” said Barach.
