Qorus was a game changer - enabling us to dramatically increase efficiency while managing more than $1M annually in grant and scholarship support.
Bellevue, Washington (PRWEB) July 08, 2016
Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue was founded in 1952 with one clubhouse in downtown Bellevue. Since its inception, the Club has provided the young people of the Bellevue community with something they needed and wanted most: a safe environment where adults respect and listen to them; a place where they can have fun.
When Qorus Software relocated its head office to Seattle, it wanted to support the local community which has been so welcoming. Microsoft had been working with made Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue and made the introduction.
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Bellevue only has one grant writer, Teresa Docherty, who is responsible for submitting a huge number of grant applications. She spent a lot of time manually collecting information from files and trying to complete submissions by cutting and pasting sections from past applications. This labor-intense, time-consuming process limited the number of grants the organization could apply for, and therefore the programs it was able to offer the community.
Qorus visited the Club and immediately saw that it could help by deploying its document generation add-in solution for Office 365. The add-in is designed to help make the generation of business critical documents, including pitches, proposals, RFPS and grant submissions, easier and more efficient. It allows users to search for and add content sections directly to their Word document.
The solution also makes updating content simpler. For example, when Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue need to edit boilerplate content, they simply change the original text and all related grants are automatically refreshed.

Compiling grant submissions is easier than ever. And, as the Club builds its library of re-usable content, the process gets faster and easier.
As a result, the organization is on track to halve the time it takes to produce submissions, which will double the number it can submit annually. This means more funding, which means more programs for the youth of Bellevue.
Docherty explains: “We rely on the generosity of good people to help us serve those in our community who need us most. Those people expect us to be good stewards of their hard earned money, and to optimize its impact.
“Qorus was a game changer - enabling us to dramatically increase efficiency while managing more than $1M annually in grant and scholarship support – which goes to provide programs that serve families and children in need. We are on track to double the number of annual grant submissions, and more money means more programs for more kids. Qorus is constantly improving their product. The result is, they are constantly improving the service we can provide the children who need it most in our community.”
Ray Meiring, CEO of Qorus, said: “When we moved to Seattle, we received such a warm welcome from the community. We wanted to return the favor by supporting a local organization, and this is a fantastic one.
“We’re looking forward to growing this partnership with Boys and Girls Clubs of Bellevue. They are such a valuable asset to our community.”
