Toronto, ON (PRWEB) September 04, 2014
GrantBook, a leading provider of technology-enabled services for grantmaking organizations, today announced GrantBook Inside, a managed services offering to meet the needs of grantmakers with few or no staff.
“Small foundations know that technology can help them have a greater impact in the communities they serve and the causes they support,” states GrantBook co-founder Peter Deitz. “What they’re missing are the time and resources to select, implement and manage the tools and applications they need to engage more effectively with their constituents and stakeholders.”
Designed with the benefit of GrantBook’s direct experience working with small and large foundations in both Canada and the U.S., GrantBook Inside provides smaller grantmakers with a roadmap that is based on their specific requirements, and then offers dedicated ongoing support to ensure that each client receives the full benefit of the recommended technologies and tools.
“With our Quick Start approach,” explains Deitz, “we promise each of our GrantBook Inside clients a detailed assessment of their current operations and a fully costed technology toolkit proposal within 45 days.” Recommendations for each foundation focus on four key areas: Application Intake & Review, Contact and Grants Management: Board Package Preparation, and Office Productivity.
Mario Gravelle, Learning & Innovation Analyst for The Counselling Foundation of Canada, recently shared his appreciation for GrantBook’s commitment to innovation in philanthropy: "I am finding the configuration really fantastic! I love having a system to support my work. GrantBook has freed me up to focus on the more strategic work of the Foundation.”
The initial QUICK START phase costs $7,800 per client, with immediate opportunities to recover some or all of the investment through lower operating costs or reduced time spent on administrative tasks. GrantBook also offers a cohort program each month for foundations that are interested in participating in the Quick Start as part of a group, to benefit from shared implementation and support costs and lower per-client licenses for some or all of the recommended tools.
The launch of GrantBook Inside complements GrantBook’s strategic consulting offering for larger grantmakers, which is now branded as GrantBook Bespoke. In total, 49 projects are underway or completed since GrantBook’s inception two years ago.
Anil Patel, GrantBook co-Founder adds, “with the strategic alignment of our services into Inside and Bespoke, we can match any grantmaker, large or small, with vetted and right-sized technology to run their organization more effectively and increase the net value of their grants.” For more information visit http://www.grantbook.org or call (647) 775-8150
