Community Foundation to Streamline Business and Enhance Service with Stellar’s iPhi Product Suite®

Stellar Technology Solutions LLC (http://www.stellartechsol.com), a leading provider of web-based philanthropic management software, today announced that the Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation (GCRCF), an Iowa-based community foundation, has selected Stellar’s iPhi Product Suite® as part of its initiative to streamline financial and operations management and enhance service to donors and partner agencies.

The Greater Cedar Rapids Community Foundation is a public charitable foundation with assets of approximately $112 million and holds more than 500 different funds established by individuals, families, nonprofit agencies and businesses to benefit Linn County, Iowa. GCRCF expects that the new system will increase organizational capacity and provide direct access to information for its constituents.

“Our mission at GCRCF is to serve donors and nonprofit organizations by connecting them to each other and to the needs of the community,” said Les Garner, Jr., President and CEO. “Part of our intent with this technology investment is to improve the efficiency of our administrative processes for our donors, funders and grantees while providing our donors, grantees and partners with the knowledge, tools and advice they need to accomplish their goals. The move to Stellar’s iPhi Product Suite® will help support our mission by providing online tools to our constituents while enhancing our capabilities in administering their funds.”

To achieve these goals, GCRCF will deploy Stellar’s iPhi CoreEnterprise®, DonorView®, GranteeView®, Board/CommitteeView® and iPhi Web Manager® solutions. The solution will include a newly designed public web site for the Foundation. The Stellar integrated solution includes donor management, an online grant application and review process, financial and investment management, workflow management, document management, online content management and self-service online portals for donors, grantees, local nonprofits, and the board of directors and committees.

“GCRCF wishes to increase organizational efficiency in all facets of its non-profit operations,” said Bryan Mileger, President and CEO of Stellar. “The implementation of the iPhi Product Suite® in combination with their mission will allow them to increase constituent services and overall organizational responsiveness while simultaneously decreasing overhead in managing a growing donor and asset base. We’re looking forward to helping GCRCF achieve these goals.”
