CommunitySuite can help you create and track grants, plus the system allows your Fund Advisors to request grants for approval. Grants from your funds and donations from donors can be used to fulfill (pay for) the Grants your organization approves.

Internal and External Grants can be created by staff or by a Fund Advisor online via their Donor Portal page. Internal Grants can be created from one fund to another fund. You may have an internal grant program or want to grant money from one fund to another to pay for external grant programs. 

Grants are easily processed and paid to Grantees and can be verified utilizing the GuideStar Charity Check.

The Grants page has tabs located across the top of the page as Grant Buckets

  • Request
  • Catalog
  • Import
  • New
  • GLM (available if you use other Foundant products)
  • Approval
  • Voucher
  • Paid
  • Complete

 If you choose one of these tabs you will see your grants at different stages in the system.
