Family Foundations

Why is Foundant GLM online grant management software such a good fit for Family Foundations?

Because we know how to help you do more with less. We get that you’re likely running with a lean staff of volunteers and/or a few paid staff members, and we understand that family members who make up the board often take on the responsibility of grantmaking, plus management and governance of the foundation. In short, we know that running your foundation is a big job placed on just a few people. And that’s where Foundant GLM shines.

Some of the benefits Family Foundations receive from Foundant GLM include:

  • Better collaboration because family members have online access to all granting information regardless of their geographic location
  • The ability to view the complete history of each grant request as well as organically created online summaries of each organization you've supported
  • Streamlined board meetings and even virtual board meetings with the help of 24/7 access to all grant information via the web and a single repository for all grantmaking activities

Many of our clients have discovered that Foundant GLM has helped them get "Next Gen" family members' engaged in continuing the philanthropic missions of the family foundation. Younger family members are typically comfortable with technology and excited about online grantmaking. We enjoy being part of the continuation process by helping you move policy, procedures and standards, often held in the minds of the older family members, online for the next generation of philanthropists.

Take a look at the many Family Foundations we’ve helped below. Enjoy some of their online grantmaking success stories, and when you’re ready to hear how we can make your life easier give us a call!
