Back in 2006, when we first considered creating Foundant GLM, we had two primary goals. The first was to build a fully web-based (AKA cloud-based) grants management solution capable of managing a grantmaking program from the application process, to the review of applications, to preparing for an annual audit, while still allowing significant flexibility and the ability to change how our clients run their unique grants programs.The second task was to make the system easy to use and manage by people who have just a basic or even limited comfort using technology. We wanted the person who runs your grantmaking programs and best understands your needs to be the person who could manage the system.
Beyond those two original goals, we have built an organization that measures our own success through the success of our clients. Our relationship with our clients has become a partnership to make the grantmaking process easier, more efficient and more enjoyable for our clients’ applicants, reviewers, staff and administrators.
