Foundant Client Testimonial

"I highly recommend Foundant for grant management software and online applications. The web-based software is easy to use for both the applicants and the administrators - and the customer support from Foundant is incredible. We implemented Foundant in December 2015 for administrator use only to backfill what was previously managed manually for the first couple rounds of three new grant programs. Then in April 2016, we launched a second phase to receive applications online for the afore mentioned three, as well as five new programs. It was a big undertaking in a short amount of time, and Foundant was a big part of our success in launching all of these programs. We have had great response from applicants about the system, and the efficiencies gained in managing our grant programs have been remarkable!"

— Jessica Finney, MPH, Grant Program Manager, Central California Alliance for Health

Foundant Client Testimonial

"The thing I like to think about when I think about Foundant is the "Field of Dreams" analogy. "Build it and they will come." We had a lot of nervous qualms from the board. It took us over two years to convince our board of directors to go with an online site, and to go with Foundant. Some demonstrations that I had seen proved to me that this was how we wanted to proceed, but there was this qualm, this real hesitation. When we finally convinced them to take the leap we built it, they came! And the applicants and the board totally embraced it, and it has been so successful!"

— Cindy Wang, Idaho Humanities Council

And it did everything we needed it to."

Sometimes I feel like I’m calling them frequently and I’ve never experienced anybody thinking, “Oh, here she goes again.” Just very supportive. I feel like you’re part of their family, they’re very family focused. They work hard, but they play hard. It’s a very fun organization to be a part of. And, also the other clients that I’ve met are very supportive and willing to share. So, really, part of a family."

Foundant Client Testimonial

"We previously had chosen another competitor in 2010 and we quickly found out that was not the best match. We came to Foundant in 2011 for two reasons: the customer service is outstanding, and also the ease of use for both our applicants and for our board reviewers. This process has eliminated virtually all of our paperwork." View Client Video

"We decided to move to the online grants system because we were inundated with paper requests. We receive an average of over 5000 applications a year. We selected Foundant because the process was very intuitive for the applicant and for the administrators and evaluators. And it was robust enough to be able to handle all the applications we receive from our over 8000 animal welfare partners." View Client Video

"Foundant has made my job so much more convenient. I can review grant applications anytime, anywhere. The agencies have commented may times how much they like the Foundant software. What it has done for them is the same thing; they can work on their grant applications anytime, anywhere, but they also have cut down on how much paper they have to use." View Client Video

"Our docket got so overwhelming with paper it took two days to put together and each docket was about two inches thick. We said, “There's got to be a better way.” All of our board members now have iPads and we do everything online. Our board is from 67 years old down to 25, and they all came in and said, “I was skeptical and it's wonderful." View Client Video

"The greatest benefit that we have seen is that Foundant GLM has cut down on the amount of paper that we use and it has standardized the packets that we have to put together. We have many board members who still want to see paper, so I'm collecting ideas on how we can gently move them to the paperless world." View Client Video

"The reason that we chose Foundant after doing a little research in other, similar types of companies, is the flexibility that Foundant offered for us to be able to do our own programs, to create our own forms. And I can edit and update those forms at any time, and I liked that feature. I also like the accessibility to their database, I did not have to purchase my own server and my own data base, and have all that memory capability to worry about. They save everything, but I have accessibility to it at any time to do whatever kind of reports I want or to research any kind of history I want on the programs that we’re offering."

— Cindy Wang, Idaho Humanities Council

"We canceled our P.O. box and started the online application immediately. So they had to be on board. My love for it is that I have 10 board members; I had 5-inch packets for each board member I sent out every month. I love the whole product. There’s nothing I don’t love about it."

Foundant Client Testimonial

"The biggest thing to do, people really need to look at the different solutions – not only is there cost savings, there’s better customer service, the functionality is there, I don’t know of too many companies that you can actually sit down and talk with the president, the lead developer and actually offer your insight, post your ideas online and you can see changes come down the pipe. The cost savings are phenomenal, the service is excellent." View Client Video

"We looked at seven vendors. We actually put a book together, we still have the book at the office. We printed everything off. Between the three of us – our chairman of the board, our program director, and myself – we made a conscious decision to look at those seven options and find the best solution for us: online functionality, support, cost, fiscially responsible, and being able to use it on a Mac."
