Developing Your Fundraising Strategy Training: Brilliant session!! Loved it, learned loads, really helpful. Wish all workshops were this good and informative.
Grant Tracker is easy to understand and use with intuitive design features.
I have used Grant Tracker for a number of years and find it to be a very user friendly system. Relevant sources of information are easily accessed.The recent improvements are great, making life simpler to receive automatic updates and reminders.
I find GrantTracker to be an excellent tool for our Charity. It allows me to filter down my search for the area of funding that I need, whilst the star rating system saves me so much time on research. There's a great selection of Trusts to research.
The Applying to Grant-makers training was excellent, informative and insightful and will certainly help me make the application process more efficient.
GrantTracker is a vital tool for our fundraising efforts. The clear and concise way funding is presented allows our organisation to accurately and effectively target funding.
