Developing Your Fundraising Strategy Training: Brilliant session!! Loved it, learned loads, really helpful. Wish all workshops were this good and informative.

Rosemary Clyde, Riding for the Disabled Coleraine

Grant Tracker is easy to understand and use with intuitive design features.

Kevin McKeaveney, Bryansford Village Committee

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.

Wendy Elliott, National Trust

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.

Deborah Dagan, NI Chest Heart & Stroke

The Applying to Grant-makers training was excellent, informative and insightful and will certainly help me make the application process more efficient.

James Green, St Columb's College

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.
