ISEF sought an all-in-one platform to bridge the gap between fundraising and grantmaking. As a re-granting organization, ISEF needed a platform where they could simply track grant applications, awards, and disbursements alongside the funds that they raised to support those grants.
ISEF works with grantees in various countries with multiple currencies and was unable to track changing exchange rates easily.
Tracking grant applications, reporting deadlines, and disbursement schedules were done in Excel, which caused inefficient data collection and management.
Grantees were unable to submit or track their applications online.
Fíonta worked with the ISEF team to implement a series of customized versions of Salesforce Grants Management tool, a grantee portal, and Award Letter document merge functionality alongside standard Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) fundraising.
In order to generate accurate award letters and information about grants, budgets, and disbursement, Conga Composer and Conga Sign was implemented.
Fíonta built filterable dashboards so that ISEF staff can, at a glance, get an extensive picture summary of all of their fundraising and grantmaking activities.
The new grantmaking portal enabled ISEF to offer online application submission, share grant status, submit quarterly reports, and send due diligence documents and requirements. Additionally, we set up automatic email deadline reminders and progress updates to grantees to streamline the notification process and reduce manual outreach.
Since the implementation of the new system, the team has been able to establish and maintain communication with partners at an earlier stage in the grant application process, while also keeping track of all correspondences. This has enabled ISEF to gain a deeper understanding of the grantors and grantees, and provide comprehensive support throughout the application process. Moreover, the system has proven to be incredibly user-friendly, making it accessible to everyone involved.
