TESTIMONIALS & CASE STUDIES

Brilliant approach and engaging sessions. Amazing to see the immense amount of work you did in researching our organization before the sessions began, and then again between sessions in analyzing the information provided by all our staff members. Very beneficial that you have provided us with charts and summaries of what we have shared.THANK YOU!

Innoweave Coaching Workshop Participant

This new approach to getting work done is exciting and has lots of potential to improve our collaboration and effectiveness. We will be experimenting with more online software moving forward.

Erin Kasungu - Community Foundations of Canada

This session was really excellent. The whole staff was clearly very engaged, and excited about moving forward with this project. The SpiderGraph was a really great exercise. In general, I think the whole session gave the staff confidence in the process and where it will take us.

Kick Off Session Participant

Zoe is a total pleasure to work with. I was impressed at the accuracy of the workflow charts she built from our last session, and her ability to collect info while she facilitated. The session was simple in design, but made space to address everything that came up in it's process.

Digital Documentation Session

You came into the session extremely well prepared and informed, and I appreciate your holistic approach to the project, looking beyond just grants and at our systems architecture in general.

THE GRANTBOOK PROMISE

TECHNOLOGY AGNOSTIC

GrantBook ensures you are not locked into a predefined set of tools. The tools we recommend are selected because they rank favourable in our ongoing assessment of the technology landscape.

INTEGRATED SOLUTIONS

We know that getting stand alone systems to integrate with one another can be time consuming or in some cases impossible. GrantBook recommends a comprehensive set of tools that work seamlessly together and anticipates the needs of your applicants, grantees, staff, board members, and partners.

DIGITALLY ENABLED

Our offering focuses on the unique systems and digital competencies needed to thrive in a digital world. Our digital first orientation means you can hone your organization’s business processes and develop your team’s skills without investing in systems that are likely to become obsolete.

GrantBook has been fortunate to work with many grantmakers from across North America:
