How to Improve your Grantmaking with Grant Management Software: A Grantee-Focused Approach

Evolved funders are focused on building a grantmaking process that embodies their values. Join Sam Caplan, VP of Social Impact at Submittable, for a discussion of the next generation of grants management software. Sam will walk you through the three essential themes of a grantee-focused approach:

  • Trust-based
  • Streamlined
  • Equitable

Then, the Submittable team will walk you through how to take action on these values. Join Keriann Strickland, VP of Product Marketing, and Natalya DeRobertis-Theye, Product Marketing Manager, as they demonstrate how you can use technology to better embody these principles in your program, from start to finish, including the best features to:

  • Facilitate transparency and center people
  • Eliminate tedious tasks for both your team and your applicants
  • Empower applicants, facilitate objective reviews, and deliver insights

You'll leave equipped with an action plan to improve your current process - or identify a new grant management software that will empower you to meet your goals. Join us!
