Learn About the Common Grant Application - Grantmaker Usage

As a grantmaker, you open an account and provide information about your organization and its grantmaking interests. Applicants perform research on your organization and if they think there is a match and it meets your basic funding criteria they submit an application to your grantmaking organization.

You can control the privacy and sharing of your information. The applications applicants submit to you can only be seen by you and the applicant.

Managing Filters

You can manage when, from who and what types of applications you receive.

Save time. Don't spend time looking at applications that aren't aligned with your funding interests and activities.

  • Configure your grant cycle dates. The dates control when applications may or may not be submitted.
  • Configure whether you accept solicited and/or unsolicited applications. Solicited applications can only be submitted with a corresponding invitation issued by the grantmaker. If the applicant doesn't have an invitation, the application can't be submitted. Unsolicited applications can be submitted without an invitation.
  • Describe and configure your organizations background and funding interests. Applicants can review, sort and filter this information to focus on submitting applications to those grantmakers that might be interested in funding their programs.

Managing Application Questions

Save time. The information and documents provided by the applicant is saved, and can be re-used for multiple applications.
