DOCUMENT GENERATORS

Grant Advance provides four unique Document Generators to assist you in the creation of your Letter of Inquiry, Grant Proposal, Custom Documents, and your Project Budget. Each Document Generator provides step-by-step instructions for each section of your document. In the text fields, you can write your story and provide compelling reasons for supporting your campaign. With the master document complete, you can then customize individual documents for each of the funders added to your project by adding additional text, images, charts, or tables. Our Document Generators automatically insert your letterhead, signature, and the name and address of each funder. You are also able to select from drop-down options to change your salutation, select a director, and determine your ASK amount based on the average and median grant amount that each funder has typically awarded in the past. Smart Tags further help to automate and simplify the process to save you even more time. There are also helpful links that direct you to profile pages, funders websites, and grant-writing tutorials. It doesn’t get any simpler than that!

GRANT SECRETARY

Everyone needs a good secretary! Grant Advance understands this and has created an Executive Assistant to make the final stages of your application simple and seamless. With Grant Secretary, you can select your project and review, edit, export, and print all of your documents. You can also print address and return labels using our complete mail-merge system. You can also flag each funder to let you know in a glance exactly what stage you are at with each individual funder in your project. Another great feature is the ability to screen all of your funders based on previous campaigns. Want to make sure you aren’t applying to same foundation twice in a single funding cycle? Grant Secretary can discover duplicates and automatically remove them from a project.
