Cloud-Based Grants Management Software for Non-Profits

Listing Number: 77441-564435


There are hundreds of foundations, corporations, government entities, NGOs and family offices with billions of dollars available to distribute in grants each year.

On the other side are over 1.5 million IRS-registered non-profit organizations, many of which rely on grants to further their mission and fund their roughly $2 trillion of combined annual expenses.

This business for sale creates an effective link between those two groups via a specialized cloud-based software and database that not only contains over 2,000 contacts at large and small grant-making institutions compiled over the last ten years, but also valuable historical records from dozens of successful grant recipient clients.

The advanced and expertly designed grants management services workflow platform is invaluable for anyone who makes frequent grant applications, whether as an external consultant or as an in-house development officer. Not only does it help identify which organizations might be most likely to support a specific cause in a targeted geographical area, but it also identifies who to contact, how to contact them, what documents are required and when to apply. The system safely tracks each client’s current and past submissions, helps ensure that standard grant application materials are kept up to date and easy to find, and builds out a comprehensive calendar and timeline for overall organization-wide grants management. There are also standardizes reports to show fundraising progress throughout the year.

This business has been operated as a consultancy with the owner managing clients' information and documents in a more hands-on fashion, which assures high quality of service but limits growth. However, with some additional up-front effort and expense, the core grants management software -- which is built on a CRM platform -- could be fully licensed out and used by many more clients including other grants consulting firms. With the legal structure in place to allow for broad licensing of the system and a marketing, sales and support infrastructure to grow and retain clients, this could be a truly scalable business with great potential for expansion.

This could be a perfect business for any person or organization focused on assisting non-profit institutions with fundraising via prospect research and grants management services, or for an IT / software development business with experience in the software-as-a-service (SAAS) space. If your business provides SAAS products to the non-profit sector (maybe even with application development expertise), this relocatable and low-overhead business could be a perfect fit for you.

Furthermore, this business can drive many other sources of related revenues from accounting to grant-writing and printing services.

Please note that reported revenue and SDE figures are for 2018 when owner/operator worked alone and part-time on the business. Please contact us for more information on current status.
