Giveffect Software Grant Program

Giveffect's Grant Program offers three cycles annually in order to provide more nonprofits with the opportunity to utilize our software and service. The application for each cycle is open after the previous one closes.

We offer software grants to eligible nonprofit organizations to help accelerate digital transformation and realize significant gains in fundraising and community building through donor & volunteer management, productivity, and cost-efficiency.

Grantees will benefit from a one-year subscription to our all-in-one CRM solution, including online giving, donor management, volunteer management, email marketing, and events & fundraising management. In addition, we will look for how organizations will use software to better address their mission, build or foster growth within a community, and provide additional services to their constituents.

Together, we will create a positive and measurable impact in communities across the United States and Canada.
