I didn't know what category to put this in so I thought a testimonial might be best.
I want to publicly thank the Foundant Help/Support team, engineers, software people, whomever was involved in resolving the reporting issue on Thursday, May 19.
Nebraska was in the middle of a live panel review process when the system stopped showing scores and reports. I made one call to support, one chat and it was fixed before the panel ended. We only had to rescore for one grant and no issues on our final tally.
I am amazed at how fast the Foundant team addressed the issue, how professional (AND CALM when I wasn't) they were with my frantic "We are live and they are voting and using the system now".
You guys are amazing and deserve a public shout out. Thank you again!
We are bringing back our scholarship event this summer after a two year hiatus. In the past we have called each recipient up to the front and handed them a certificate, similar to a graduation. This year, we are hoping to make it less formal and more fun, providing time for the students, donors, and committee members to meet and mingle.
Anyone have ideas for activities/ice breakers to facilitate engagement between donors and recipients? We are planning for about 40 minutes of open time and want to prompt meaningful discussion with attendees.
Thank you in advance!
Anyone care to share their congratulations letter? I'm looking for some not just basic ways to say what we have to say.
Also, when you award a scholarship, do you send an email or paper letter? We're first timers using SLM this year.
Hi! I'm new to Foundant and new to the funder side of the non-profit world. I work for several foundations which fund around the country/globe and which have board members scattered about. We are investigating doing virtual site visits.
Does anyone have experience with Virtual Site Visits? What worked? What didn't? Any pitfalls to avoid?
On a separate but related note, has anyone used GLM for site visit evaluations? I think I have it figured out but would be interested in hearing if anyone else has done this.
