The scholarships are a really nice feature because it’s easy to look at the historical data for each scholarship, but then also once the grantee, the school, is in there it just makes the processing on the scholarships that much easier. We can easily schedule the payment if they need to go out later in the fiscal year.Shaine Schramling, Funds and Grants Administrator, Kitsap Community Foundation
