We worked side by side with a local community foundation to build CommunitySuite. It was designed from the ground up as a web based fund accounting system dedicated to the unique needs of community foundations.
This software is really superb at fund accounting. It’s truly integrated, easy to learn and it reduced the amount of time that I had to spend monthly by at least 20%. It far out classes any fund accounting software that I ever used before.

CommunitySuite gives us the time and confidence to know we’re doing the right thing with our funds, giving our board the right information, and helping donors understand and access their grant making capability in a really easy way. We’ve been able to quadruple our activity, and we’ve kept to our 2 FTE staff which is pretty remarkable.

You and your donors will always have the most current information because the data in the donor portal is directly connected to your accounting system online, in a cloud environment for anytime, anywhere access.
With Foundant’s online portal, individuals can easily give either to a fund at the foundation or to specific projects nonprofits are running within the community. Those smaller donations can really add up over time.
We were able to quickly set up an online donation page in response to wildfire destruction. The community-based funds were able to accept donations of over $2.3 million to support recovery for the individuals and communities affected.

Foundant has made my job so much more convenient. I can review grant applications anytime, anywhere. And the agencies have commented many times how much they like the software. They’ve cut down on paper and the time consuming task of making copies.

Foundant has been providing community foundations with online grants management for over 10 years. Our clients appreciate the CommunityGrants solution for its unique combination of ease of use, reliability and power.
As another Foundant flagship solution, CommunityScholarships has been put through the paces in community foundations for over 10 years. The online application, review, and decision process integrated into your accounting system can significantly cut time.
When we first implemented Foundant I was at least 40% more productive. Now with the additional upgrades and export capabilities, I am looking at saving at least 60% of my time with scholarship administration. Anyone who administers scholarships understands how huge this is.

The events management tools have helped us track our RSVPs and income and expenses for specific events, which has been very useful. We didn’t have anything like that before CommunitySuite. It has streamlined all of our processes.

Let us help you streamline the systems side of events management with simple registration, payment, and accounting. CommunitySuite even tracks attendees by each unique event making it easier to build future invite lists.
You’ll be glad to hear this is not one of those overly cumbersome, confusing CRM systems. Because this solution was designed just for community foundations you won’t run into the problems you might have found trying to retrofit another CRM for your needs.
As the Executive Director I am relieved that we now use such an accessible, flexible system with so much capacity. Now we have room to grow. Our repeat donors especially like the fund reports, because they can see the impacts of their donations over time.
