We knew there was a better way!
After 27 years managing grants and contracts the “old-fashioned way”, Quanah Stamps decided to act on her vision to eliminate the headaches, complexities, and inefficiencies associated with managing grant-funded projects.
To bring this vision into reality, Quanah partnered with Pam James, an expert in grants and community development and Brion Bonkowski, a veteran in the technology and nonprofit worlds with a keen understanding of both systems and strategic partnerships. In an effort to standardize best practices and provide a tool users could easily adopt, GrantVantage engaged Microsoft and the Dynamics CRM team to evaluate the Dynamics platform as a foundation for a commercial off-the-shelf grant management tool. After a year of interviewing Microsoft Dynamics CRM architects our team finally found Gordon Darling. Gordon is a seasoned solution architect with a firm foundation in Microsoft Dynamics CRM and has a notable reputation of building business software solutions.
After more than a year in development, GrantVantage officially launched in May 2013 as the best practice solution for grant project management.
GrantVantage is the first cloud-based solution of its kind to address the entire grant life-cycle needs of governments, Tribes, foundations, intermediaries, educational institutions, and nonprofit organizations.
