The Pinkerton Foundation focuses its support on community-based programs for children, youth and families in economically disadvantaged areas in New York City. They wanted an automated, comprehensive grants management solution that would address all of the foundation’s needs within a single toolset.
The Foundation, which operated with a small staff of 5, was finding it difficult to work within their MicroEdge GIFTS system. Their process was outdated with an overabundance of paper proposals and other documents, and a program that wasn’t maintained and wasn’t working the way that they needed it to. There was no central location for all of the work that needed to be done, and no easy way to find the information or resources that they needed.
The Pinkerton Foundation team was looking for a solution that would save them time and allow them to focus on processing more grants and create more change in their community. They needed a centralized solution that would consolidate and reduce rework, enable automatic payment updates, give them access to data that was readily available and easy to access, and eliminate the need for mailers. Fluxx’s Grantmaker solution streamlined their workflow and gave them the features that they were looking for. The cloud-based, easy-to-access portal provides grantees with a clear path to apply for grants and track their status and payments.
By finding a solution that works for them, The Pinkerton Foundation has been able to drastically reduce the time it takes to process grants, which has allowed them to take more time to be active in their community.
“Fluxx Grantmaker is a total game-changer. The time I spend processing a grant has been drastically reduced, not to mention the platform is intuitive and easy for our grantees to use as well.” - Yvonne Santos-Schonborg, Grants and Office Manager, The Pinkerton Foundation
