Last night, WizeHive was fortunate to attend a unique dinner sponsored by GuideStar and TAG on Coronado Island in San Diego.
The topic? Simplify, a new way to streamline the application process for Grant Seekers.
What was unique about the dinner? WizeHive was joined by all the leading Grant Management Software providers exhibiting at the GMN conference. There aren’t many industries where competing service providers are willing to sit down and talk about how to collectively improve the market, but that’s exactly what happened last night. We felt honored to be sitting among a group of individuals so clearly committed to coming together to streamline the grant making process.
Why is Simplify important to the Grant Making Community? In the very near future, when a nonprofit applies for a grant using software from one of the aforementioned vendors, the applicant will be able to enter their EIN and have that application pre-populate from data stored in a Common GuideStar database. This integration will save grant seekers a tremendous amount of time and enable them to apply for more grants to help more people!
