Engaging, Retaining, and Growing your base of Volunteers and Donors

Innovative Approach to Administering Scholarships and Grants

Award and Administer Grants with use and price efficiency

About GivaGrant

Cheaper. Faster. Better.

After examining the market landscape for scholarships and grants software and tools, we found them to be expensive, inflexible, and not engaging for volunteers. We’ve learned the problem wasn’t capturing applicant data, but instead the user experience for those who donate their time and treasure. Simply said, the experience can be painful and surely not fun.

While GivaGrant provides a superior user experience for your applicants and program administrators, its true strength lies in the intuitive and engaging experience for volunteers and donors.

GivaGrant is a cloud-based software platform with a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) subscription model and no contracts required. It was built by a charitable foundation to solve a charity problem.



For Applicants

Provide applicants with an intuitive platform to browse available scholarships and streamline the application process. They can quickly fill in application content and easily upload required documentation.


For Reviewers

Collaborate in real-time on applicants to ensure objective and fair grading outcomes. View applicant progress.

Tenant Admins

For Tenant Admins

Create your custom scholarship programs and cycles, customize to your organization branding and view reporting by program and cycle.

Facilitate more


We were facing increased costs for our existing application platform that wasn’t easy for our volunteer judges to use, and so we had to decide – pay more or explore other options. GivaGrant gave us the opportunity to try a new product and continuously collected our input for ongoing development. We were able to onboard quickly, and it felt like a true partnership.
