GrantHub has changed the way we create new proposals. Now my entire team can easily find and copy our best responses without spending hours of time searching through past grant proposals, which is fantastic!

We are a small team, and this has helped me immensely, simply because I can get through a lot of things a lot quicker. I can touch a lot of areas of the grant application and evaluation process with our committees and with our grantees and strengthen the relationships all the way around - because I’m not sifting through a mountain of paperwork.
