New! Integrate OpenWater with Guidestar for Smoother Grant Management

New! Integrate OpenWater with Guidestar for Smoother Grant Management

Have you heard about our new integration with Guidestar?

Grant applicants often cite spending hours upon hours of filling out the same form fields on different grant application as their biggest source of wasted time. By integrating with the biggest information marketplace on the internet for nonprofits, grant applicants can now fill out applications faster and more accurately.

 

How does OpenWater Integrate with Guidestar?

Guidestar is the largest information marketplace in the world for nonprofits who want to maintain their information in one, easy-to-access, centralized location. The way we work with GuideStar is by partnering with them to enable a functionality that would make the grant application process worlds more efficient. Through this integration, nonprofits can now populate multiple grant application forms using the data from their GuideStar profile, eliminating time wasted repetitively entering redundant fields of information.

 

Guidestar adding value for both Applicants and Foundations

By offering applicants the option to automatically populate submission fields, not only are grantmakers saving time and resources for the grantees themselves, it allows them to attract applicants who are more qualified, improve the accuracy of information received and overall streamline the application process.

 

So remind me how it works again?

OpenWater’s integration with Guidestar allows applicants to bring their data in from the GuideStar API into their OpenWater application profile. Because nonprofits end up spending much of their time completing the same question fields on multiple grant applications over and over again, Guidestar expedites that process by creating a faster application experience, without taking away from any of the accuracy or consistency of the applications.

 

To sum it up…

Using Guidestar for Grant Applications makes the grant application process so much more efficient for foundations who frequently work with nonprofits that have limited time and resources to complete their applications.
