DREAM BIG GRANT
What is A “Dream Big” Technology Grant?
Nonprofit staff, boards and volunteer advisors often brainstorm great ideas but lack the resources to follow through with them because they are so overwhelmed with day-to-day mission delivery and existing SOPs. What if there was a better, simpler way available by applying the latest technology to your nonprofit’s operation to alleviate non-client supporting duties?
The Dream Big technology grant is designed to apply great ideas and successful practices regularly used by businesses to make strides in their markets and creatively apply them to nonprofit organizations to help them with their missions and better serve their “customers” at shelters, food pantries, career centers, after-school programs and more. Could you do more client-facing service if you saved time absorbed by manual administrative processes? Could you use systems and technology to improve client tracking and outcome measurements, donor management, and “talking” to each other about how to better serve your communities?
This is one of the few grant opportunities focus on nonprofits getting and using software technologies (plus IT hours) to help fulfill their missions. Last year several transformational projects were awarded between $8,000 and $24,000– and it all starts by completing the online grant application.
