ABBOTSFORD, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Charitable giving is suffering in our Covid-19 world; and, according to a recent report by CBC News, charities expect to raise less than half of their normal funds this year because of the pandemic (https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/health-charities-1.5651328). British Columbia-based technology company Grant Advance Solutions is launching a grant sourcing platform for non-profits, with a focus that will dramatically help charities pivot to the new fundraising realities caused by Covid-19.
Grants to non-profits in Canada are worth over 6 billion dollars a year and will become an even more important funding avenue for non-profits for years to come. The problem with grants is the time it takes to apply and secure the funding - this is the problem that Grant Advance Solutions helps solve.
The new site has been carefully designed to further improve the user-friendly interface of the software while keeping the original processes much the same. This new version is just faster, more intuitive, and has substantial updates to the “Document Generator,” Grant Advance’s signature feature. Cari Lynn Gawletz at the Grand Forks Public Library says that their small public library was able to secure their very first grant and raised $50,000 within the first 3 weeks of using the Grant Advance platform. “I cannot say enough good things about it. It's easy to use, a wealth of information, and the company provides excellent customer service.”
Guy McPherson, Co-founder and CEO of Grant Advance Solutions, stated “Our company has been delivering technology innovation to charities like the Grand Forks Library for the past 6 years; but, when Covid-19 hit Canada, we realized the solutions we provide are even more important for non-profits to capitalize on to see them through this global pandemic.” The non-profit funding deficit could close permanently many charities in Canada. “Grant funding is an important bridge for non-profits to get through this pandemic, but they need help finding and accessing those funds and our company has the passion and the technology that will help them access the much needed funding,” added Mr. McPherson.
