In 2009 GivingData developed software that takes the dataset from Microedge GIFTS and visualizes it, providing better decision-making tools for the grants approval and budgeting processes, and aligning business processes.

We Give GIFTS Business Intelligence.

With GIFTS, you’re sitting on top of a goldmine of well-structured and organized data about your grantees and the grants made to them. GivingData makes that data visual and actionable helping you make better plans and decisions.

According to Gartner, Business Intelligence (BI) is an umbrella term referring to the tools and best practices that enable access to and analysis of information, to improve and optimize decisions and performance. With GivingData’s BI tools for GIFTS we empower consumers of grants data to work more strategically with that data.

Ready to Migrate from GIFTS to a Next Generation Grants Management System?

We’ve worked with several foundations to help them preserve their GIFTS grants data as we migrate them to the GivingData Grants Management System. Our work with Conrad N. Hilton Foundation provides a good case study for the combination of software and strategy we apply to transform a foundation’s grantmaking.
