This is the best tool for finding & organizing grants that are a fit for our non-profit. I used to hire someone to do research but now I can do it on my own with Instrumentl AND Instrumentl automatically reminds me of deadlines.”

Pamela Weese

“I'm a grant writer for a few different nonprofits and I've used FDO, FoundationSearch, GrantStation - Instrumentl is my favorite. Instrumentl is well-designed and easy to use. I can easily organize multiple prospect lists and I love being able to quickly save prospects + store my notes”

Julie Sweitzer

“I recommend Instrumentl all the time because Instrumentl proactively finds grants that you should be pursuing. This saves me time and my clients $$. The best part: Instrumentl has recommended funders not on my radar AND some have resulted in new funding opportunities!”

We’ve been there and know the way forward…

...and that your time is better spent fighting for your cause than figuring out cash flow. We were founded by nonprofit fundraisers who saw our peers wasting valuable time, struggling to find and track grants that were right for their organizations. So we created the most comprehensive source of grant and funder data, and designed a platform to take the pain out of grants. We make the grants process easier and more efficient, so you can do what you do best: make a positive impact.
