"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"
