Grant Connect Community Edition
Keeping you connected during COVID-19

We are ensuring small charitable organizations continue to have access to Grant Connect’s Community Edition, despite the closure of libraries and resource centres across Canada

Our Response to COVID-19: WFH Community Edition
Eligible organizations can now register for Grant Connect's Community Edition, and will have work-from-home (WFH) access until May 31. The Community Edition is typically accessed in person at licensed libraries, universities, and resource centre computers, but we're opening up access due to the recent COVID-19 closures. The service is exclusively for Canadian charities, and the length of access may be extended depending on how the situation evolves. To nonprofit organizations across Canada responding to the crisis, we want to thank you for your dedication to community and wish you good health.

What is the Community Edition?

Grant Connect’s Community Edition is always available in hundreds of libraries, universities, and resource centres across Canada. Through collaboration with these community hubs we ensure that charities of all size can gain access to Grant Connect’s fundraising research platform, which features 11,000+ Canadian foundations, 550+ corporate giving programs, and 430+ government grant programs.
How does the Community Edition differ from the regular versions?

The Community Edition provides the same high-quality data included in essential and premium plans, but without the funder management and collaboration tools. Typically, it can only be accessed in-person at licensed access points.

Features not included in the Community Edition:

  • Funder relationship management via Pipeline.
  • Monthly Funder Alert newsletter with info on new and upcoming programs.
  • Dedicated training and support from the Imagine Canada team.
  • Fundraising notes and request size tracking.
  • 24/7 access and expanded service-hour guarantees.
