GrantBook is a social purpose business specializing in the procurement and implementation of cloud-based tools that help grantmakers and their networks to maintain a more social and technology-enabled workplace.

The team curates lightweight and continuously updated technology solutions to advance collaboration, grants management, and knowledge-sharing. Because GrantBook has social-enterprise and philanthropic sector knowledge and works exclusively with tools that are deployed in this sector, they are able to optimize grantmaking and fundraising processes through time-saving solutions that help direct greater resources with fewer pains to the social sector.
