With Submittable's budget tracking tool, you can record and track your organization's fund distribution to applicants. Everything about the Funds tool is designed to make the process of awarding and distributing funds easy and transparent. You can verify the dollar amount available in a specific fund or check the giving capacity of the whole organization.
Funds is the perfect tool for:
- Grant organizations tracking awards and payments to their grantees
- Academic institutions tracking scholarships and fellowships
- Companies managing corporate giving programs
- Contests awarding cash prizes
- Incubators and accelerators funding entrepreneurial programs
- Organizations ensuring adherence to campaign budgets
Funds is a paid feature you can add to your account by contacting our account management team here. They’ll be able to answer any questions you may have and give you tips and ideas about how Funds can improve your process.
