CASE STUDY: What’s the Difference Between Grant Management Software and Community Impact Management Software?

PRESS RELEASE: Salisbury, MD – United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore selects e-CImpact as their community impact management software.

United Ways across the country are shifting to community impact to improve education, income and health.

Many are turning to technology as a tool to help them strategically invest resources that make the most impact, but with so many software options to consider how do they know which one is right?

United Way of the Lower Eastern Shore spent several months evaluating different software solutions based on price, experience with United Ways, customer service and technical capabilities. They needed a system with a proven performance track record and ability to evolve with them.

Grant management software is not the same as community impact software.

“Grant management is a component of community impact, but they aren’t the same thing. Some systems were built on a one-time application platform that assumes a start and end date, which didn’t work for us. We’re building relationships with community partners to address complex social issues over time. We needed a system that could support our community impact strategies and be flexible enough to grow with us. e-CImpact was designed to do just that!

Plus, our community volunteers LOVE using the system to evaluate applications. It was simple and easy for them to use.”
