About GrantStation's Special Promotion
Reduced Administrative Fees
During the promotional period, a specially discounted one-year GrantStation membership will be available to eligible nonprofits, charities and public libraries for $133. These administrative fees offer a savings of $267 over TechSoup Canada's regular $400 administrative fee (retail value is $699 USD). Organizations may also renew their existing memberships with this special offer, but multiple requests can't be applied to a single membership.
This promotional discount is available on September 26th, 27th, and 28th, 2017. Make sure to come back to TechSoup Canada, starting 26, 2017 at 6 a.m. Pacific time (9 a.m. Eastern time) to place your request. This special offer will end on September 28th, 2017, at 5 p.m. Pacific (8 p.m. Eastern).
If you're new to TechSoup Canada, we encourage you to register your organization right away. You will need to complete the qualification process and provide payment within 9 business days of requesting a GrantStation membership to receive the special discount (by October 7th, 2017 at the latest).
Current GrantStation members are eligible for this promotion. A one-year membership obtained through this offer will add an additional year to an existing GrantStation membership. You can renew only one membership per request. Existing memberships obtained as a benefit from the Membership Value Program or the Premium Licensing Program cannot be extended with this offer.
About GrantStation Membership
A GrantStation membership provides online access to a comprehensive set of grant research tools for nonprofits and public libraries. These tools link organizations to current sources of grant money, help them enhance their grants strategy and teach them how to secure available funding.
You do not need to download or install special software to use these tools. There are approximately 1,000 profiles of grantmakers in the Canadian Charitable database and another 500 grantmakers that provide support globally to Canadian organizations. In addition, GrantStation's U.S. Charitable Giving database features access to hundreds of U.S. based grantmakers with an interest in supporting programs in Canada.
A GrantStation membership lasts one year and gives organizations access to:
- Searchable listings of global, national, regional, and local grantmakers — both private and government
- Step-by-step tutorials on building grant requests, writing letters of inquiry, managing grant awards, and diversifying your grants portfolio
- The GrantStation Insider, a weekly e-newsletter with the latest information on new grant programs, upcoming deadlines, online trainings, and more
- Bold Is Gold: A Funding Research Primer, an e-book from GrantStation, detailing their approach to grants research
To help determine if a GrantStation membership is the right fit for your organization, view GrantStation's online tour of their grant database with a focus on Canadian organizations. This year, GrantStation is also hosting four informative webinars, covering grantmaking strategies and the GrantStation website:
- September 20, 2017: Getting Started: Making Your Grant Requests Sparkle (90 minutes)
- September 21, 2017: Building a Grants Strategy (90 minutes)
- September 26, 2017: GrantStation Site Tour (60 minutes)
- September 27, 2017: Bold Is Gold (30 minutes)
This special offer is available to Canadian federally and provincially registered nonprofits, charities, and libraries. For full eligibility details, view our restrictions page.
Eligible libraries may request GrantStation for back-office use or other administrative purposes by library staff only. Libraries should contact GrantStation if they are interested in a program that provides access to their patrons.
