Well-Supported Program Faced Challenge

More kids equal more grants
As Boys & Girls Club of Lawrence expanded its reach and programmes, grant management grew increasingly complex. The organisation transitioned from one major grantor to three, each requiring strict, specific accounting of how funds are used, and it needed a system that could report on each separately.
Unmet expectations
The club was saddled with disparate systems that didn't communicate, requiring lots of duplication of tasks. Grants were tracked in spreadsheets, staff had to manually separate matched and reimbursed funds and grantor reporting expectations were not being met.
Quick turnaround
Having once assumed it couldn't afford an integrated solution, the club was pleased when it enaged with NetSuite and its Social Impact program. Three months later, it was up and running on a system that would enable it to manage its growing complexity.
Stronger donor connections on tap
While Boys & Girls Club of Kansas has barely scratched the surface of NetSuite's capabilities, the real benefit of the software is that it will enable donor relations staff to spend more time on in-person interactions and less on technical issues.
