Grantors are those foundations, organizations, or donors that provide grants to your organization. You must have the constituent listed as a Grantor in order to receive grants from them. To add a Grantor to your database they first need to be a constituent in your database. For help adding a constituent to your database please refer to KB Article - Add Constituents
. To designate a constituent as a Grantor, select from the main menu on the left hand side Constituents (CRM) > Grantors or Donations and Grants > Grantors.
This will open the Grantors screen that will list all the grantors you have in your organization. From here you will select "Add New."
This will open the Add A New Grantor by Designating A Constituent As A Grantor screen.
From here you will select the "Lookup" button next to Constituent ID to search for and select the constituent that you are now designating as a Grantor. If your constituent is not in the database you may select "Add New" to add them. This is a required field.
Select the grantor type from the Grantor Type drop down menu. If the type is not listed you may add a new one by selecting "Add New." This is not a required field.
