Guide to Organising Your Grant Applications in Airtable

Applying for grants is time consuming. Being organised is the key which is where Airtable comes in.

This is a fantastic comprehensive guide to grant management covering the benefits you'll get from having a system through to all the functionality you can implement. It's a great resource for ideas especially if you're considering customising an Airtable template to create your own system.

Keys to Succeeding in Grant Management

A grant management system streamlines the grant process by helping you identify prospective funders, track the success of proposals, monitor the progress of each grant, and gather the information you need for each report. By developing a system to identify all the requirements and responsibilities, you’ll save time and money in the long run.


You don't need to start from scratch if you use Airtable to manage your grant applications. Start with a template and then customise it to suit your processes. You end up getting exactly what you want and you have the flexibility of changing and expanding as your needs change.
