Community Grants

Manage your Community Grants Programme

On plinth's Community Impact Platform you'll find all the tools you need to make it as easy as possible to manage and maximise the reach of your community grants programme.


Easy to use application forms

Design your own forms to ask the questions you need in order to assess your grants.

Easy for applicants to complete - automatically translation, save for later and they can even be exported to a google doc for easier collaboration.

Once people have applied the forms can be allocated to different reviewers to save on the admin headaches.

1. Organisation vision/mission statement*

In no more than 50 words, please outline your organisation's vision/mission (for example: what does your organisation do and what does it aim to achieve in its work?).

To deliver community impact at scale

2. Main contact phone number*

We may call you to clarify any details in your application.


3. Who will benefit from your work or activity?*

Technology can be used to connect people access services, and to help charities and community groups operate more effectively.

Automatic Reporting

During the programme, get automated reports to know the impact of your programme.

Plus more complicated custom reports, so you can quickly generate reports to share internally and externally with people who are interested in the programme.

All these are available for both you and your grantees.

See it in action

Here are some examples of how we've helped other organisations.

We can make your life easier too.

We don't stop at the application form.

Manage your grants

Improve your assessment process

We give you a number of different ways to review your submitted application forms. You can use them to assess individual grants or review the sucess of the whole application process.

Assessment Link

Create a read-only link for grant assessors for each application form. It shows the answers exactly as the organisations inputted them, so it doesn't break any formatting.

Spreadsheet View

View a spreadsheet of all the applications, filtered by the time when you received them. Look through them on plinth or export directly into Excel or Google Sheets.

Gallery View

See a gallery of pictures and videos from your applications. Scroll through to get a real emotional sense of what organisations are doing in your local area.

Graph View

Get a break down of all your responses in a series of easy-to-understand pie charts. Find out the most common answers and see how they compare to what you expected.

Ongoing monitoring

Move seamlessly to monitoring and reporting

Once you decide on a grant, you can use plinth to report on outcomes, case studies and activities. See all the impact your grant is having all in real-time.


See what activities the organisations you fund are organising, see where and when they are happening, and share a public page for people to book on directly (if appropriate).


Get live KPI data on the outcomes organisations are achieving in their community. Configure the KPI so it integrates directly with their own system, so need for irritating Excel reports.

Case Studies

Ask for case studies from organisations that have been funded. View these case studies in a gallery, perfect for your more visual board members, or export them into a Spreadsheet for the nerds.


See anonymised summary statistics on the beneficiaries of the programmes you fund. Break them down by location, age, gender, ethnicity and any other key characteristic you need to collect.

Why is this important?

We did some analysis and found that 46% of grants cost more than they are worth - that's why.
