The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust uses Good Grants to manage its COVID-19 emergency grants application process
The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust (QCT) champions, funds and connects young leaders who are working hard to change the world. It represents a growing network of young changemakers across the Commonwealth.
A platform where smart ideas and insights are shared, to show that change can be brought about by anyone, anywhere, and with a vision of a world where young people are equal partners in driving change.
About the grant program
QCT recently launched an emergency grants program to support small organisations delivering vital services during COVID-19. “We know that young leaders all over the world will struggle to access funding at a time when the services they provide are needed more than ever,” they state.
This program was designed to support the people and communities too often left behind or forgotten in times of crisis.
Program challenges before Good Grants
Before coming to Good Grants, QCT managed its grants programs manually over email.
“We had difficulties with keeping information offline, filing, and admin requirements,” said Victoria Napier, Grants and Business Support Executive at QCT.
The Good Grants choice
The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust looked into the features and functionality of Good Grants before signing up and felt confident that it met all their organisational needs:
“We felt that Good Grants represented good value for money, and we liked the functionality, round-the-clock customer service and trial period. We also appreciated the in-depth demo we had with the Good Grants team,” Napier said.
