Strategic Grants is the unique provider of grant strategies and Grants Expertise Management Systems (GEMS) in New Zealand. We work with community organisations to build capacity to be ready to apply and able to win grants, through research, planning, project matching, policy and process development, writing and training.

Our Grants Expertise Management Systems, GEM Portal for large charities and GEM Local for small community organisations, save hundreds of hours of research, providing a customised calendar of grant opportunities matched to your legal eligibility, what you do, and where you do it.

The GEM systems can be used to record application data, ensuring good record keeping, and to alert your organisation of upcoming deadlines and report due dates. Our grants database is kept constantly up to date by our team of specialist grants researchers who are making updates daily.

As a business driven by a mission to help nonprofit, community organisations to establish sustainable, cost-effective grant-seeking strategies, Strategic Grants is providing discounts for GEMS to the Techsoup community.

Strategic Grants also provides Grant-Seeker Workshops and online training that covers the strategies and processes required for effective grant-seeking, whatever the size of your organisation, as well as organisation-specific Grants Program Review Workshops, board education sessions, and grant writing and application critiquing services.
