  • Do you have an import utility in GrantHub to upload Funders and past grant information?

    GrantHub's import feature is not available for customers to access directly. Instead, we ask that you send us a spreadsheet containing a list of your funders and, if applicable, your grant history. Just contact us at and we will work with you to make sure you have all the information you will need and that it is in the right format. Once your spreadsheet is in the right format, we will import the information into the correct GrantHub fields for you. This will save you the time of entering them by hand.

    Our import/upload service is provided at no additional charge, but we ask that you work with us to help get the information into the right format for uploading.
