Coordinated Assistance Network (CAN)
In-kind grants of software licenses to USA and territories nonprofit organizations, government agencies, educational institutions to improve operations. Applicants are required to submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full proposal. The grant is intended to provide technology that produces transformational resources for nonprofit infrastructure, efforts to scale, and implementation support. Organizations that are looking to demonstrate a magnitude of return on cloud technology should apply for this grant. The Coordinated Assistance Network’s (CAN) “Momentum to Modernize” opportunity will offer “Black Level” licenses, focusing on Minority Led Organizations (MLO’s), providing transformational cloud-based technology.
As nonprofits seek to enhance their core mission operations with technology, organizations are requiring more and more funding for foundational technology enhancements, such as managing their own records, documents, client files, migrating data to the cloud, and modernizing new and existing applications. The CAN is a cloud-based platform, and nothing is required to download onto computers or devices. Users may log in from anywhere.
Momentum to Modernize is a “think big” grant, where highly innovative projects can leverage the CAN as a complete back-office cloud solution. Grant recipients will have the potential to produce scaled, repeatable solutions that may impact an entire industry or field. The grant will also be a force multiplier for established collaboratives on any level and will include unlimited database storage for ambitious communities. There is absolutely no cost to the recipients of this grant, and nothing is for sale.
On the CAN, smaller organizations are empowered with capacity and become difference-makers, and larger organizations find better system uses, and each has the ability to scale and deliver worthwhile programs. The Momentum to Modernize grant will assist organizations to lower overhead, develop new programs quickly, and deliver reliable and available services to beneficiaries. The CAN is looking for nonprofit organizations that recognize that these IT projects and requirements are drivers of organizational change. The goal of the grant is to provide vital technology that is lacking in the sector.
Momentum to Modernize awards may fund the following types of non-profits and projects:
