"The Football Association has been using GRANTfinder software
for over seven years in supporting clubs and other parties develop funding
bids. During this time, we have been very pleased with the software and
indeed, the service and support offered on several occasions used training
services from GRANTfinder and again, these have always been delivered
successfully. There is no doubt that the software offers excellent value
for money in terms of cost versus grant secured through the use of the
system. One of the most important features of the system is that the user
will always be sure of being able to access the very latest information
relating to any specific grant stream and also, more latterly, policy

an accurate and up-to-date database of domestic and European funding streams."
