SmartyGrants Pricing

SmartyGrants users pay an annual fee based on each organisation's annual grants / awards / scholarships distribution, allowing you to lock in your budget allocations with certainty.

We do not charge set-up costs. If your organisation is uncomplicated and distributes less than $25 million a year, your annual fee will be as described below.

Large organisations with multiple departments and/or which distribute more than $25 million a year in grants, and/or the equivalent in scholarships/awards, should contact us for a tailored quote.
