March was a busy month of firsts. The first signs of spring, our first major conference of the season, the opening of our brand new US office, and a new integration added to our Marketplace. Yet with all of that, we still prioritized the importance of celebrating International Women's Day.

If March came in like a lamb, it certainly went out like a lion.

 

We've moved! SmartSimple US gets a new address

On March 1st, we officially moved our US offices to Grand Rapids, Michigan. The move doesn't affect or change our support and service to our US-based clients, but please be sure to update your records with our new address:

38 W. Fulton Street, Suite 301
Grand Rapids, MI
49503 USA

Our contact information remains the same, and you'll still be able to reach us toll free at 1.866.239.0991 or by email at info@smartsimple.com with any questions or support needs.

 

Celebrating International Women's Day

March 8 marked International Women's Day (IWD), and while it's always been an important day for us, this year marked our biggest celebration of IWD. We had activities planned and run by a number of employees that included an IWD-themed company-wide huddle, a special curated Spotify playlist, and participation at a special IWD event in Dublin, Ireland.

This year's support of IWD also included donations to a number of related causes including the Women's First International Fund.

For our next Ask the Expert session, we're going to be talking about some of SmartSimple Cloud's best-kept secrets. With so many features in the platform, there are some valuable features that often get overlooked. In this session, we'll be placing the spotlight on these features.

Marketplace Corner - Introducing the Impact Genome Project® (IGP) Integration

Marketplace Corner image

This month, we added a new integration to our Marketplace with the IGP's impact registry. SmartSimple is the first grants management system to integrate with the IGP.

The IGP's impact registry is a repository that makes due diligence more efficient, important for effectively implementing trust-based grantmaking strategies.

SmartSimple Cloud's integration with the impact registry also streamlines the way you work while also reducing the administrative burden for nonprofits through common grant applications.
