How do I mark funding in the portal?

To mark grant recommendations, click into the application that you would like to fund and follow the steps below. Note: Organizations will be able to see commitments marked on their application and organization profile.

  1. Click the FUND button on the proposal or organization profile and complete the pop up box accordingly:
    1. Select ADD NEW FUNDING
      1. If you are marking funding on behalf of a grant cycle, select GRANT CYCLE, choose the grant cycle name and populate relevant fields.
      2. If you are marking funding on behalf of your fund, select the Fund Name and populate relevant fields.
    2. Indicate the GRANT TYPE (general operating grant, program or project support grant, or other)
      1. When selecting the "GRANT TYPE", please keep the following in mind:
        1. A GENERAL OPERATING GRANT is unrestricted and supports an organization's overall activities. These include but are not limited to operating expenses and overhead.
        2. A PROJECT or PROGRAM SUPPORT GRANT grant is restricted funding that typically supports a very specific project or activity of the organization. These grants are usually tied to specific project-based outcomes. Please note that all grants to fiscally sponsored projects must be entered as PROJECT or PROGRAM SUPPORT GRANTS.
        3. If the organization is fiscally sponsored, please select "Program or Project Support.
      2. You can add a comment in the COMMENT box indicating any special note about that funding.
  2. Repeat this process for each grant you mark. Feel free to leave a comment to share why you are funding the organization. This comment will be visible to the organization and other JustFunders. 
  3. If you marked funding incorrectly, to edit, you will need to visit your DASHBOARD, click on FUNDING and then click on the proposal you previously marked funding for. Click FUND and under COMMITMENT ACTIONS choose the corresponding cycle and edit and click SAVE.
