What are users saying?

“Using GEM Local has been a dream. After spending hours trying to collect our own research…only for our data to become out of date within a week – we made the jump and invested in GEM Local. The best part is that the service has found hundreds of grants we had not come across AND the service constantly updates and refreshes itself, so our information is always up to date. Would highly recommend this product – now I can get back to actual work!”

Happy GEM Local user

“Auckland Council’s bulk subscription to GEMS has been incredibly valuable for our local community groups. Organisations aren’t just successfully securing funds through grants; they’re also learning industry best practices and are setting themselves up for future fundraising success through grant-seeking. We’re very happy with our partnership with Strategic Grants.”

“I just wanted to say, WOW! Thank you for such a great platform. I have already applied for three grants so far, this is amazing and so incredibly helpful! Really looking forward to continuing using your service.”

“It is going really really well; the grant alerts have been good; it has been particularly useful for tracking our accountability reports and when they are due.”

“GEM Local has been an invaluable tool to Bowel Cancer Foundation Trust. Being a small charity, we don’t have the resources to hire people to find all the information required to apply for grants. We have already received a large amount of funding to date to enable us to reach our goals for 2017 and with just me applying for grants on the weekends! I would highly recommend this service”
