WordPress Portfolio: Grant Soup

Grant Soup: Grant Funding Strategy and Grant Lifecycle Management Tool from Yoga Wellspring, LLC

During the pandemic, I responded to the need in my community by focusing on grant writing. However, that didn’t stop me from geeking out with WordPress!

When I got fed up with the messy spreadsheets nonprofits call their “grant research,” I did what I always do and hacked my WordPress Website. Grant writing is very competitive. Grant Soup is a plugin for WordPress that helps me prioritize grant funding opportunities to position my clients’ applications for the best chance of success. That may sound obvious, but most nonprofits only apply to foundations where they know someone, or worse, they prioritize by deadlines. Creating Grant Soup enabled me to help several community-based nonprofits win over $4.5million in grant awards in under 3 years.

I took a sabbatical in 2023 and am working on reinstating Grant Soup for my own grant writing. I aspire to making it a free tool for everyone, at some point.
