Introducing GDCentral, GivingData's New Community Platform

At GivingData, we understand the importance of providing not just a grants management software, but an engaging learning environment where our community can thrive. That's why we're thrilled to introduce GDCentral as a pivotal component of ensuring our clients’ continued success with the GivingData platform. 

What is GDCentral? It's a comprehensive hub where you can access resources, connect with fellow GivingData users and partners, and stay up-to-date with the latest developments. Here are some key highlights of the GDCentral launch.

All-in-One Hub: Out of the gate, GDCentral consolidates all GivingData resources into one convenient location, including community forums, our Knowledge Base, events, and important announcements.

Seamless Transition: All existing members have been imported, and resetting passwords is easy. Plus, accessing GDCentral directly from GivingData ensures a seamless experience.

Data Migration: We've successfully migrated nearly all data and attachments from our previous community, ensuring that valuable conversations and information are preserved. Our robust search functionality makes finding what you need effortless.

Continuous Enhancement: Our commitment to making GDCentral as robust as possible doesn't stop at launch. Throughout 2024, we'll be continuously refining and expanding GDCentral to ensure it remains a dynamic and valuable resource for our community.

At this stage, GDCentral is packed with features designed to facilitate learning, collaboration, and growth. Some features, like events and announcements, are open to everyone even if you’re not a GivingData client.
