Meet our customers

” As a Foundation, we are very satisfied with the CommunityForce solution to our scholarship management needs. We have been using it for five (5) years and find it to be user-friendly and easy to set things up on our own. The system is so robust, we are not sure we are using all of the functionality. “

” We originally had a paper process and in 2014 we chose CommunityForce Scholarship Management as the tool to help us manage our fellowship applications as well as our refresher grants.  CommunityForce has really streamlined the application process and eliminated the use of packets and binders to manage the hundreds of applications we get each cycle. “

” We are very satisfied with the CommunityForce Scholarship Management platform and over the past five (5) years have been able to grow our scholarship applicants from a mere 25 to well over 1,000 this year. We were looking for a platform that we could grow with and are very happy with our choice. “

” At the top of the list is the support we receive from CommunityForce. Kudos to our support agents – they respond quickly and provide answers that teach us how to do, instead of just providing a fix. I appreciate all the videos offered – especially for the new upgrade. We really like the new navigation, it’s even more intuitive than before. “
