OpenGrants vs. Instrumentl
What’s the difference?
What’s the difference between OpenGrants and Instrumentl?
Instrumentl helps established nonprofits with dedicated development staff find grants, gather data about funders, and track and manage their applications. It’s a paid subscription with a minimum operating budget requirement.
OpenGrants is a grant search engine and expert marketplace that includes federal, state, local, private, and international funding. Users can search grants for free, and hire qualified professionals to help them.
How should you use these tools?
Established nonprofits with experienced development teams and a minimum operating budget can use Instrumentl to source and manage their ongoing grant funding efforts.
Nonprofits and for-profits of all sizes can use OpenGrants to freely search public and private grant listings.
OpenGrants can also be used by nonprofits and for-profits who do not have dedicated grant staff—or do not have experience with grants—to find and hire qualified professionals to help them write a competitive application. Working with a professional typically increases your chances of winning by 3x.
