Ready to Launch: New Community Fund Portal

A black smartphone sits on a table next to an open white laptop and a black pencilThe moment we’ve all been waiting for is here! The new community fund management portal is ready to launch, and several technology demonstration sessions have been scheduled across the region. Many of the interactions you currently have with SWIF via mail or email will be moving online. With this change, it is important that your board members understand how to access information via the new portal and how to submit approved grant applications, payment requests, gifts received, etc.

Please plan for board members to attend one of the following sessions:

  • Marshall: Oct. 22 @ SMSU, Student Center (SC 207)
  • Montevideo: Oct. 23 @ The Crossings Golf Course
  • Hutchinson: Nov. 1 @ SWIF office conference room
  • Worthington: Nov. 19 @ Comfort Suites and Conference Center

All sessions go from 5 to 6:30 p.m., and a light supper will be served.

These events are open to SWIF community and education foundation advisory board members.

Take note that once all processes move online, only advisory board officers (chair, vice chair, treasurer and secretary) will be able to access the fund portal site. Board members who are not listed on the roster WILL NOT have access to fund information. It is imperative that board rosters be up to date and that term expiration dates are accurate.

These demonstration events are the second step in SWIF’s Engaged Partners Grant for community foundations. Community foundation boards can earn up to $1,500 ($250 for each board member attending, up to six attendees) by having board members attend the technology demonstration events. By participating in this and other upcoming SWIF events, community foundations can earn up to $5,000!

A registration link for the training sessions will be provided in the coming weeks.
