Welcome to the IBM SafetyNet Grant Program
Today's not-for-profit organizations face two distinct challenges: delivering high quality services to their clients, and documenting results to ensure continued funding from both public and private funding sources. The IBM SafetyNet Grant Program meets these challenges by helping not-for-profits access and analyze client data quickly and efficiently -- consolidating multiple steps not only to comply with but also simplify a variety of reporting requirements, thus freeing up valuable staff time to focus on serving their clients’ needs.

About
IBM SafetyNet is a data management solution built on IBM’s Social Enterprise and Smarter Care Curam platform designed to help standardize and centralize contract, program, and client data. IBM SafetyNet enables exports and reports to allow for more effective communications with funders. Users report administrative time savings which can be better spent serving clients.
