RSM Grants Management System for Dynamics is a module built by RSM to deliver a comprehensive grants and subgrants management system that empowers staff users to manage grants pipelines and spend time engaging with constituents and the community rather than managing endless spreadsheets.

MemberCast Portal allows your members to engage with your organization in real time, enabling your organization to collect various payments, submit online event registrations, and manage their member profile. MemberCast has a proven record in providing proper accounting with fully deferred revenue and recognition capabilities and enterprise reporting of key metrics to help your organization drive engagement through data-driven decisions.
Microsoft has developed an all-in-one tool called Fundraising and Engagement to aid Nonprofits in their Fundraising process, from the initial connection with Potential Donors, through one-off and recurring payments. These payments can be allocated appropriately to the corresponding mission account and integrated into the Organization’s AR/AP system for seamless tracking.
Additionally, the Fundraising and Engagement system offers an out-of-the-box portal that can be configured and skinned to match your existing site, while providing self-service capabilities for your constituents.
The Volunteer module of the Fundraising and Engagement tool allows your organization to keep track of potential opportunities for Volunteers to contribute. It helps you match up the resources with the right opportunity, whether by location, registered interest, date and time availability or relevant skill.
