Benefactor-The Beginning

Benefactor was developed by a team led by the Gallery Partnership's Founder and Managing Director, Mark Kemp

In 1994, Mark was working for the National Lottery Charities Board and had the idea of creating software in order to aid Grant Makers in managing their own needs.

After a lot of code writing, listening and understanding what issues current grant makers were facing, 'Benefactor' was born and has since been continuously developed in line with the needs of Grant organisations and trustees.

The Gallery Partnership ensures Benefactor clients have regular User Group meetings allowing clients to network with other Grant Making organisations.

Grant Management Software

Choosing the right Grant Management Software is not an easy decision and there are several factors to consider

  • Security & Compliance including GDPR regulations
  • Accessibility, Ease & Speed of use
  • Availability & quality of system documentation
  • Length and cost of technical support  
  • Backup and Recovery - Scalability
  • Integration with current programmes

Rest assured, the Gallery Partnership have considered all these factors when developing Benefactor.

Our expert team works with each client during the build and implementation to configure Benefactor for individual organisational needs. Once the training process is completed, your 'System Administrators' will have all the skills to configure Benefactor in the future, as necessary. 

“The amount of service they provide for ourselves and all of our charities has been fantastic. We know bad support and it was such a pleasure to start working with someone who actually cares if your internet is working or not and someone who takes the time to explain that language known as ‘IT’.”
