Why we use GrantWatch?

GrantWatch has provided us fantastic services since we have started as a 501c3 and in 2020 it has made a big impact in our work and efforts to help artists and musicians. The COVID19 pandemic changed the game and the arts have been stranded. Many of our artists have lost the possibility to perform or display. Even if GrantWatch has helped Ascoltando continue to grow each and every year by opening up so many doors and opportunities, this year it was the year when we got the most out of their services. As a nonprofit, even if our efficiency is quite high, we have operation costs and many expenses. Applying for the right grants has made a huge difference in making sure we are able to keep our operation run smooth plus we can offer better funding for our artists.
