Pitchfinder is part of a family of bespoke technological innovations the Foundation has developed to save time and money, and help it direct our Funders’ investment to where it is needed most and will have the greatest impact. It sits alongside Upshot – an online project management and monitoring solution, which is now sold commercially – and Grantshot, which allows every Foundation applicant to take control of the progress of their application 24/7 via an online internet banking-style system. The Foundation’s delivery systems of investment are now so sophisticated that global corporates have harnessed them to deliver their own CSR programmes, and organisations around the world – including from China, the United States, Germany and Australia – have visited us to learn from our blueprint of best practice. But the work doesn’t stop there. With a culture of continuous improvement running through the Foundation’s very core, further refinements are on the horizon. Exciting new developments include Pitchfinder syncing with The FA’s Whole Game System and Sport England’s Active Places database, in a move that is facilitating strong partnership working across key organisations for the benefit of grassroots sport. “Pitchfinder provides the Foundation with unique strategic intelligence, helping us to identify the parts of the country that have the greatest need for facility provision and where the greatest impact can be achieved.”
