Gitcoin Grants Stack: Your Complete Solution for Grants Program Management

On this page

We’re excited to announce the launch of Gitcoin Grants Stack: a decentralized, smart contract-enabled solution that streamlines the creation, management and growth of community-powered Quadratic Funding grants programs. 

Since its launch in 2019, the Gitcoin Grants Program has grown from a single matching pool supporting open source to a myriad of concurrent pools supporting initiatives like Climate, Ethereum infrastructure, and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. Throughout that growth, we’ve learned that no singular model fits every organization; being able to tweak features like project eligibility criteria or donor matching settings enables a community to determine which program best suits their needs. 

That’s why we’re excited to announce the launch of Gitcoin Grants Stack: a decentralized, smart contract-enabled solution that streamlines the creation, management and growth of community-powered Quadratic Funding grants programs. 

Crowdfunding Meets Grants

Quadratic Funding makes your contributions count; the broader the support, the bigger the match. QF enables supporters to vote with their dollars on which projects they care about and distributes matching funds to projects that have the most community support, easing funding decisions for community leaders. 

Why Use Grants Stack?

Built with Allo Protocol, the product suite enables a streamlined management process for grants program managers—safe from bots and bad actors. 

With Gitcoin Grants Stack, you can:

  • Launch and manage a Quadratic Funding round
  • Empower applicants to mobilize their community and build onchain reputation
  • Enable supporters to vote with their dollars on which projects they care about
  • Distribute matching funds to the most popular projects that receive the most support

Key Features

Gitcoin Grants Stack employs four core components that make it possible to manage, discover, donate to, and participate in, grants programs. 

  • Manager: Simplify program creation, deployment and application management for programs managers 
  • Explorer: Browse, discover and apply to different grants programs; and support projects within a grants round
  • Builder: Create a project profile to build onchain reputation and manage grant applications
  • Gitcoin Passport Integration: Protect grants programs, grantees and supporters from fraud and Sybil attacks.

Funding What Matters. Together.

The Gitcoin community has a rich history of empowering builders and setting them up to thrive. We’re here to decentralize, democratize and scale that superpower. 

Now that we’ve tested Gitcoin Grants Stack during the Alpha rounds with UNICEF, Fantom and the Gitcoin Grants Program, we feel confident that we can begin to permissionlessly ramp up usage of this tool in Q2!
