Manage Financial Data
With so many account transactions in your green revolving fund, GRITS makes it easy to see the financials. Whether you’re spending money on materials and labor for a new project, paying a student intern from the account, or transferring utilities savings back into the account, GRITS can keep track of it all.
Is your fiscal year untraditional? Does your green revolving fund charge an annual interest rate that you want to be automatically calculated? Simply edit these assumptions in the Institution Profile page and it will be applied to your projects.
