Simply360 & The Creators Social
Jake Grinsted first started with The Fresh Air Fund in college, but a summer adventure soon became a full-time job in NYC. After inheriting old program management tools built with MS Access, Excel, Oracle, and paper filing cabinets, he soon began a quest for a more useful program management CRM system. Not satisfied with the tools on the market, Jake headed a small team who built a new in-house CRM that now manages over a million people… helping staff with program relationships, registration and attendance, transportation, geographical mapping, and of course outcome reporting. Before long, The Fresh Air Fund’s partners were asking to use this CRM too, and what began in-house inspired a new stand-alone platform called Simply360. Jake now works with nonprofits to implement their program management CRM, and also runs a community organization for fellow creators called The Creators Social.
