Social impact isn’t a tagline—
It’s our foundation

Based in Manhattan, Kansas, our Canopy team passionately supports thousands of education and service professionals around the United States.

Born from an in-house innovation at K-State, Canopy got its start developing a software platform that would allow social impact programs like SNAP-ed and Extension to input large volumes of information from day-to-day activities statewide and organize that data for streamlined compliance reporting. Swift adoption followed.

Collaboration with our growing team of partners culminated in the addition of greater platform capabilities, offering deeper insights into community engagement efforts and outcomes—helping our clients to leverage their successes more effectively in fundraising efforts.

We’re a team that understands that the business of helping others is complex, which is why we’re committed to making it easier for our clients to do their best work. We are driven by our mission and a shared set of values, with service at the heart of everything we do.

PEARS has changed the way we program and evaluate! We can look at all aspects and tweak programming as needed to make sure we reach EARS and all other evaluation impacts.

If you’re considering PEARS, do it. It’s a no brainer. If you’re looking for a system to create plans of work that are based in logic and evaluate those plans and track the things that you do, to tell a really good story about the work of your programs.

Extension Specialist, Program Development & Accountability

PEARS’ customer support is top notch! They are always willing to help in any way possible.

The #1 reason to switch to PEARS is someone else is going to help fix the system for you, and help your staff learn how to use it. There’s this big resource and a great group of people who are going to help your entire state be successful.
