Uniting Programs, Fundraising, Engagement, how to Create a Greater Impact?  

Salesforce believes that technology should bring people and organizations closer together to make sure that critical moments make a significant impact. To do this, Salesforce wants to break down the walls within an organization and any barriers between an organization and the outside world. The Nonprofit Cloud allows for more collaboration with stakeholders and makes it easier to share information and learn from/ use any data.   

Salesforce prioritized delivering robust programs through collaboration, growing fundraising income, learning about a community to develop with it, and measuring and learning from any impact an organization may have.   

Before the Nonprofit Cloud, Salesforce layered nonprofit applications on top of a pre-existing platform rather than allowing users to build directly into the core of Salesforce. Over twenty-plus years, Salesforce has developed over 14 software packages with the Nonprofit Cloud solution anchored by the Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP).   

With faster and easier access to nonprofit technology, you and your supporters can measure your organization by Impact. Making sure you spend time driving Impact rather than piecing together data from different systems will drive faster decisions that will help determine what is working and what requires improvement. The new platforms unify programs, fundraising, engagement, and outcomes and give you easier access to innovations that Salesforce comes out with.   

Greater Cross-Sector Impact   

The Nonprofit Cloud includes programs and case management designed to quickly adopt modern technology in different industries. The Salesforce technology is more about getting the job done, including working with your program participants, families, governments, healthcare professionals, and other nonprofits to ensure a more significant impact. Everyone drives impact.   

Salesforce believes in the ‘Power of Us Program’ and the 111 models (giving 1% of equity, product, and employee time back to its communities). The ‘Power of Us’ is a unique initiative designed specifically for nonprofits for several reasons. The program includes the Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack, a preconfigured version of Salesforce tailored for nonprofit organizations. It has custom objects, fields, and workflows designed specifically for nonprofit organization needs, such as donor management, volunteer tracking, fundraising, and program management.
