Do you use Salesforce? Or are you interested in using Salesforce for your nonprofit? Learn why Salesforce is the go-to CRM for nonprofits.
Nonprofit organizations face unique challenges in managing relationships with their donors, volunteers, and beneficiaries. One tool that can help streamline these relationships and increase efficiency is a Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system.
Through a CRM, nonprofits can manage their relationships with donors, volunteers, and beneficiaries. A CRM system can help nonprofits streamline their operations and increase efficiency by centralizing all their data in one place. This enables nonprofits to better understand their constituents and make data-driven decisions to improve their programs and fundraising efforts.
A nonprofit CRM system can help manage donations, volunteers, events, and campaigns, among other things. By using a CRM system, nonprofits can track donor and volunteer engagement, manage event registration, and target fundraising campaigns more effectively.
“[Managing our database] was something we struggled with for a long time. We tried to use our animal database (that we use to track all our adoptable animals) to store our donor information. The software was literally made for animal sheltering, so that did not work out.
Once we had gotten a subscription for DonorPerfect it really changed how we were even just interacting with our donors. Now we have the ability to put in our content history and donors different interests and whatnot.”
Alright, now that we’ve convinced you that a CRM is kind of a MUST for nonprofits, let’s get into the other juicy stuff!
In this blog post, we’re highlighting one of the most popular CRMs among nonprofits, which is Salesforce and why it’s crucial to make sure your CRM can integrate with your fundraising software, like Givecloud.
Salesforce is a cloud-based CRM system that is widely used by nonprofits. Salesforce offers a variety of tools to help nonprofits manage their relationships with donors, volunteers, and beneficiaries. Nonprofits can use Salesforce to track donations, manage events, communicate with donors, and more.
One of the key benefits of Salesforce for nonprofits is its ability to integrate with other software tools, like Givecloud. Salesforce offers a marketplace of over 4,000 apps and integrations, allowing nonprofits to customize their CRM system to meet their specific needs.
For example, nonprofits can integrate Salesforce with Givecloud to track donations and donor information in real-time.
Salesforce also offers a range of resources and support for nonprofits, including discounted pricing, training resources, and a community of nonprofit users. The Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) is a free, open-source tool designed specifically for nonprofits. The NPSP includes pre-built reports and dashboards, fundraising and donor management tools, and volunteer and program management features.
