The Necessity of Salesforce’s Nonprofit Cloud

According to the Nonprofit Trend Report, over 80% of surveyed respondents rely on technology rather than individuals to manage their organizations. However, only about a third of respondents claimed to effectively utilize data to address various challenges in program design, fundraising, marketing, and internal operations. Nonprofit Cloud addresses this gap by centralizing fundraising, grant-making, and program data, enabling nonprofits to gain valuable insights. By leveraging the power of Salesforce and CRM technology, Nonprofit Cloud helps you better track your supporters and programs, leading to more efficient methods of achieving your purpose.
