Part 1 – Why do 47,000 Nonprofits use Salesforce’s Nonprofit Success Pack?

Salesforce’s Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) helps nonprofits of any size utilize all of the power of the world’s #1 CRM to manage constituents, programs, and fundraising with ease. 

1. 10 free licenses!
What’s the catch? There isn’t one. Through the Salesforce Power of Us program, take advantage of 10 free Salesforce Enterprise Edition licenses, plus deep discounts on additional licenses, available to every nonprofit, charitable, educational, and social change institution. Because the NPSP package is also free, all of the power of Salesforce can be leveraged at a price even the smallest nonprofits can often afford.

2. Expand your donor network with households, relationships and affiliations

Knowing who your donors know is a great way to expand your reach. With Salesforce’s NPSP product, you can visualize your donors within their households, the relationships they have in their community, and the organizations they are affiliated with. Attending an event at a local business organization? Quickly view all of your current constituents affiliated with that organization to assist with networking and add your new connections to preserve those relationships after the event.

3. Customized donation management
NPSP can be used right out of the box to help you manage your fundraising, or it can be customized to fit your needs. Do you have one process you follow to solicit planned gifts, but an entirely different process to solicit event sponsorships? With many systems you’re left creating workarounds to make the system fit your needs, but with Salesforce you can adapt the system to do exactly what you need it to do for you.

4. Inbound grant management
Grant writing and reporting takes an enormous amount of effort and organization. Salesforce deliverables and tasks are ready to help you manage the grant application process. Track your deliverables and deadlines with ease right in the same system that tracks the progress and probability for each grant application in your queue. What happens when the grant is awarded? With just a few updates the whole history of your work is right there along with the incoming payment information. And if you’re using Salesforce to track your programs and services, you can even report out to your funders all from the same database. Managing the grant lifecycle has never been easier!

At Redpath, we understand nonprofit fundraising and we’re ready to help you customize everything from gift types to solicitation stages, and soft credits to recurring donations in order to create a system that meets your needs.
