Salesforce is a constituent relationship management (CRM) system used by organizations to manage donor, volunteer, and business relationships on a multitude of levels. In addition, nonprofits are offered up to 10 licenses for free!
Among the many robust features the Salesforce CRM offers is the ability to integrate Salesforce into virtually every account (i.e., Outlook, social media, donation forms, email, websites, etc.) thanks to a variety of apps!
Here is great list of the top free apps for nonprofits, compiled by The Connected Cause.
- Donation Split
Cloud for Good
An application used for splitting donations between multiple programs, and provide a view for account administrators to view allocated funds as well as the total amount donated.
- Eventbrite Sync
Connect your events to Salesforce and record registration, contact information, and payments without duplication.
An incredibly powerful tool for managing large amounts of data, including standardizing supporter contact information format, the ability to build scenarios that can be used multiple times, mass insertion and deletion of data, and all readily available in an Excel file.
