5 Reasons Why Salesforce Is Right for Your Nonprofit
Free. Salesforce gives nonprofits TEN free user licenses. That’s attracted many nonprofits to Salesforce.
But, let’s be honest. When it comes to technology, nothing is really free. Making the technology work is an investment that takes time, effort and resources. Think of the free licenses as a bonus to these five reasons why Salesforce is right for many nonprofit.
1. Salesforce is powerful.
2. Salesforce is open-source.
The data from all these applications will flow into Salesforce – the unified database – and your nonprofit will be able to act faster, with better information and significant time savings.
3. Salesforce has a community of support.

4. Salesforce has a deep talent pool.
Over 40,000 nonprofits are now using Salesforce for Nonprofits. That number is climbing every day. That means the number of development officers, communication directors, I.T. professionals, and even accountants with Salesforce experience has become rich and diverse.
And because Salesforce is a constituent management system and not just a donor management system, you’ll also be able to recruit people with Salesforce experience from the for-profit and public sector.
Together, this dramatically improves the likelihood that your new hire will be able to hit the ground running.
5. Salesforce is an organization builder.
And thousands of nonprofits are taking Salesforce way beyond donor management. Nonprofits are using Salesforce for case management, volunteer organization, advocate mobilization, and outcomes tracking. One data platform that the entire organization can learn to use.
No more exported spreadsheets from one department’s system being uploaded to another’s… Just seamless integration across your entire organization.
