With so many business sectors able to gain from Salesforce, big or small, anything from legal to retail, it is no surprise that they also cater to the charity and nonprofit sector on Salesforce.org. Being a nonprofit or charity organisation it is sometimes difficult to have the same opportunities as larger for-profit companies, Salesforce.org is here to change that. Check out this short video here to see who what Salesforce.org can help with and keep reading to find out how.

How does Salesforce.org help?

Salesforce.org was developed off of the Salesforce 1-1-1 model. Salesforce invites all of its partners to give back in the form of 1% of its product, time, or resources. Just 1% can make all the difference when done together. So much so, that in the 18 years the 1% pledge has been active, more than 32,000 donations to nonprofits have been given, alongside 2.3 million hours of community service and a huge $168 million in grants has been provided to those in need.
Salesforce.org 1-1-1 model
Salesforce.org provides volunteering programs, grants and above all, technology for tens of thousands of nonprofits and educational institutions. With access to Salesforce, you can continue to give back across a range of platforms assisting you at every stage. You can manage finances, see where donations came from and find out how to further market and share your stories and ideas to continue to grow.

Education is an incredibly important business sector and one that needs to be on top of all their students, staff and activities. With Education Cloud you are able to ensure you are gaining the right students and staff by having a full view into what engages them. Once you know what they respond to, you are able to access a number of different ways to communicate and share. You are able to sort in/outgoings into manageable groups such as student accommodation, financial aids, enrolment stages and more. You are able to gain feedback on what is and is not working from lesson structures, to content with students and make improvements. You can track, record and analyse data all in one place for easy review.  Check out the video for more uses and to see Education Cloud in practice here.
