Want to learn what saleforce.org and the 1 1 1 model are? We’ll explain it to you. 

If you are a nonprofit or charity organisation, it is sometimes challenging to have the same opportunities as larger for-profit companies, Salesforce.org is here to change that. 

We’ve also included videos throughout to help visualise each concept. Read, watch or scan, it’s up to you. And, don’t forget to get in touch with us if you’re looking for any more help.

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 massive $168 million in grants has been provided to those in need.

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.

Who is it for?  

Salesforce.org is split into three main sections to ensure you get the right help for your needs:

Salesforce.org Philanthropy Cloud

Philanthropy Cloud  

Philanthropy Cloud is a way of organising and expanding your philanthropic projects, whether you’re a big company or a small nonprofit, you will have the same opportunities to give back. Philanthropy Cloud is perfect for companies, with the ability to manage grants, assess the impact your corporation is having, track volunteer progress as well as giving campaigns and many other features. On the other hand, if you are a smaller nonprofit, Philanthropy cloud caters to your every need too, from your personal Nonprofit Portal. You can control pledge processing, create and manage content and use Salesforce CRM Integration to have a clear understanding and stay on top of your entire business.

Salesforce.org Education Cloud

The Education Cloud in Practice  

  Education is an incredibly valuable business sector and one that needs to be on top of all their students, staff and activities. With Education Cloud, you can ensure you are gaining the right students and staff by having a full view of what engages them. Once you know what they respond to, you can access several different ways to communicate and share. You can sort in/outgoings into manageable groups such as student accommodation, financial aids, enrolment stages and more. You can 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.

Nonprofit Cloud

The newest addition to Salesforce.org is Nonprofit Cloud. The platform can track all of your efforts and present them in real-time, allowing you to be up to date with all the impact you are having. You can manage fundraising efforts by tracking donations and the donors that provided them. You can access volunteer tracking and events funds- allowing you to be aware at every stage of the process. Nonprofit Cloud gives its users the freedom to branch out into different channels and platforms to be sure you have every element covered. If there is something else you’re missing that is not already in the out of the box version, you can access the Nonprofit AppExchange. This app gives you access to over 1,700 different partner apps, meaning all that time-consuming paperwork you have been struggling with is no longer needed.
