Great Corporate Philanthropy

Many of us in the nonprofit world are jaded about offers of help and resources from the corporate world. But SalesForce is a star in the world of charitable commitment. SalesForce is a leader in databases / CRMs, and has a real commitment to 1/1/1 model: they give 1% of their product, 1% of their staff time, and 1% of their income to charity. Many nonprofits are using SalesForce, because it’s an amazing product, and nonprofits can get 10 free log-ins. JRP is lucky enough to have a volunteer who works for SalesForce, who is helping several nonprofits implement SalesForce to be a useful data management tool. Ken just finished implementing a CRM for College Access Plan (www.collegeaccessplan.org), and has received high praise for his work. He’s also completing a project for JRP’s Lowell, Mass. affiliate and will soon begin volunteering with another Pasadena nonprofit. What an amazing gift from SalesForce to have a free database and free help to set it up. Thanks to SalesForce for their real commitment to charity and thanks to Ken for being an awesome volunteer!
