There are so many people in need, but hopefully there are also so many people who are willing to help them. And in our fast-changing world, technology plays the leading role in how we can do this. Non-profit organisations can now choose from a vast array of high-tech solutions which have been built specifically for them. A non-profit starter pack has turned Salesforce’s CRM into the world’s number 1 CRM for non-profits and numerous components have now made its functionality even broader.

Advanced Communities specialises in Salesforce Community Cloud and is one of the biggest providers of Community components that are especially suitable for non-profits and available on AppExchange for free. Recently, Advanced Communities created a complete AC Non-Profit Start Pack – a set of components developed for everything you would need to build a successful fundraising campaign.

AC Non-Profit Start Pack for Salesforce Community Cloud allows big and small non-profits to:

  • Manage effectively all their data in one place;
  • Easily recruit and engage their volunteers;
  • Keep in continuous communication with their constituents;
  • Vastly improve their fundraising efforts;
  • Gain a helicopter view of their analytics.

Advanced Communities and its AC Non-Profit Start Pack provide non-profit organisations with multiple options for any kind of fundraising campaign including:

One-time donation: a fundraising campaign launched for any purpose requires a basic set of functionalities.

Recurring donation: regularly scheduled donations for single or multiple fundraising campaigns conducted by non-profits and supported by a large pack of functionalities.

Sponsorship: raising money by organising on-line and off-line fundraising events can be another way of generating funds for non-profits.

On-line shop: raising money by setting up an on-line shop for buying and selling products and services for a charitable purpose. A charitable auction is another great way to raise money through an on-line storefront.

Now, let’s take a look at how those components can be applied to managing a successful fundraising campaign.

AC Payments & Donations allows non-profits to process credit and debit card payments for their products, subscriptions, service or membership fees on their Salesforce community. The component is based on the Stripe API payment system and can be integrated with Non-Profit Success Pack (NPSP).

  • Secure and reliable Salesforce payment and donation processing.
  • Process one-time and recurring transactions by drag and dropping our component on any Community page.
  • Create donation campaigns and track their performance in Salesforce.
  • Full tracking and reporting on all transactions.
