Why Salesforce NPSP is Critical for Nonprofits

The strain of donation management and overall nonprofit accounting is over. Salesforce’s Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) coupled with Accounting Seed gives you a single platform to spearhead your entire nonprofit mission. Get ready to streamline your entire financial process from donation to ledger.

Why Salesforce NPSP is critical for Nonprofits

Besides the constant push for funding, you’re probably in a struggle to maximize as much time for your mission as possible. A lot of your time constraints can be caused by the IT solutions your nonprofit uses. A 2018 report found that 7.5% of nonprofits reported outdated or ineffective technology to be among their greatest roadblocks to growth. Manual labor and unconnected applications continue to bog organizations down. This is especially problematic for nonprofits who already juggle multiple regulations and business components to achieve milestones.

Being able to track, organize, and optimize the variables powering your nonprofit leads to growth and greater outreach for your mission. This is where NPSP comes in. You have the platform to run and track your entire operation in real-time. The use of Nonprofit Cloud in NPSP has helped nonprofits achieve over a 24% donor retention and over 89% improvement in achieving mission objectives!

Instead of scrambling to manage different components of the nonprofit in different solutions, all your data and tools are in one location through NPSP. This means no more data re-entry. No more time wasted looking for information you need. Start a process in one tool on NPSP and resume the work in the appropriate, connected app. This includes your nonprofit’s accounting system.
