Meet Nonprofits 101!

Cloud for Good is happy to provide and maintain the first Salesforce manual designed specifically for nonprofit organizations.  Consider this manual a service to the community of mission-focused organizations using the Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack to further their missions and increase their effectiveness.  At Cloud for Good, we work with nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions to create and implement strategic solutions based on cloud technology.   We are committed to listening and understanding the nonprofit community and as part of our commitment, we drafted this manual to help your organization maximize your investment in the platform. 

Comprised of an encyclopedic and comprehensive list of online resources, Salesforce best practices, and how-to guides, Nonprofits 101 can be directly configured into your Salesforce instance for continued support.  Add the Nonprofits 101 link to the sidebar on all your Salesforce pages for quick access to the education and information needed to propel your mission and take your business processes to the next level. 

Nonprofits 101 comes equipped with its very own user manual.  Across 9 separate chapters, this manual walks the user through getting started, common Salesforce tasks, data entering and management, running reports, how to properly administer your Salesforce environment, additional application support, and much more.  This manual and application can provide an in-depth introduction to Salesforce for users entirely new, as well as provide established users an easily accessible refresher if and when the time comes for a refresher.
