There’s a reason the Salesforce.org community considers ourselves an Ohana, a family. We support each other and truly care about our client’s missions. As this community continues to adapt to the situation at hand, the Salesforce partner ecosystem has stepped up to offer a bevy of free resources that can be used to supercharge an organization’s ability to adapt and respond to the new normal.
As the leader of the pack, Salesforce sets the bar high by offering a multitude of learning assets and free licenses to its nonprofit customers. If you are a current Salesforce.org customer, you can find a comprehensive list of these resources in the Power of Us Hub.
As a quick summary, here are some of the products they are offering to assist:
- Health Cloud (restricted use)
- Philanthropy Cloud
- Personal Protection Equipment Donation and Requests
The Salesforce Partner Ecosystem
Following the precedent Salesforce has created, many of our partners are answering the call to help our nonprofit clients continue delivering their missions during this tumultuous time through free resources, products, and assistance.
Many organizations are utilizing this work from home time to clean up their databases and prepare for more digital campaigns. Apsona if offering discounted pricing on their Dedupe and Match add-on! Starting April 15th you can purchase 12 months for the price of 9 months, for any customer who isn’t currently using the product already.

DonorSearch is hosting a completely free virtual event series called Unbound, and every day they will have one to two different presentations or panel discussions (or sometimes coffee sit-downs in the morning and Wine happy hours in the afternoon) and our plan is to keep this virtual conference event going throughout the entire social distancing period to bring people together to Inspire, Educate and Connect in response to the COVID-19 situation where many professional gatherings have been canceled or postponed.
To support organizations and projects directly assist with COVID response, Formstack is offering licensing to their products. One of the beneficiaries of this offer, Shopping Angels, even had their story featured on CNN.
From now until August 1, 2020, they are also offering a free Formstack Forms HIPAA plan to all approved, qualified US-based healthcare, nonprofit, and government organizations collecting HIPAA data as it relates to the coronavirus pandemic.
