Hello! Welcome once again to DemandBlue’s Impact Management blog series. By now, most of you are well familiar with the term Impact Management and how adopting it can help your organization align with goals. However, if you are new to this blog series, we recommend checking out our previous blogs on Impact Management.
Before diving into the next part of Impact Management, let’s review what we have previously covered:
Impact Management: Impact Management is a series of practices and competencies that help evaluate, manage, and improve the outcomes of your nonprofit activities. Impact Management enhances the output of your organization at every level by combining the elements of program management, monitoring, impact measurement, and evaluation.
Adopting Impact Management: Adopting Impact Management is essential for your organization to deliver its best when it comes to assure maximum impact to beneficiaries’ lives and to gain the trust of your donors. Following best practices and appropriately applying your resources and data can help you adopt impact management for your organization at every level.
Here are the three ways to accelerate the adoption:
- Strategic Evidence Plan
- Program Inventory and Map
- Leverage an Impact Dashboard
Creating Impact with Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud
Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud is an excellent platform that caters to nonprofit organizations allowing them to manage their activities, donors, funds, and campaigns. It provides end-to-end support and helps bridge the gaps between your organization’s marketing, finance, program management, strategy building, and much more. In addition, it gives you a holistic view of the entire organization and everyone associated with it, from a single vantage point. This significantly aids your organization to run nonprofit campaigns faster and better, which creates the needed impact.
How Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud helps to amplify your organization’s impact:
Program Management Module and Case Management
Both Program Management Module and Case Management deliver deep tracking and management functionalities from which nonprofits can benefit. These modules give nonprofit organizations the ability to manage beneficiary interactions, programs and extract meaningful impact data. The ability to track activities and process provides access to precise information on donor’s and beneficiaries’ journeys through your programs.
Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud helps nonprofit organizations to capture data at every level of the organization. It extracts program and impact data of previous and current years so nonprofits can compare outcomes and understand the growth and shortcomings of their programs. It also generates detailed reports and provides insightful analysis that helps improve decision-making to improve the output quality of nonprofit activities.
Nonprofit Cloud can help nonprofits to manage their finances with its Accounting Subledger by preparing fundraising and donation campaign information for the accounting system. This saves your finance and fundraising teams significant time and budget on reconciliation tasks by simply connecting systems to ensure a single source of truth for payment and revenue data. It provides connected finance solutions and takes care of the inbound and outbound allocation.
