A Quick Introduction:
DonorBox is a leading online donation platform with a fast, optimized checkout. It also focuses on recurring donations, flexible data collection, and ease of use. Sign up for free and create campaigns for all your fundraising needs, then track your donations as you go! You can also embed the donation form or button right onto your website to give your supporters easy access.
We partnered up with Salesforce, the world’s # 1 CRM platform, to integrate their Non-Profit Starter Pack (NPSP) with DonorBox. The NPSP, as its name suggests, is built specifically for non-profits, to allow you to easily analyze your donor data (names, addresses, relationships, donation frequency, etc.) and maintain positive relations with those who support you. More than 27,000 nonprofits and educational institutes are using Salesforce NPSP. To find our more about Salesforce NPSP please visit www.salesforcefoundation.org/help/nonprofitstarterpack. We recommend doing the quick Nonprofit Start Pack Workbook.
This manual was made to guide you through the simple integration process, so that you can automatically sync all your DonorBox donors with your Salesforce NPSP account, and become familiar with both platforms in no time! Take a look.
