Nonprofits: Why should they care?

 In nonprofits, NPSP, Salesforce

Staff at nonprofits are typically trying to make the most of both every penny as well as every minute.

While it’s great that the Foundation gives ten free licenses to any recognized nonprofit, most nonprofits have learned that something being “free” doesn’t mean it’s not without costs.

  • Time: Any system change requires staff time to implement and attention to derive value from.
  • Distraction:  Internal changes create distractions from the mission that need to be managed and mitigated.
