Designed with nonprofits in mind

Unlike many general-purpose CRMs, Salesforce offers Nonprofit Cloud, including Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP). It’s a set of tools designed to help NPOs further their mission by tracking constituents, personalizing marketing messages, and automating routine tasks. With the Salesforce platform, you can dedicate more time to what really matters, making a positive impact on the community.

Nonprofits get preferences

Both Salesforce and iTechArt recognize the importance of the work that the NPOs are doing. That’s why charities and other nonprofits get special treatment. Salesforce offers eligible organizations 10 free subscriptions and discounts on certain products or services through the “Power of Us” program. We offer special, lower rates for our work.

We share common values

Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff said: “Companies can do more than just make money; they can serve others.” This has become the de facto motto of the “Pledge 1%” — a corporate philanthropy initiative encouraging businesses to bring value to the community.

iTechArt joined this movement and pledged 1% of our time to support local non-governmental animal shelters. We encourage our employees to help out and make the world a better place, one saved animal at a time.
