The Salesforce.com Foundation has announced the Force for Change grant recipients, selected for their inspiring work, to help scale innovation and transform the nonprofit sector in the coming year.
A number of nonprofits were selected across the globe; each will receive a share of the $1.3m pot. In the UK, the grants have been awarded to Technology Trust and Third Sector IT.
Technology Trust will use its grant to increase the success achieved by non-profits using donated Salesforce licenses by creating a ‘meeting place’ for these organisations to engage more effectively with the salesforce.com partner community, and target non-profits that don’t have budgets that allow for fully-funded, larger scale projects.
Third Sector will use its grant to offer free Salesforce training for non-profits to advance their missions more effectively and efficiently.
Suzanne DiBianca, president, Salesforce.com Foundation said: “Our Force for Change grants program is focused on increasing collaboration and efficiencies across the global nonprofit sector and rewards innovators working to accelerate change. These recipients represent some of the most inspirational change agents in the social sector.”
