  • “Foundations stand to reap significant benefits from Salesforce, and foundationConnect is their entry point. Without foundationConnect, making the switch to Salesforce would be impossible. It is the indispensable bridge between where foundations are now and where they need to be: a fully integrated system that houses most, if not all of their essential functions.”

    - Dale Craker, Salesforce Administrator at Great Outdoors Colorado

    “foundationConnect has significantly improved efficiency with our Letter of Inquiry process, and we now get higher quality LOIs. The Foundation’s staff was able to save time, accept more qualified requests and grant more funds.”

    - Tom Lawrence, Executive Director at The Leon Levine Foundation

  • “Reporting with foundationConnect is extremely comprehensive and powerful. There has been no reporting request that we have not been able to provide using foundationConnect.”

    - Mark Barreiro, Sr. Grants & Operations Manager, New York State Health Foundation

    “foundationConnect has enabled us to streamline grantmaking and work in a more efficient, informed and integrated fashion. Now I can use my time more effectively to support our mission, rather than looking for a hard copy or reaching out to my colleagues about information we can easily find in foundationConnect.”

    - Cristina Yoon, the Skoll Foundation.

  • “foundationConnect is integral to our grantmaking – it is used by more than 500 of our employees and all of our senior management team. The underlying Salesforce platfom is allowing us to replace many of the homegrown systems easily and with already built-in familiarity.”

    - Mary Cadagin, CIO of Open Society Foundations.
