Put your corporate social responsibility (CSR) program into every employee’s hands.

Successful workplace giving and volunteering programs have been linked to improved productivity, employee satisfaction, and better recruiting success. But these programs can be challenging to manage and implement. From vetting nonprofits and managing payroll deductions to coordinating volunteer opportunities, tracking hours and measuring social impact, CSR programs can be a nightmare.

United Way has solved this problem.

What will using Philanthropy Cloud be like for employees?

People are attached at the hip, hand, and head to their phones, that’s why Philanthropy Cloud provides a 360-degree view of an individual’s social impact footprint from any device. With Salesforce Einstein AI technology, Philanthropy Cloud can intelligently sift through millions of opportunities, helping employees discover the most personally-meaningful ways to give back. Philanthropy Cloud will also include revolutionary portable profiles, which means a user’s social impact history is not tied to just one company, it moves and evolves with their career path.

Is a Philanthropy Cloud profile connected to the company or the individual user?

Both! Philanthropy Cloud will feature portable profiles. Users will be able to take their Philanthropy Cloud profiles with them when they leave their employer, continue giving and engaging as individual users, then connect their account to a new employer in the future. Users will be able to access their full giving history but companies will only be able to see activity from each person during their time of employment. The profiles will leave a footprint, so companies can see the social impact former employees had at their previous employer.

Is a team or specialist needed to implement Philanthropy Cloud?

Philanthropy Cloud is a simple and intuitive network that requires minimum configuration and is built to help align your employee’s values with your corporate social responsibility goals. You don’t need to hire an entire team to manage your corporate philanthropy programs. Now you can have a network that connects, streamlines, and transforms your CSR program’s administrative processes. With tools like automated reporting and personalized giving recommendations for employees, your staff will have more time to focus on what matters most – how your company is changing the world. Also, know that you always have the support and guidance of United Way, the experts in workplace giving.

Does a company currently need to be using Salesforce to implement Philanthropy Cloud?

No, you do not need to be using Salesforce CRM to implement Philanthropy Cloud. Today, any company can purchase Philanthropy Cloud.
