Get ready to raise more funds for your university with Advancement Connect from the Salesforce Foundation.

Available today, Advancement Connect is an application that empowers universities of all sizes to engage alumni in meaningful ways to significantly increase participation rates and fundraising efforts. With Advancement Connect, universities can manage fundraising, events, volunteers and more—all on a single platform.

Advancement Connect is built for frontline fundraisers, gift officers, program managers and volunteer managers to solve their three biggest problems:

1. Connecting lifetime data

With Advancement Connect, universities can provide a complete 360 degree view of each constituent, unlike most advancement applications which are siloed and prevent a university from managing a high volume of donor interactions.

2. Deploying a complete advancement solution

As a part of Salesforce1 for Higher Education, Advancement Connect allows universities to manage donors, volunteers, sponsors, events, campaigns and gifts across all channels.

3. Serving a mobile constituency

Advancement Connect is built social, mobile and cloud first and is available anywhere, from any device—allowing universities to connect with an alumni and donor population that is increasingly mobile.

Advancement Connect will empower universities to better manage intricate relationships with alumni, donors and sponsors to build stronger ties and increase donations. Built on the Salesforce1 Platform, Advancement Connect improves efficiencies within the advancement department by having donor information and performance metrics at your fingertips, no matter where you are.
