Both nonprofits and institutions of higher education need the same tools and resources as for-profit companies. Salesforce’s Power of Us program works with these groups directly, with over 28,000 participating organizations.
The “Power of Us” program gives nonprofit organizations access to Salesforce products and resources so they can drive their success in the same ways that for-profit companies do. This happens with some help from donors and special rates specific to the organizations.
There’s an overview of the program on the Salesforce website, and qualifying organizations can try the product free for 30 days. You can also easily determine your eligibility.
