Ability Central Announces New Tech Grants for California Nonprofits

Grants offer help installing CRMs for nonprofits serving disabled communities

Oakland, California – February 23, 2022 – Ability Central is introducing a new grantmaking program from its Cloud Consulting initiative, offering grants to cover the complete cost of a Salesforce CRM implementation, plus support and maintenance from staff for a full year. The combined value of the installation plus service is more than $10,000, provided at no cost to the grantee.

Recipients of the Reach for the Cloud grant will be provided with a dedicated project manager and expert technical resources to install and configure the Salesforce Nonprofit Success Pack (NPSP) which turns Salesforce’s CRM for businesses into a constituent relationship management system for nonprofits. The Salesforce NPSP, along with 10 enterprise user licenses, is provided without charge by Salesforce.org, the charitable wing of Salesforce.com. Ability Central will partner with organizations as they implement the new CRM and navigate any challenges that may arise.

Ability Central is providing a limited number of Reach for the Cloud grants for implementation throughout 2022. Applicants will be considered upon application receipt. Nonprofits operating in California that serve Deaf, disabled, or neurodiverse populations are eligible to apply.
