We’re happy to give a hearty welcome to Now IT Matters, our latest Soapbox Engage Salesforce Partner.
Here’s the word straight from our newly minted partner on why Now IT Matters…well, matters:
Fresh on the heels of Soapbox Petitions being added to the Salesforce.com AppExchange, we’re pleased as punch to share that Soapbox Events has joined it there as well!
Through clicks not code, Soapbox Events provides simple yet powerful online event management tools integrated with Salesforce. That combination makes it a rare bird. Just ask Justin Birdsong, Manager or Technology Product Development for the Cultural Data Project:
“Soapbox Events is a really, really excellent tool. I spent about 6 months researching different options and looked at everything from free bolt-ons to paid apps to full-scale customized consulting projects, and frankly, nothing really fit the mold unless we were prepared to spend tens of thousands.”
We’re excited to announce that the Soapbox Engage Petitions app is the first advocacy service ready for the newly announced NGO Connect platform from the Salesforce Foundation. With the Soapbox Engage Petitions app, organizations like the Global Fund for Women have created engaging and compelling online advocacy actions, growing their supporter and donor base without needing to invest in more IT.
Now with the NGO Connect platform, organizations can use enterprise-grade CRM services in conjunction with Soapbox Engage Petitions app to jumpstart their online advocacy campaigns and save time and money.
“We’re extremely excited to bring the next generation of online advocacy to enterprise organizations using NGO Connect,” said Ryan Ozimek, CEO of PICnet. ”For too long, large organizations needed to use outdated advocacy tools that created data silos. Today, with the Soapbox Engage Petitions app and NGO Connect, organizations will no longer have to make a decision between best of breed advocacy tools or best of breed CRM services. They can have both at the same time!” Read more »

Action for Healthy Kids faced a common dilemma at the core of every nonprofit: how to gauge impact. Specifically, as a nonprofit mobilizing thousands of volunteers to catalyze change in schools across the nation, how could they know how many schools they were touching?
In Soapbox Engage and Salesforce.com, Action for Healthy Kids found their answer:
When Action for Healthy Kids elected to build their new website with Soapbox Engage, they chose more than just a great looking, mobile-friendly website that was easy to manage and useful for event registrations. They adopted a powerful platform integrating with Salesforce.com in ways that have transformed core business processes.
Action for Healthy Kids has chapters across the country. Each of these chapters has events for which they manage online reservations.
Two weeks ago, we highlighted Global Fund for Women, a leader in advancing the rights of women and girls worldwide, and its efforts to mobilize supporters around the globe with Soapbox Petitions and Salesforce.

What’s more, the overwhelming percentage of these supporters are new to Global Fund for Women:
