It is very exciting to hear that salesforce.com has released Volunteerforce, for a company to manage their volunteering impact. Navatar’s association with nonprofits has been long and deep – complex salesforce implementations at nonprofits such as AARP, United Way, Girls Inc, Council On Accreditation, Points of Light Foundation, participation in the salesforce.com Foundation Power of Us program, as well as my own role on the Board of United Way in New Delhi and in India overall. Volunteerforce will be great for companies no doubt – it will also help nonprofits as more companies provide better mechanisms to help engage their employees in Volunteering activities.
