Fíonta Association Accelerator

Born from Fíonta’s deep association expertise, Fíonta Association Accelerator marries years of Salesforce proficiency with an unwavering commitment to resolve your challenges.

Manage members and increase engagement with Fíonta Association Accelerator

Associations connect people with common interests to foster exceptional personal and professional development. Their success relies on a well-integrated membership technology platform, a cornerstone for streamlined operations and outstanding member experiences.

Since its founding in 2001, Fíonta has witnessed a struggle for associations burdened by antiquated, overly complex systems and disjointed data sources. The result? Dismal member engagement and cumbersome processes that drain precious time and resources. The urgency to act is palpable as associations understand the need to centralize and embrace a singular platform – the key to data consolidation, tech stack simplicity, and the seamless journey your members now demand.

Securing member data and access online

The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) is respected for its dedication to industrial hygiene and occupational and environmental health and safety communities. This membership-based organization founded in the New Deal era has stayed relevant to its growing membership by providing robust benefits, many of which are now accessible through its digital properties. These include a WordPress website fully integrated with Fonteva, an Association Management Solution (AMS) built on Salesforce. Under our guidance, the website was migrated to a new hosting solution, Pantheon, without disrupting member services or access. Visit website

Enhancing the quality of life for millions, one donation at a time

With the generous support of the public, they are helping amputees live well with limb loss, raising awareness about limb loss prevention, and ensuring amputees have a voice in matters affecting their ability to live full, thriving lives.

The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities’ upgraded site now offers improved functionality and accessibility on a robust, secure hosting platform, and will be easily upgraded to Drupal 9 when the time comes. Center on Budget and Policy Priorities
Fíonta has that ideal combination of exceptional technical skill and outstanding customer service. The consultant I worked with dove right in, figuring out a system he didn't originally implement. His analytical skills are amazing, and he quickly identified the right solution for a variety of issues...he explained everything to me in a way I could understand. Los Angeles Conservancy
Bread for the City logo
The whole Fíonta team offered a high level of expertise and professionalism. They did a great job at communicating and managing expectations and identifying risks. They kept us on a timeline despite being on a very aggressive schedule. Bread for the City
SIGN Fracture Care
Our engagement with Fíonta was a very positive experience...Our team at Fíonta was extremely helpful and responsive, and we would definitely engage them in the future. SIGN Fracture Care
Fíonta gets it! Our organization had been frustratingly overwhelmed with Salesforce and displeased with our initial partner and implementation. With Fíonta, we were able to realign our Salesforce implementation with our real work business needs as a multi-layered nonprofit. Fíonta has been in the trenches and understands the needs of foundations and nonprofits. Homeboy Industries
Fíonta has been a terrific partner with us in our multi-stage process of adopting Salesforce with a complex data model and many home-grown workflows. They’ve been highly accommodating of our own processes and constraints, including when we’ve opted to do some work in-house. Their team has been great to work with. Telluride Association
