Pain points

Managing the grant application process

Foundations often struggle to manage the grant application process from start to finish effectively. This complex journey involves efficiently handling applications, fostering collaboration among reviewers, and centralizing the application process. Let Fíonta design and build an integrated solution built on Salesforce’s Nonprofit Cloud to make the process more manageable and efficient, allowing you to spend more time increasing your impact.

Inefficient communication

Foundations rely on effective communication with grantees and stakeholders to build trust, foster collaboration, and ultimately enhance the impact of their philanthropic endeavors. However, this can be a complex task, often fraught with challenges related to email outreach, scheduling reminders, and tracking interactions. Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud is a versatile communication hub tailored to meet these needs.

Limited ability to assess impact

Foundations often struggle to report their impact in real-time. Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud goes beyond streamlining grant management; it also equips foundations with powerful impact measurement tools that have the potential to revolutionize the way they assess and enhance their grantmaking efforts. These tools enable foundations to collect and analyze valuable data from their grantees, ushering in a new era of project assessment and overall impact evaluation. Foundations that embrace impact investing, a powerful strategy for generating positive social and financial returns, often grapple with the complexities of managing these investments and, through our partnership with Amp Impact, foundations can track assets, assess social and economic returns, and effectively manage portfolios.

Manual reporting and compliance

Foundations often struggle to generate dynamic reports and ensure that grantee and impact data is safe and secure. Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud is a dynamic solution that not only streamlines reporting processes but also ensures adherence to compliance requirements, addressing foundational needs precisely.

What our clients are saying

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
I definitely want to work with Fíonta again. The value they provided exceeded my expectations. Great design, scalable solutions, timely turnaround, and appropriate risk management are just a few reasons why I prefer Fíonta over other partners. They finished on time and within budget, too! Achievement Network
They demonstrated an understanding of nonprofit needs and displayed a willingness to accommodate our budget and schedule. All of the staff...were incredibly professional and knowledgeable about Salesforce. I enjoyed the time the database engineer took to understand our particular Salesforce instance. I'd recommend Fíonta to everyone! Institute for Policy Studies
Fíonta was absolutely committed to make sure we had durable products for our most urgent and important needs. Immigrants Rising
Our consultant asked the right questions to ensure we were always tackling and prioritizing a critical problem, and often gave us options and a heads-up regarding potential project overruns and unexpected areas when there wasn’t enough information to forecast issues more precisely. We LOVE working with them and plan on engaging them further. Innovations for Poverty Action
We were completely unfamiliar with Salesforce and how we could fully utilize it. The team was instrumental in keeping the project on track by providing a full scope of work, making suggestions, timely budget updates, addressing any questions, and providing solutions to issues or training when necessary.
