As Spelhaug articulates it, “Addressing inequality, eliminating poverty, and protecting the planet are all in a day’s work for nonprofits, yet these organizations face the constant pressure to do more with less.”

Nonprofits Need Tailored Solutions

Nonprofits often rely on inefficient methods like manual data entry and spreadsheets to track their progress and manage their donor relationships. This makes it difficult to get a clear picture of where they stand and how they can best allocate their resources.

That is why it’s so important for partnering organizations to develop solutions that are tailored to the challenges of nonprofit organizations specifically. There may be some similarities in regards to the challenges nonprofits face in comparison to for-profit businesses, but for the most part, nonprofits exist in a very unique position.

So unique in fact, that it necessitated the development of a common data model specific to nonprofits, which forms the basis for Microsoft’s Cloud for Nonprofit platform.

“Microsoft Cloud for Nonprofit is underpinned by a Common Data Model for Nonprofits, making it easier and less expensive for partners to innovate, and for nonprofits to integrate with existing solutions and share data across the organization,” says Spelhaug.

The article also touches on the Microsoft #BuildFor2030 initiative, which is geared toward addressing the Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations. We here at MISSION CRM are proud to be a part of that initiative and we firmly believe that our software can play a role in helping nonprofits achieve those goals.
