A customized database built on Salesforce, which is the right platform for the foreseeable future.


Salesforce is solid.  It’s so large (2020 revenue $17B) it’s unlikely to be acquired.  It has a long-term commitment to nonprofits and an owner who intends to stay put.  It leads the industry in size and features.  It is hugely flexible and has the largest list of integrations with other providers (like email, accounting, online payments).  And it stays on top of security threats.

An online database that your staff can access from anywhere.
