I’m sure you’ve all heard of #GivingTuesday, the annual giving day that takes place the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This year it will be on November 27. Perhaps you’ve participated in the past and it’s been successful, or maybe it wasn’t. Perhaps you’re planning to participate for the first time. Whether you participate or not, #GivingTuesday is now part of the nonprofit landscape and if you’re doing a year-end appeal, you’ll need to factor it into your campaign.

The Wayfair Ruling: What this Sales Tax Case Means for Nonprofits

Article | February 18, 2020

A landmark ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2018 dramatically expanded the ability of states to impose sales tax collection obligations on out-of-state organizations that sell goods and services within their boundaries. Since then, state legislatures and municipalities have scrambled to pass laws targeting organizations that lack a physical presence in their jurisdictions. Some of these laws could ensnare nonprofits that make taxable sales to those states — even if similar sales aren’t taxable in their home states. Ticket sales, online auctions, cloud-based transactions (for example, webinars, telemedicine and app sales) all might fall within another state’s definition of taxable sales, as well as more obvious sales such as those of CDs and hard-copy publications.

New Nonprofit Board Leadership: 3 Ways to Empower Your Board

Article | February 13, 2020

7 Benefits of Salesforce Nonprofit Cloud’s New Program Management Module

Article | June 4, 2020

Salesforce.org has just released a whole slew of new products and feature enhancements that have generated a lot of excitement here at Vera. One of these, the Program Management Module (PMM), has been in the works for a while – we are delighted to see it brought to life and hope it helps many more nonprofits realize the benefits of using Salesforce for program management. On the surface, the PMM may sound redundant or even competitive with Amp Impact – in fact, it’s quite the opposite. Whereas Amp Impact offers a portfolio management and portfolio-level impact measurement solution (using logframes, indicators, targets, and results), the PMM is focused on tracking individual beneficiaries and their engagement with programs and services. For organizations working across multiple geographies, tracking at both of these levels is crucial, and data can automatically ‘roll up’ from the PMM objects into Amp Impact’s Indicators and Results.
