One of the reasons I joined salesforce.com was because of their amazing philanthropic model. Salesforce.com encourages us to donate 1% of our working time to the community. In fact, salesforce.com even created an internal app to help employees find the perfect activity. I'm happy to announce we released a new and improved version of our volunteer management app, available for free on the AppExchange.Volunteerforce

Introducing Volunteerforce! With Volunteerforce, you can start managing your company's volunteering impact. Some of the features include:

  • Quickly enter volunteer organizations and activities
  • Provide your employees with a customizable search page to find the perfect event
  • Mass sign-up employees to specific events
  • Report and measure employee and company volunteering hours

Best of all, Volunteerforce is built 100% on Force.com. It leverages many powerful features of Force.com including Apex Code, Visualforce Pages and Email Templates, Reporting, and much more….

We have released Volunteerforce as an unmanaged package to let you see how it was built. This means when you install the app, all of the source code is available.

Install it today for free and see an example of a complete app built on Force.com. Plus, it's good for your karma.

    It is very exciting to hear that salesforce.com has released Volunteerforce, for a company to manage their volunteering impact. Navatar’s association with nonprofits has been long and deep – complex salesforce implementations at nonprofits such as AARP, United Way, Girls Inc, Council On Accreditation, Points of Light Foundation, participation in the salesforce.com Foundation Power of Us program, as well as my own role on the Board of United Way in New Delhi and in India overall. Volunteerforce will be great for companies no doubt – it will also help nonprofits as more companies provide better mechanisms to help engage their employees in Volunteering activities.
    Great step in the right direction!
