Salesforce for Sports Foundations
We work with sports organisations of every size and type, over the last few years we have worked with Football Foundations, The Premier League Charitable Fund which is a very large grant making foundation, and helped many other organisations scale their work through using Salesforce technology to have more engaging conversations with fans. Automating their work, and enabling them to raise more for their foundations.
We are a Platinum and Summit Partner which are the two highest tiers within the Salesforce eco-system. We also hold the most certifications possible for nonprofit, grant making and foundation Salesforce technology.
Over the past few years we have worked closely with Sports Foundations and understand the key areas that matter to you. You want to be able to fundraise easily, track your supporters, impact and make gifting grants easy to do.
You want to be able to pull reports at the click of a button to measure your impact, enabling you to make data driven decisions.
We understand the challenges you face, often being a small team of passionate people needing solutions to make your time more effective.
Cirrico have implemented Salesforce for all sizes and types of Sports Foundations, and we are excited to speak to you about how we can help.
A single view of all data in one place
Cirrico are experts in enabling your different teams to have access to the data you hold, to make the best strategic decisions. We will work with you to enable your teams to align different sets of supporter, customer and fan data to analyse, forecast and scale your foundation’s performance.
Simplify the application process to win foundation grants, or make grants
Cirrico can help grant-makers customise grant applications based on the unique requirements for each funding opportunity easily. For any grants, grant-makers can send customised invitations to organisations they think would be a good fit. If you’re applying for grants within your organisation, Nonprofit Success Pack allows you to tag your colleagues to get their input in the opportunity in Salesforce which gives you a better chance of being successful.
Nonprofit Success Pack allows you to fundraise in innovative and clever ways using the power of Salesforce to ensure that you can do everything in one place. It allows you to track all of your opportunities, to-do list, set reminders and tag your colleagues to collaborate easily.
It also allows you to track all donations in one portal and provides a full view which allows you to understand the opportunities for growth within your data. It allows you to run reports easily and also ensure you have the power to make data driven decisions and use your resources to grow your organisations impact, rather than making decisions based on qualitative data that isn’t always accurate.
Automate your Gift-Aid
We have the ability to automate your organisations fundraising functions, and GiftAid is one of those areas. We are able to automate the process saving you countless hours across your fundraising team.
Improve the user experience
Depending on what type of sports organisation you are, we have a solution to enable the work you do to be far more enjoyable for the user.
For individuals, finding and applying for grants takes away vital time and resources from delivering on their mission. Cirrico can make it easy for the organisations or individuals you’d like to support to find and apply for funding opportunities, making it easy for your teams to manage the grants and community outreach work. In addition enabling you to report on the way in which you use data to drive decision making moving forward with your team and board.
Making grants easily is important to foundations we speak to, we understand that you need to make the application process as easy as possible. Gathering the important information on how an organisation wants to create impact, in addition make the gift easily, then report on it effectively and efficiently with the charity or community group.
Some of the technology involved

Other features that are included but require setting up are:

- Allowing volunteers to sign up for shifts via the website

It also allows you to sell tickets to online events and easily see the attendees in one 360 view.

Certain fundraising tasks are being carried out manually when they could be automatically performed, such as GiftAid or donor thanking.
Difficulty viewing various stages of the application process.
Paper-based and in-person reports which results in time consuming updates.
Lack of visibility of the organisations opportunities.
Disconnected funding systems.
Difficulty reporting impact when it comes to communicating with donors.
