Fundraising with salesforce and snow goose for uk charities from daddydonkeylabs Howard Lake | 1 September 2014 | News AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis Tagged with: data Salesforce Technology Snow Goose is a new tool for fundraisers that use Salesforce, designed to allow them to import and aggregate the data they receive from online fundraising platforms.Although fundraising platforms such as Virgin Money Giving, JustGiving, and CAF have always provided an export of all data, some charities have found it difficult to merge data with their own supporter data, especially when they receive them in different export formats with different field titles. Consequently, many fundraisers have found that it was very difficult to analyse and exploit the data for further fundraising.Snow Goose has been developed to resolve this. It enables fundraisers to accept raw export files from fundraising platforms, and then to import them into their own Salesforce-based donor database. In the process it performs data manipulation to match, cleanse, and update records held. Data export files can be imported whenever the charity receives them. It imports data on donations, donors and fundraisers – those using the fundraising platforms for their fundraising event or challenge.Part of the import process includes highlighting any exceptions, where records appear to match an existing supporter, and which the charity administrator can then choose to match or they can go on to create a new record for them.Snow Goose already accepts file imports from JustGiving, Virgin Money Giving, BT MyDonate and Everyday Hero. Founder Stony Grunow told UK Fundraising that additional platforms are being added on request.Snow Goose only works with Salesforce, so charities who do not use Salesforce will not be able to benefit from it. That said, some charities have kept their existing database and complemented it with Salesforce plus Snow Goose as the donation import database.Any charity can use Salesforce: the Salesforce Foundation donates 10 licenses to charities.PricingSnow Goose is available as a 30 day free trial. Thereafter, there is no recurring payment required, and once imported the data remains freely accessible.Instead Snow Goose charges charities only for the actual processing and importing of their data on a per-donation basis, at a price per donation ranging from 20p to 5p, depending on the volume.Charities can purchase Snow Goose directly, or from any one of the Salesforce consulting partners that are also Snow Goose resellers. Snow Goose offers data integration from multiple fundraising platforms Snow Goose presentation Advertisement 66 total views, 1 views today AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to LinkedInLinkedInShare to EmailEmailShare to WhatsAppWhatsAppShare to MessengerMessengerShare to MoreAddThis About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur.

April 21, 2020 /Sports News – National Tom Brady asked to leave Tampa park closed because of COVID-19 Tom Brady may have won six Super Bowls, but like the rest of us, he’s just trying to find a place to work out. Tampa mayor @JaneCastor said in today’s briefing that a @tampaparksrec employee approached a man working out downtown and told him the park was closed. It was @TomBrady. pic.twitter.com/etrPdrrGsN— JennaLaineESPN (@JennaLaineESPN) April 20, 2020Tampa’s mayor Jane Castor relayed the sighting to St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman during a Facebook Live video call on Monday and prefaced with “I’m not one to gossip” but said, “I gotta tell you this story.”“Our parks are closed down and so a lot of our parks staff they patrol around to make sure that people aren’t doing contact sports and things and saw an individual working out in one of our downtown parks and she went over to tell him that it was closed. And it was Tom Brady,” Castor said. “So he has been sighted.”The former New England Patriots star quarterback had to call an audible on his workout routine for the afternoon once he was asked to leave.The city’s parks and recreation department later took to Twitter to clear up any confusion with Castor’s initial retelling of what happened, noting that Brady was “sighted” and not “cited.” FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailAl Powers / ESPN ImagesBy KELLY MCCARTHY, ABC News(TAMPA, Fla.) — Even a six-time Super Bowl champion who’s new in town can’t get around citywide social-distancing measures amid the coronavirus pandemic.A Tampa parks employee spotted “an individual working out” and went to let him know that the park was in fact closed, without realizing that the man in question was none other than the city’s newest resident and incoming Buccaneers quarterback, Tom Brady. Beau Lund SIGHTED! To clear up any confusion, @Buccaneers QB @TomBrady was SIGHTED in one of our 194 beautiful parks. He was not cited as some media outlets have reported.We are excited to welcome Tom & everyone back to all of our parks once we have punted COVID-19 downfield! pic.twitter.com/EH13MmlAgx— City of Tampa (@CityofTampa) April 21, 2020The City of Tampa also tweeted out a message to the football legend who is preparing for the upcoming 2020 NFL season.“Sorry Tom Brady! Our Tampa Parks Rec team can’t wait to welcome you and our entire community back with even bigger smiles — until then, stay safe and stay home as much as you can to help flatten the curve,” the city said on Twitter.With so many major sports events impacted by the global pandemic, including the NFL offseason, and with professional workout facilities closed, athletes have had to adjust their training regimen to workout at their homes and come up with temporary alternatives.Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

As football seasons go, 2017-18 worked out according to my plan.I’m New England born, and earned a degree at The University of Alabama. So another Super Bowl appearance by Tom Brady and another national title for the Crimson Tide made for successful campaigns for this casual fan, who played exactly one season of organized football as a freshman for the St. Peter’s Catholic Boys High School Midshipmen in 1968.There, I started at offensive guard — at 127 pounds — for a team that didn’t win a game in the state’s smallest school classification at a school that closed the following year. We were the worst of the smallest. But that tibial plateau fracture had no effect on his big heart or his social conscience. The four-time Pro Bowler dedicated himself to the continuing task of tending to those who suffered from the ill effects of Hurricane and Tropical Storm Harvey. Thanks to his injury and long recovery period, he’s had time to dedicate himself not only to raising funds — his initial goal was $200,000, his total was $37 million — but also to distributing help.He was doing just that on Jan. 25, when he visited Jireh World Church, a non-denominational congregation at 3505 Procter St., Port Arthur. Pastored for a decade by Pearlanna Carron, it had the look of a “working church” that day, with focus on those who needed a hand.It was far from the big city news media; the only folks to notice his arrival and hard work were church volunteers and those who needed the groceries delivered by Watt’s favored social service group, South East Texas Food Bank. We learned about the visit when a local official sent out his photo, taken with Watt, at Jireh World Church. We arrived after he’d gone.Carron said she’s a Watt fan, too, and not necessarily because he sacks quarterbacks.She’s a fan, she said, because he’s a sweet guy, someone who wasn’t looking for external gratification or awards when he showed up for 90 minutes at Jireh, as he has at places all over Houston and beyond. Instead, he took part in the distribution of food, chatted with flood victims, took selfies with anyone who asked. He gave of his time and himself.I thought of that visit Saturday night, when Watt, as well spoken off the gridiron as he is fearsome on it, accepted the Walter Payton NFL Man of the year award in Minneapolis. The award reflected the good work of Watt and his foundation for hurricane and flood relief. Watt, in accepting the honor, made the award about Walter Payton, a Hall of Fame runningback and better human being, about the first-responders who helped during Harvey flooding, about the donors who funded the cause, about the flood victims themselves.But consider this: In lending help, Watt didn’t just drop off a check. He showed up to meet people and offer solace.He helped plot a plan that will extend up to two years to make sure the money goes to the right places. He’s not walking away from the cause.After his Port Arthur visit, Watt tweeted out that he’d “met some truly special people today and am extremely thankful for all of the volunteers and helpers who make things like this happen.”Those truly special people met a special guy, too.“People helping people,” Watt tweeted. “There is nothing more beautiful.”Beat that.Ken Stickney is editor of the Port Arthur News. As a fan, I attended the first-ever Patriots game at Schaefer Stadium more than four decades back, a pre-season matchup where we spent four hours in the parking lot after the televised Sunday night game. The stadium was so far behind construction schedule there were no working restrooms and there were no lines painted in the parking lot, creating a massive, post-midnight traffic jam. Tom Brady was yet unborn.All of which is preamble to this: I’m a J.J. Watt fan now.No, I’ve never followed Wisconsin, his alma mater, except in relation to the school’s effect on Alabama’s standing. Before moving to Jefferson County, I’d never followed the Houston Texans.As for J.J. Watt, there was too little chance to watch the jumbo lineman play this year. In week No. 5, he sustained a brutal leg injury that ended his season. I’ve had a lot more success watching football than taking the field.My three semesters in residence in Bama’s graduate school included coach “Bear” Bryant’s last two national championships. As a reporter I covered Bear’s burial in Birmingham’s Elmwood Cemetery on a cold January day in 1983.Beat that. read more
