Stroke Foundation

Helping to implement a CRM that delivers on Stroke Foundation’s vision to change the lives of Australians.

Out with the old CRM, in with the new.

The Stroke Foundation had a siloed fundraising CRM system and multiple spreadsheets that created workflow inefficiencies and impacted data integrity. It was affecting partner relationships and fundraising opportunities.

By implementing Salesforce, the Stroke Foundation transformed 20 years of fundraising data by creating an environment where there was a single source of truth.

With a fundraising database that wasn’t integrated into other areas of the business and a series of spreadsheets utilised by diff erent teams for donor engagement and reporting, as you can imagine this meant we had data integrity issues. Our business goal was to implement a sophisticated CRM system to alleviate our data issues and enhance our fundraising capabilities. NobleCX, as an expert in the not-for-profi t space and cloud specialists, understood our charity’s needs. NobleCX helped us move from multiple, legacy information capturing and donor management systems to the recommended platform, Salesforce.

Salesforce transforms partner relationships and fundraising capabilities.

Stroke Foundation approached NobleCX upon a recommendation, to consolidate its systems and processes by implementing Salesforce for its Marketing and Fundraising division.

NobleCX worked closely with the stakeholders at Stroke Foundation to ensure a clear understanding of the project requirements as well as the short-term and long-term goals.

Implementing Salesforce enabled the Stroke Foundation to track and measure in real time, fundraise more with valuable insights on donors and provide a 360-view of partner relationships.
