A Salesforce Nonprofit Community Pro Bono Event

Join Arkus for free online workshops and consulting sessions as part of our next semi-annual Pro Bono Day on Wednesday, September 15th, 2021. This time, we're focusing on ways to ease the accidental admin workload, easy automations for NPSP, and common nonprofit record types. Not a Salesforce user yet, but thinking about becoming one? This is for you too. 

What to Expect at Pro Bono Day 

Start with demos and workshops and stick around for a free Ask-the-Expert session where you will have dedicated time to meet with an Arkus expert. Whether you're considering a move to Salesforce or you're already an admin, get answers to your toughest Salesforce questions during the individual sessions. You will receive a link to the one-to-one sign up after registering here. 

Sustainability & Our Impact

To celebrate our community and do more to give back, this time we're having trees planted for registrants and attendees. We're coordinating to have 1 tree planted for every person who registers for this event, another 3 trees planted for each registrant who logs on to become an attendee, and 5 more trees for each attendee who takes a moment to share feedback in a quick survey after the sessions wrap. We appreciate you being a part of this event and helping to make it a success.  

More About the Sessions 

Log on as works with your schedule and come for all or only some of the sessions. Sessions are designed to be valuable to a range of experience levels, from experienced admins to new users, even executives taking their first look. Content is specifically nonprofit focused and applicable to your everyday Salesforce needs. 

Arkus experts will provide remote real-time consultations on automation, architecture, integration, configuration, security, data loading help, and all things Salesforce. Make sure your sandbox login is ready. Experts will not write or alter code or make major changes in Production.

Attendees must be employees of a 501c(3) nonprofit organization. The unique link sent to you after registration will get you access to all the workshops.

The link to complete the sign up for the individual sessions will be sent in your confirmation email after registering on this page and more details about that process included on that quick form. Save your seat, space is limited.
