The Future of Volunteer Management

Here at Golden, we believe in a world where...

  • Data flows automatically into your primary source of truth (aka Salesforce!) in real-time
  • You don't do any data entry, and instead spend time and energy on scaling your program
  • Your entire organization can access a complete profile and engagement history for all your supporters - contact info, volunteer history, donation history - all in one place...automatically
  • Your Salesforce has more data than ever before in order to get the full power out of all your tools (Marketing Cloud, Pardot, Tableau and more...)

So how do we manifest this utopian future? By empowering your volunteer team with Golden's award-winning volunteer management tools on top of Salesforce.

Salesforce is incredibly powerful on its own, but when it comes to managing volunteers, volunteer coordinators demand a best-in-class solutions that meets their standards. Golden's  integration permits Salesforce users to focus on recruiting and retaining volunteers, rather than recording the minutiae of data themselves.
