We have a fabulous team at KELL Partners – some may call us geeks, [and we’re ok with that] but we like to call our team members superheroes. This regular series will highlight a KELL team member. This post will focus on one of our Senior Project Managers, Adam Kramer.
What’s your favorite thing about working with nonprofits?
My favorite thing about working with nonprofits is being able to help improve the efficiency, systems, and eventually the missions of all the different causes I support. There are so many nonprofits out there that I want to thrive that it's great that I get to work with so many different ones at once.
Why do you enjoy working with Salesforce?
With thousands of hours under my belt, I’ve implemented Salesforce for nonprofits for more than 5 years. I’ve consulted with hundreds of people and analyzed countless nonprofit system processes. I’ve watched the remarkable way in which Salesforce has helped them improve their fundraising and their "back office", and my former life as a nonprofit staffer gives me the perspective of the end user when working with clients.
Specifically, I love helping organizations leverage the Nonprofit Starter Pack’s (NPSP). I came to the Salesforce world as a nonprofit user and intimately understand why the Nonprofit Starter Pack is such a vital resource. While there are many great alternatives, I love how easily I can configure and customize the NPSP to match my clients various needs.
Do you volunteer with any nonprofits? Why those organizations?
I don't have a specific favorite cause but human rights, environmental, and education rights groups are towards the top. I've volunteered for Habitat for Humanity and various environmental, prison reform, and educational nonprofits throughout the years.
