Our Contribution

Seeding Labs is a non-profit organization, founded in 2008 and based in Boston, the USA. It equips scientists with tools and resources to nurture their talent and help the global moment. They have been receiving donations for a very long time. Even though they were using Salesforce for their day-to-day operations, they could not track the impact of donations (both in terms of equipment and money). Our team volunteered 250 hours to help them deploy “Donor Impact Reporting” to Production. They could generate 2 reports: Donor with Country Impact and Donor with Recipients. It helped them recognize the contribution of each donor and its impact and helped them promote more donations.

Pledge 1% resonates with our core principles. Therefore, it was time to join the global moment, empowering companies to become a force for good. As we grow, we hope to incorporate new and holistic initiatives to bring change and positively affect the society we live and thrive in. These are tough times and we’re doing our bit.
