What did Junior Achievement of Northern California need?

Norman helped Junior Achievement of Northern California set up their Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system to track their donor, volunteer, and constituent database needs more effectively.

Why is this project important?

Junior Achievement of Northern California provides financial literacy, workforce readiness, and entrepreneurship programming to K-12 students across 26 counties. Our mission is to inspire and prepare youth to succeed in a global economy and our vision is that all youth are connected to economic opportunity and career pathways. Having a user friendly, efficient, and forward thinking database to manage our donors and partners is critical to our mission and helping us serve 90K students per year.

This project will save us $10,792, allowing us to spend more time on fundraising to raise important funds for our mission to serve students.
