West Monroe Partners provided pro-bono support to Seattle based non-profit, Code.org, to build a direct donorship model onto their website. Code.org is a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding participation in computer science education by adding computer programming into the “core” of US education. As you can imagine, being a relatively new start-up (founded in 2012), the success of Code.org is heavily reliant upon generous donors, corporate sponsors and educational advisors. Prior to this project, Code.org did not have a systematic way of tracking relationships with these key individuals.
By using Salesforce.com, West Monroe Partners was able to help Code.org manage their donor and partner relationships. They now have a useful tool for donor, sponsor and advisory contact information, relationship history, and advocacy. “We are excited about the opportunities this new platform will provide us in our pursuit to build better, stronger, more meaningful relationships with those donors and partners that are so critical to our success,” said Michelle Page, Director of Finance & Administration of Code.org.
Code.org reached out to us directly based on their knowledge of our firm. Personally, I couldn’t be happier to be involved in a project like this for Code.org. My professional career and experiences have proven how important Computer Science is and the need will only continue to grow with the advancement of technology. Educating students early and getting them exposed to these excellent opportunities will help this growing industry need and present great opportunities for their future careers. I’m proud that we were able to play a tiny role in that.
