Dynamics 365 Accelerator: Nonprofit

Dynamics 365 Accelerator: Nonprofit

The nonprofit accelerator for Dynamics 365 is a quick way for you to get a Dataverse environment up and running that has been customized for the nonprofit industry.

What is an Industry Accelerator?
An Industry Accelerator is a pre-configured package that allows an organization to implement some configuration and customization items into a CRM system to save on design and build time by using tables, fields, views and relationships that are common to a specific industry.

How does this impact you? Well, to start, it means less of your time building the customized pieces you need and lets you get started right way using some of this design. Also, it’s free with any Dynamics 365 and any additional licenses needed. Free is always a bonus! This gives you an excellent framework to start from for any entity (table) that is a good fit.

This accelerator leverages Power Apps (with model-driven apps), a mobile app, an integration with Finance & Operations and dashboards. For full use and functionality, you’ll of course need to ensure proper licensing for all areas.

Some of the core tables for the nonprofit accelerator includes:

  • Donation management
  • Fundraising
