Acteva and Salesforce.com Help the National Council on Aging and Other Nonprofits Leverage Cloud Computing to Grow Their Communities
SAN FRANCISCO and WASHINGTON, April 14, 2009 — Acteva, the trusted leader in on-demand event registration, ticketing and payment management services, and the Salesforce.com Foundation, the global leader in integrating philanthropy and business, today announced Acteva's involvement in the Salesforce.com Foundation's "Power of Us" Partner Program. The objective of the ambitious and groundbreaking corporate philanthropy program is to provide salesforce.com partners with a simple and scalable model to make high impact contributions to their communities through a donation of time, equity, and products to nonprofits who need their expertise.
Leading nonprofits such as the National Council on Aging (NCOA), based in Washington D.C., are already using ActevaRSVP for Salesforce CRM to create and send event invitations to their Salesforce database, capture event registrations online and update Salesforce campaigns. "NCOA works with thousands of organizations across the country to help seniors find jobs and benefits, improve their health, live independently and remain active in their communities; ActevaRSVP makes event management easy and with its integration to Salesforce CRM, our knowledge base of individuals' interests and event attendance grows automatically with each event and is accessible for future campaigns," said Stuart Spector, Senior Vice President, NCOA.
Acteva has developed two special nonprofit editions of ActevaRSVP to address the event registration needs of the salesforce.com nonprofit community. The ActevaRSVP Nonprofit StarterPack Edition, a unique offering, is $149.00 for a full year of service and includes one organizer user, one event per month and up to 5,000 emails per month. The ActevaRSVP Nonprofit Enterprise Edition, a deeply discounted version of ActevaRSVP Enterprise, is $780.00 per year and includes up to five organizer users, an unlimited number of events per month, and up to 15,000 emails per month. Both editions include unlimited event registrations and unlimited phone and email support.
In addition to donating products and related services, Acteva's employees will continue to volunteer for nonprofit organizations, including activities organized by the Salesforce.com Foundation.
"Acteva has a ten year history of supporting the nonprofit community and believes in the ideals of integrative philanthropy," commented Ed Lemire, Acteva's Executive Vice President. "In fact, forty percent of our 14,000 customers are nonprofits and associations. We look forward to continuing this tradition of service alongside the Salesforce.com Foundation."
"The Salesforce.com Foundation's Power of Us initiative allows our partners like Acteva to join with us in implementing our 1/1/1 integrated philanthropy model to have an even greater impact on the nonprofit community," said Suzanne DiBianca, executive director at the Salesforce.com Foundation. "We applaud Acteva for contributing its products, services and employee time to our nonprofit customers who can benefit from Acteva's event registration technology."

The Salesforce.com Foundation mentors companies to successfully incorporate salesforce.com's 1/1/1 integrated corporate philanthropy model - 1% time, equity, or product - so that they too can "do well, while doing good."
