Case Studies: Global Citizen Year & MAZON
FormAssembly’s users range from individuals placing simple contact forms on their websites to Fortune 500 companies streamlining their business processes and everything in between. Today we’re going to highlight two nonprofit organizations using FormAssembly. FormAssembly has a number of nonprofit users from all over the world, each using FormAssembly to serve the unique needs of their own organizations.
Global Citizen Year
Global Citizen Year uses cross-sector partnerships to recruit and train a diverse corps of emerging leaders and supports them as apprentices across Asia, Africa and Latin America. These apprenticeships take place during a “bridge year” between high school and college.
Global Citizen Year has been using FromAssembly since September of 2009, and in that time they have transitioned to using FormAssembly web forms throughout their site. Global Citizen Year uses FormAssembly web forms to facilitate everything from their online application process, to newsletter sign ups, to collecting online donations. Salesforce integration has enabled the organization to significantly cut back on the amount of time staff spend printing and entering data, and FormAssembly’s flexible branding capabilities enabled Global Citizen Year to build a fully-branded, Salesforce integrated online application without spending the time and money to build a full-scale web portal.

MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger
MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger is a nonprofit organization dedicated to preventing and alleviating hunger among people of all faiths and backgrounds. MAZON started using FormAssembly in October 2010, just before they began a new grant application cycle. With just a little help from consultants at Exponent Partners, they were able to quickly setup their application web form and integrate it with Salesforce. Salesforce integration ensured that all grant proposals, associated contacts, and attachments were available in Salesforce immediately, overcoming an historic problem MAZON had faced in previous rounds. MAZON gave applicants a headstart by prefilling existing Salesforce contact information in the form, allowing applicants to “spend less time filling in applications and more time feeding hungry people.” (Ed Yerke-Robins, Donor Relations & Communications Specialist)
