Navigating foundationConnect’s Sunset: Key Considerations for Foundations Going Forward

By Marisa Lopez  

We live in a rapidly changing world, with technology at the forefront of constant innovation and improvement. This presents opportunities and challenges.

In 2023, it was announced that Salesforce will be retiring foundationConnect on January 31, 2026, and subscriptions are no longer renewable after January 31, 2025. With this in mind, grantmakers must prepare to make a transition. Now is the right time to push forward into the future with even more innovative and responsive technology solutions.

The team at Agile Cloud Consulting is here to support grantmakers through the impending transition. With deep ties to the foundationConnect product and philanthropic community, we are here to serve as a trusted advisor as we navigate this transition together.

Agile Cloud Consulting emerged following the successful acquisition of roundCorner, the parent company of the foundationConnect product, by Salesforce in 2019. Stuart Longley, now serving as the Chief Revenue Officer at Agile Cloud Consulting, previously held the role of General Manager for foundationConnect from 2013 to 2019. Post-acquisition, he transitioned to spearheading the go-to-market strategy at Salesforce, sustaining his commitment to the nonprofit technology sector.

Another driving force at Agile Cloud Consulting is Marisa Lopez, who assumes the role of Account Manager. Marisa’s extensive experience spans more than 15 years in the Salesforce Nonprofit ecosystem. Throughout her tenure, she collaborated closely with grantmakers, including foundationConnect customers.

Further fortifying Agile Cloud Consulting’s foundation are numerous seasoned professionals who previously contributed to the success of foundationConnect at roundCorner. Collectively, we bring a wealth of experience and insight into the entire product lifecycle of foundationConnect.

As always, the team at Agile Cloud Consulting is here to serve the amazing grantmaking organizations making change in the world. Throughout 2024, we will be sharing resources to help grant makers navigate this transition, so stay tuned for more.
