InsideSales.com Donates to Utah National Parks Council of the Boy Scouts of America
PROVO, UT, Sep 17, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
InsideSales.com, Inc., the leading cloud-based provider of sales
automation and analytics for inside sales professionals, today
announced it has selected the Utah National Parks Council of the Boy
Scouts of America as the annual recipient of its 1/1/1 Do Good
Foundation program in 2012, the third donation of its kind by
InsideSales.com and its employees.
"We do a large annual project that benefits our local community,
focuses on youth, and leverages the work of our employees and our
technology," said Dave Elkington, CEO and founder. "Each year we get
a little larger in our overall donation because it is a percentage of
our revenues. Our model is after the one started by Marc Benioff of
salesforce.com. We take 1 percent of our revenue, 1 percent of our
labor, and 1 percent of our product for a year and select a cause
that we feel will most benefit the youth or the underprivileged in
our own backyard."
InsideSales.com has helped with a fundraiser for a small private
university and a local women's shelter in its past annual events. In
addition, the employees at InsideSales.com are often helping at local
charity gardens, serving at soup kitchens, and implementing
technology for schoolchildren.
"The resources provided by InsideSales.com will greatly help with the
efforts to begin the rebuild and improvement of Camp Maple Dell as
well as to enhance the technology we use for our overall fundraising
campaigns," said David Pack, the Scout Executive of the Utah National
Parks Council. "We are confident that InsideSales.com will be the
first of many local companies stepping forward to help improve the
scouting experience for the young people in our Council and are
grateful for their example."
With 81,000 youth and 43,000 adult volunteers, the Utah National
Parks Council is the largest Council in the United States. Close to
2500 Eagle Scouts come out of the Council annually, the largest
number in the US.
"We decided to lead out with a corporate donation. Coupled with labor
and our flagship PowerDialer and lead management database technology
we plan to empower the Council with resources to help with the rest
of their fundraising projects. We encourage other companies to do the
same," stated Ken Krogue, President and co- founder. "Many of the
Council camps are in a state of disrepair. Our employees grew up
going to Camp Maple Dell, swimming in the pool and camping under the
many pavilions. These structures are 60 years old, and many have been
condemned and need to be completely rebuilt. This benefits thousands
of young people annually and for decades to come and is where we want
to put our resources."
