Salesforce NPSP aggregates the whole organization’s information into one system making program management, fundraising, volunteer management, mass communication, reporting etc easily achievable. Organization gets better insights into the member base and is able to view trends, simultaneously automating communications to make donor to outreach the organization more efficiently, timely and more targeted.

It provides five standard types of Donations namely Donation, Major Gift, Grant, Matching Donation, Membership and organization can create unique type of sales process for each one of them.
Extending functionality of Salesforce by customizing NPSP model:
As the Salesforce Non-profit starter pack (NPSP) is an open sourced software package with developer contributions, we can extend its functionality by customizing existing NPSP Data Model. Standard relationships can be modified or new ones can be added as per the business requirements e.g. we can add relationship for a guardian and child.
This way, we can use Salesforce NPSP to help nonprofit organizations engage constituents by enabling a 360-degree view of their organization.
