Springboard helps nonprofits catalyze support for their cause. Built by technologists who think like marketers (that’s us), we designed Springboard to power the best ideas in digital marketing. You’ll find Springboard to be an open, complete online marketing platform that offers rich online experiences to your supporters, while capturing all the data you need to make smart decisions.
The Springboard Story
Back in 2008, we saw a need for nonprofit technology that was wide open to possibility. We put our decades of experience as nonprofit marketers and our strong client partnerships to work and built Springboard: a complete digital engagement platform that powers online marketing, fundraising and advocacy and is natively integrated with Salesforce.
The result is a versatile, modern, open digital engagement platform that balances ease of use with flexibility and gives organizations complete control over their supporter experiences and their data.

Our Philosophy: The Springboard Difference
Honesty and integrity are core values here at Jackson River. We manifest this in our work with clients and in the Springboard platform. We’re committed to:
From conversations with clients to code commits, we always offer our clients the ability to see for themselves what is going on behind the scenes.
We believe it’s critical that Springboard is integrated into our clients’ other systems and that data flows seamlessly. That’s why the platform features many built-in integrations, ever-extending APIs, and the possibility for custom integrations, too.
We believe that your data is yours. Period. We give you easy access to extract it, provide regular backups, and also give you self-serve data download capabilities, out of the box.
We develop Springboard to advance our clients missions. Your ideas and direct input get incorporated into our roadmap, and all Springboard clients benefit from new feature development.
Open to Possibility
At Jackson River, innovation and ideation are part of our DNA. We are always exploring the possibilities to stay in front of the rapidly-changing digital landscape, and we always apply what we learn to help our clients and develop Springboard.
More About Springboard
Early in 2012 we began planning for an upgrade to Springboard 4. We knew that we were going to have to be ready to bring people onto the latest Drupal stack (Drupal 7) and also that our product, though serving our clients well, would be due for its next round of improvements and expansions. This is an ever-changing business, after all, and we love seeing our clients push the envelope with their plans for engaging supporters and raising money. So, we took some time to carefully think through the opportunities before us and came up with the following, which are all built into our newest version, Springboard 4.
Springboard is a modern fundraising and marketing platform that combines ease of use and flexibility to support your marketing strategies:
- It's a powerful form management system giving you control over your supporter and donor experiences
- It plugs into Salesforce for CRM as well as a host of email marketing providers for email communications and marketing automation.
In short, it connects the dots between your supporter interactions, their social behaviors and the campaigns and efforts that drive them to interact with you or on your behalf. It combines that important data so you can see how people are responding to your efforts and make smart marketing decisions.
