About Valhalla Foundation

Valhalla Foundation

Valhalla is a private foundation that focuses on early childhood development, K-12 education, data science, medical research, environmental innovation, and collaborative philantropy.

In response to Salesforce’s announcement of the end of support for foundationConnect, Valhalla Foundation faced a critical decision regarding its grants management system. With a preference for staying within the Salesforce ecosystem, Valhalla sought guidance from Sputnik Moment to navigate this transition and identify the optimal path forward.

"Sputnik Moment was extremely helpful in helping us successfully navigate the transition from foundationConnect. They helped Valhalla Foundation identify an approach that preserved our existing data, workflows, and integrations, while also minimizing costs and disruptions. Sputnik also completed the migration ahead of schedule and on budget. We couldn't be happier with the outcome of this project"
