Baur is moving into the position from her previous role as the head of product for Salesforce's Nonprofit Cloud (, where she oversaw a portfolio of products across fundraising, marketing, program, and grants management. 

"It was incredibly challenging to find a talented executive product leader with deep knowledge of the nonprofit sector, who is an extraordinary coach and builder of teams, and who believes deeply in our mission of making the tools of leadership accessible to everyone. Yvonne is this rare person and I couldn't be more excited that she has joined the team," said Endres.
