The Salesforce.com Foundation is based on a simple idea: Leverage salesforce.com’s people, technology and resources to build collective knowledge and enable action to improve communities throughout the world. We call our integrated philanthropic approach the 1:1:1 model.
Impact by the numbers:
20,000+ higher ed & nonprofit customers
$53+ million in grants
We help Salesforce.com employees around the world find meaningful ways to volunteer and get engaged in their local communities. Every year, each salesforce.com employee is entitled to 6 days of paid time-off for volunteer projects of their choice.
We donate and discount salesforce.com products to help nonprofit and higher ed institutions increase their effectiveness—so they can focus more time and resources on achieving their mission. We call this our Power of Us program.
We make grants with a focus on: employee inspired giving including team volunteering activities and matching gifts; technology innovation through our annual Force-for-Change initiative; and supporting healthy communities in the locations where salesforce.com has corporate offices.
