Pledge 1% invites all entrepreneurs and their companies to commit important resources (product, equity and time) to support integrating philanthropy into their business from an early stage.
“The business of business is improving the state of the world.”
– Marc Benioff, Chairman & CEO, Salesforce
Over the last 16 years, the Salesforce Foundation has become a vital part of the Salesforce culture — and has allowed us to engage our employees in their communities and support the effectiveness of the social sector.
The Salesforce Foundation is based on a simple idea: Leverage our product, equity, and time to improve communities throughout the world. We call our integrated philanthropic approach the 1-1-1 model. Since our founding, we have given over $96+ million in grants, 1.1 million hours of community service, and provided product donations for over 26,000 nonprofits and higher education institutions.
It’s easy to get started and the benefits grow exponentially as your company grows.
