The 1-1-1 Pledge 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.
“When it comes to philanthropy, I have one pitch, and it’s been the same since the founding of our company 15 years ago: the 1-1-1 model of integrated corporate philanthropy.”
- Marc Benioff, Chairman & CEO, Salesforce
Over the last 15 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 $80+ million in grants, 840,000+ hours of community service, and provided product donations for over 24,000 nonprofits and higher education institutions.
It’s easy to get started and the benefits grow exponentially as your company grows.
