Over the last 15 years, the Salesforce.com Foundation has become a vital part of salesforce.com’s culture — and has allowed us to engage our employees in their communities and support the effectiveness of the nonprofit sector.
The Salesforce.com Foundation is based on a simple idea: Leverage salesforce.com’s people, technology, and resources to improve communities throughout the world. We call our integrated philanthropic approach the 1/1/1 model. It’s easy to get started and the benefits grow exponentially as your company grows.
Since our founding, we have given over $53 million in grants, 580,000 hours of community service, and provided product donations for over 20,000 nonprofits.
“When it comes to philanthropy, I have one pitch, and it’s been the same since the founding of our company 13 years ago: the 1/1/1 model of integrated corporate philanthropy.”
- Marc Benioff, Chairman & CEO, salesforce.com
