Salesforce.com Foundation Honored by YMCA of San Francisco with 2007 Building Strong Communities Award

Recognized for contributions to the new playground for children of Bayview Hunter's Point, the Salesforce.com Foundation joins Sprint Nextel and KaBOOM! as 2007 honorees

SAN FRANCISCO - April 27, 2007 - Salesforce.com [NYSE: CRM], the market and technology leader in on-demand business services, and the Salesforce.com Foundation today announced that the YMCA of San Francisco has honored the Salesforce.com Foundation with its 2007 Building Strong Communities Award for its contributions to the building of a new playground for the children of Bayview Hunter's Point. The Building Strong Communities Award is given to honor corporate and philanthropic organizations that help provide vital and much-needed services to the children and families within the four-county area served by the San Francisco YMCA.

"The Salesforce.com Foundation has been instrumental in helping the YMCA serve the communities of Bayview Hunter's Point, providing both financial backing and volunteer hours to build a new playground for children to play and interact," said Charles Collins, president and CEO of YMCA of San Francisco.  "This award is a token of our appreciation for those efforts, support and contributions, which are invaluable to the mission of the YMCA to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities."

"Having launched the Salesforce.com Foundation at the Embarcadero YMCA in July of 2000, receiving this award is especially gratifying for the organization. Over 100 salesforce.com employees, customers and partners came together to build the playground at the Bayview Hunter's Point YMCA engaging our extended ecosystem in giving back - a core part of the 'Power of Us' partner program that we launched earlier this year," said Suzanne DiBianca, Executive Director of the Salesforce.com Foundation.  "We're happy to accept this award from the YMCA of San Francisco, and to know that the children of Bayview Hunter's Point will enjoy a safe and fun environment to play in."

The YMCA of San Francisco Volunteer of the Year Award will be held on the evening of Friday, April 27, 2007 at the Palace of Fine Arts.  In addition to Salesforce.com, KaBOOM! and Salesforce.com customer Sprint Nextel were honored for their contributions to the YMCA.
