Integrated philanthropy. The 1/1/1 model.
The Salesforce.com Foundation is based on a simple idea: Donate 1% of salesforce.com’s resources to support organizations that are working to make our world a better place.
Our 1% model is all about getting the most bang for the buck. We take just a fraction of salesforce.com’s time, product, and equity, and give it to social-change organizations so they can amplify their impact.
1% time. We promote a culture of caring and help Salesforce.com employees find meaningful ways to spend their 6 paid days off a year devoted to volunteerism.
1% product. Donated and discounted Salesforce CRM licenses help nonprofits increase their data management and operational effectiveness so they can focus on their core missions.
1% equity. Founding stock provides funds for grants and monetary assistance, especially to support youth, technology, and employee-inspired volunteer projects.
The Foundation’s ultimate goal? To disseminate our financial and intellectual wealth to better equip our communities to address their challenges.
