employees have officially reached 500,000 volunteer hours! 

That’s half a million hours of teaching, training, building, cleaning, mentoring, and helping those who need it most. What an accomplishment!

This is a monumental milestone for our company. The Salesforce Foundation is based on a simple idea: leverage our people, technology, and resources to help improve communities around the world. We call this the 1/1/1 model, and today, we prove that donating just 1% of our time, products, and equity can make a real difference.
