The vision of the Salesforce Foundation is to use salesforce.com's people, technology and relationships to improve our communities, inspire youth to be more successful, support the world during times of extreme need, and promote compassionate capitalism.
Our mission is to remain the leaders in pioneering, evangelizing and implementing the 1% model, and using this model as a means to improve the lives of people around the world.
The Salesforce Foundation harnesses the power of product and people to improve the lives of those in need. Using a unique 1/1/1 model - 1% Time, 1% Equity, and 1% Product - the Foundation reaches out to the community and increases the effectiveness of non profit organisations so they can better achieve their goals.
We concentrate on the use of technology, specifically as it relates to organisations with youth development programs. We have created technology centers around the world that help kids in technology-bereft urban and rural areas hope for and create a better future for themselves.
Our employees give freely of their time and expertise, feeding the homeless, tutoring kids, improving nonprofit spaces, and offering hundreds of helping hands when the world is faced with devastating natural disasters. And we give a financial leg up to non-profits—both large and small—that are in need.
Working on an international level, the Foundation has offices in San Francisco, CA and New York, NY (U.S.A.), London (U.K.), Dublin (Ireland), and Tokyo (Japan).
Our programs - and especially our people - are proof that real social change is very much within our reach.
