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 unique model was designed to grow along with salesforce.com. The ultimate goal: to disseminate the financial, technological and intellectual wealth of the organization to those in our communities who need it most. Thats the Power of Us.The Salesforce.com Foundation was officially launched at an event featuring former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell, less than a year after the company's formation. More than 10 years later, integrated philanthropy remains one of salesforce.com's core values. Our success has proven that weaving philanthropy into the fabric of a company right from the start- rather than waiting for a certain level of comfortable success- is an approach that works.
