Our Evolution

Over the years we have learned we can’t solve for a changing world without changing ourselves. We didn’t always know where we would end up but our partners, customers, and global social movements have guided us along the way. Check out our timeline here.

We were set up first with founder’s equity as a corporate foundation and evolved into a nonprofit social enterprise to give free and discounted technology to those who need it the most. Now, we are the dedicated social impact team within Salesforce, an industry leader in technology and philanthropy. Our evolution allowed us to exponentially increase our grantmaking, grow our customers, and strengthen our tailored solutions for nonprofit, educational, and philanthropic organizations.

Today, we are a for-profit dedicated to the non-profit and education sectors, we provide free and deeply discounted technology to our community. And we continue to measure our success based on our social impact.
