We believe technology, when used for good, can change the world.

Salesforce.org About Us


We are the social impact center of Salesforce focused on partnering with the global community of changemakers.

We believe the purpose of business should be to improve the state of the world. We provide access to powerful technology, strategic community partnerships, and impactful investments that empower changemakers to build a better world.

We are a unique business unit dedicated to creating solutions for nonprofit, educational, and philanthropic organizations so they can have greater impact. Operating within Salesforce, a for-profit entity, increases our capacity to innovate on top of the world’s #1 CRM platform, to channel the philanthropic power of more than 45,000 Salesforce employees, and to inspire Salesforce customers and partners to join our global movement for good.

In fact, we are proud to have invested a total of $310M over the years in our communities including our strategic grants in workforce development and education. Giving back is in our DNA and we will continue to grant in communities where we live and work through the Salesforce Foundation, funded by a $300M donation when we joined forces with Salesforce. We will also continue to be a leader in citizen philanthropy through our employee giving and strategic volunteering.

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. We make significant grants to nonprofit organizations and drive employee philanthropy and volunteering. And we continue to measure our success based on our social impact.
