Howard Lake | 28 July 2008 | News

The Foundation has announced 15 grants to charities and nonprofits in 15 countries, including one in the UK. Recipients were chosen from nearly 200 applicants and scored by advisory groups of employees around the globe.
The grants are part of software-as-a-service company’s “1/1/1 integrated corporate philanthropy model” where 1% of employee time, 1% of the company’s equity, and 1% of the company’s product are donated to nonprofits.
The UK recipient was Children in Crisis‘ d:side Programme which uses Salesforce to improve and maximise the reach of its d:side (drugs: support, information, drug education) curriculum resource programme to 44,000 school children across the UK.
Isabel Kelly, director for Europe, Middle East, Africa, of the Foundation said: “It is extremely gratifying to see how Salesforce technology can bring success to nonprofits around the world, whether it’s used to improve communication, to bring together local nonprofits to better serve constituents, or to manage microfinance programs across the developing world.”
The Foundation provides two types of grants as part of its 1/1/1 Model. The Turn It Up grant is designed to support current nonprofit customers with innovative and replicable project proposals that want to “Turn Up” their use of Salesforce to provide deeper and measurable benefit within their organisation as well as the greater nonprofit sector.
The Technology for Youth Development grant is designed for youth-focused organisations to integrate technology into their organisation in order to further their mission and enhance the lives of the young people they work with.
