Since its inception, salesforce.com and its employees have given over 40,000 hours of their time, given millions of dollars in grants, donated product to more than 1600 nonprofits and announced the recent Earthforce initiative which is neutralizing the effect of salesforce.com's major areas of carbon consumption through the strategic purchase of carbon offsets.

"It is extremely gratifying to be recognized by industry peers as a leading example in corporate citizenship, something that is becoming even more vital in our current environment. Salesforce.com Foundation's primary initiative is to encourage organizations to adopt philanthropic models that encourage the company and employees to make positive contributions to their community."

Committee members included Bob Corcoran of GE, Ray Horton of Columbia Business School, David Kirkpatrick of Fortune Magazine, Tae Yoo of Cisco Systems and Brad Googins of The Center for Corporate Citizenship at Boston College.
The 7th Annual CECP Excellence Awards luncheon was held in New York today and was attended by over 130 CEOs, industry leaders and members of the press to congratulate the winners and hear remarks from each of the honorees. The awards were given out by David Kirkpatrick of Fortune Magazine. February 26th is also National Corporate Philanthropy Day, which is aimed at building awareness of philanthropic achievements, sharing the benefits of corporate giving, and inspiring businesses across the country to engage further in philanthropy.
In conjunction with National Corporate Philanthropy Day, the Salesforce.com Foundation is hosting an event to launch their latest most ambitious program to date -- The Power of Us.
