Record Year for Salesforce Volunteers

By September 18, 2018Dream Builder, News

Our Dream Builders, sponsors who donate $100,000 and more, not only promote their corporate social responsibility goals, but also provide stability for Greater Indy Habitat to continue building homes, communities, and hope. In 2018, our Dream Builders raised a combined total of $1,588,944. One of these Dream Builders is Salesforce. For those who are not familiar with Salesforce, in 1999, they pioneered cloud-based CRM software and have helped 150,000+ companies run their companies more effectively and has a history of helping companies, and the people behind them, grow.

In 2010, Salesforce (then Exact Target), first invested of their time, talents, and funds to participate in their very first Habitat home build, as well as partner with One America on a panel build downtown. Since this time, Salesforce has contributed more than $550,000, funded six full homes, six team build days, and two panel builds, volunteering more than 10,000 hours. In 2018, Salesforce had a record year of 420 employees participating on 13 different home builds, volunteering a total of 2,758 hours. Salesforce also has a team member who is helping to launch our first Young Professional’s chapter.

At the most recent Salesforce home dedications for the Hill and Pinner families in the Kennedy-King neighborhood, our board member Tim Horoho shared that at Salesforce they are an “Ohana of Trailblazers,” inclusive of their customers, employees, partners, and communities. Tim also shared that Salesforce employees take care of each other, have fun together, and work collaboratively to make the world a better place.

We are thankful to be part of this Salesforce family!
