SAN FRANCISCO, CA, May 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Trevor Templar has long-supported socially-responsible business operation, and has come to appreciate the efforts of any successful business to be a driving force for good and positivity in communities throughout the world. He understands that often times a company is the best source for philanthropy within a given area, and that companies have powerful opportunities to make a positive and lasting difference in people's lives.
As a former employee of Salesforce.com, Trevor Templar came to understand and appreciate Salesforce's approach to community involvement, and quickly became a staunch advocate of the company's innovative 1/1/1 model. The 1/1/1 approach to philanthropy entails the integration of charity and philanthropy into a company's internal business model, making philanthropy more than an act of sponsorship or one-time contribution. The 1/1/1 model, as Trevor Templar
understands, makes philanthropy a core business value, and requires a constant commitment of company resources, such as time, product and equity.
The Salesforce.com Foundation's powerful philanthropy integration philosophy consists of three basic elements: People, Technology and Resources. As both Salesforce.com and Trevor Templar believe, the 1/1/1 approach provides companies with the opportunity to make a consistent, positive and tangible difference in people's lives across the globe.
People. On-the-ground volunteers can truly make a difference in the lives of people who need it the most. Trevor Templar understands that a company's employees are perhaps its most valuable asset, which is why he supports the Foundation's idea of creating opportunities for employees to make real and lasting contributions to their local communities. A crucial part of the 1/1/1 Philanthropic model, employees are provided encouragement and support by the company itself, and are enabled by the company to take action. Salesforce.com provides each employee 6 paid days off a year to volunteer in the events or organizations of their choice. By providing employees with this opportunity, as Trevor Templar
knows, you provide them with the support they need to actively express their interest in community involvement.
Technology. Salesforce.com's Power of Us Program provides nonprofits access both discounted and free access to its technology. A powerful part of the 1/1/1 model, the Power Us Program provides many nonprofits across the country with access to the company's technology, which Trevor Templar understands to be a highly effective way to empower these institutions to improve organizational efficiency and impact in their local communities.
Resources. Salesforce.com has made the grants process an integral part of its 1/1/1 model. The grants and philanthropy aspect of 1/1/1, according to Trevor Templar, focuses on matching employee gifts and generosity made to local charitable organizations. By matching employee donations, and by offering financial grants to nonprofit organizations around the world, a company has the opportunity to encourage employee giving, and to affect social change and improvement in local communities that span the globe. Trevor Templar
understands that the grants and philanthropy aspect of 1/1/1 can be a powerful motivator for company employee generosity.
Though there may be many variations on the 1/1/1 model, says Trevor Templar, Salesforce.com's philanthropic integration method can serve as a powerful template to any business seeking to make a more positive and enduring impact on community strength and health.
