Bluewolf Announces Alliance with Salesforce.com Foundation “The Power of Us” Partner Program
Program kicked off today at “The Power of Partners” event in New York City with inaugural partner Bluewolf embracing the integrated philanthropy model
NEW YORK--Bluewolf, an on-demand enterprise consulting company that specializes in the deployment of enterprise software applications, and Salesforce.com Foundation, the global leader in integrating philanthropy and business, today announced that it will participate in one of the most ambitious and groundbreaking programs in corporate philanthropy, Salesforce.com Foundation “Power of Us” partner program.
As part of the partnership, Bluewolf will be celebrating National Philanthropy Day by ‘giving back’ and connecting with current salesforce.com nonprofit customers who need their expertise. Bluewolf will participate in the four pillars of the salesforce.com 1% model by providing time and products to salesforce.com nonprofit customers. This program will be launched today at the “The Power of Partners,” a free educational event for existing nonprofit customers put on by the Salesforce.com Foundation.
“Bluewolf is proud to be an integral part of the salesforce.com foundation’s “Power of Us,” commented Michael Kirven, co-founder and Principal at Bluewolf. “Corporate philanthropy is a core tenant of the Bluewolf culture and today marks a great step forward for everyone involved.”
The Power of Us – A Roadmap for Corporate Philanthropy
The Power of Us partner program was created to grow Salesforce.com Foundation’s community benefits exponentially by increasing the number of companies committed to a similar method of corporate social responsibility. The prospect of adopting a philanthropic model that will be embraced by employees, customers and investors alike is a daunting task for any company. Many companies look to salesforce.com and the Salesforce.com Foundation as an example because of their ability to “do well, while doing good.”
With the Power of Us, the Salesforce.com Foundation is committed to mentoring companies to successfully incorporate integrated philanthropy into their business model. While the initiative is still in the early phase, the Salesforce.com Foundation has already successfully inspired partner organizations like Bluewolf, Vertical Response and AppExtremes to incorporate philanthropy into their “for profit” company.
“Since the inception of the Salesforce.com Foundation, we realized that there was a wealth of committed salesforce.com partners with the desire, means and resources to make a meaningful impact on the nonprofit community,” said Suzanne DiBianca, executive director at the Salesforce.com Foundation. “The Power of Us partner initiative allows our existing partners to get involved quickly and in a meaningful way without having to spend time or money setting up their own Foundations. Facilitating this kind of giving increases the impact on the nonprofit customers of salesforce.com - these donated services and products are what leveraged giving is all about.”
