We are delighted that TechForce Services has joined the movement and we welcome them to our community.”
“We’re excited that Techforce Services is joining us in giving their resources back to the community. This is another great example of the power that business has to drive social change.” said Suzanne DiBianca, EVP of corporate relations and chief philanthropy officer, Salesforce. “At Salesforce we believe that every business can be a platform for positive change and we co-founded Pledge 1% with the intention of evangelizing that message.”
