g-company foundation: give back to society

g-company foundation: give back to society

From the start of our Salesforce activities in 2013, we wanted to “give back to society” with g-company foundation. In the last few years, we realized multiple projects: support of Granny’s Finest, ran the Amsterdam Dam to Damrun, organized a bunch of inspiring workshops, launched the g-company Foundation Academy and we cycled 500 km with the Ronald McDonald HomeRide!

 

In 2020: refugees becoming Salesforce administrators

In 2020, we joined forces with RefugeeForce Foundation, where we employed Salesforce educated status holders as Salesforce Administrators on several projects. Examples are the internship of Philip Gahshan and the by him developed masterclasses with RefugeeForce Trainees. We are proud that we have contributed to the fact that multiple refugees have found a job as Salesforce Administrator.

Did you know that?

g-company foundation is inspired on the examples of Salesforce and Google.

Google.org is in turn inspired on Salesforce Foundation (Salesforce.org). Larry Page and Sergey Brin, the founders of Google, were in front of the audience at a speech given by Marc Benioff at Stanford University. “We are starting a company named Google that will do no evil” they said. “Google.org was thrilled to copy, emulate and ‘steal’ the wonderful Salesforce.com model” claims Benioff in his book ‘Behind the Cloud’.

Salesforce.org gives discounts to NGOs, just like Google.org. Google Workspace is free for non-profits via Techsoup. Straightforwardly, g-company can help with the implementation. As Google Cloud Premier Partner we have all the knowledge and experience!
