Online PR News – 23-November-2015 – FM – According to some Salesforce.com Foundation news release, the grants are intended to bring an importance to San Francisco's District 10, the political district such as the Bayview Hunters Point neighborhood, by funding "anchor institutions,' and accelerating the District's transformation.Salesforce.com Foundation Executive Director Suzanne DiBianca was quoted in a pr release as saying the intent of Salesforce.com's style of philanthropy is "to increase the lives of men and women in our backyard."While sorely needed funding may benefit a range of issues and San Francisco organizations, the backyard connection Salesforce.com wants may not be clear to District 10 residents who are unlikely to identify some in the recipient organizations. The Bayview YMCA, which has carried the moniker "anchor institution" for years, didn't make the list, and organizations usually connected with transformation inside the Southeast weren't mentioned.The recipients:Perhaps the very least surprising recipient is the Southeast Health Center which is located in Bayview and serves residents here. The Center's good service to the city is widely-known, as may be the need for massive improvement on the aging building.San Francisco General Hospital Foundation and also the hospital itself are situated on the western side of District 10. The hospital sees a lot of District 10 residents together with patients from through the entire City. The grant builds on an exceptional gift from Salesforce.com founder Marc and Lynne Benioff to the UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital, under construction in Mission Bay, just north with the District.The website for a more mysterious recipient, Campaign for Hope SF, proves to be that with the Hope SF program from the Mayor's Office of Housing. Some residents will remember fondly the program through the older name, but might have thought that program had vanished in a very cloud of public housing construction dust.Locals can probably name several youth skills training organizations within the area, and can not recognize Year Up, a national organization with local offices downtown.The Exploratorium, a well-known San Francisco brand, is another grant recipient. The organization is moving to Pier 15, for the Embarcadero following Green Street.While Salesforce.com's grantmaking and rhetoric may not perfectly align, this business seems to be showing it wants to be a good corporate citizen in San Francisco. $10 million sure is an excellent start, and builds on previous gifts.What will swiftly prove more valuable to Salesforce.com and also the Southeast Sector of San Francisco can be a related pledge the corporation has made to offer 100,000 hours of employee community service to District 10.If successful, the philanthropists could become better familiar with the District's organizations that are contributing to the transformation with the Southeast Sector, and Southeast Sector change-makers may yet receive a practical contribution.
