Salesforce CEO: $30M donation to solve San Francisco’s homelessness crisis


Salesforce CEO Mark Benioff continues his passion to tackle homelessness with another donation. 

This time, it’s $30 million.

The money will go to UC San Francisco, where experts there will use the money to research the causes of homelessness, come up with possible solutions, train the next generation of teachers, and help former homeless to become expert speakers so they can spread their stories to possible change laws and opinions. 

Benioff is one of San Francisco’s leading advocates as he was one of the driving forces behind Prop C, which voters approved last year. 

The money could raise about $300 million to help out the homeless in San Francisco.
