Demandforce Cares was founded in 2011 to give employees the opportunity to give back to the San Francisco-Bay Area community. Each quarter Demandforce Cares selects one non-profit organization to volunteer with outside of the office environment, and one donation drive to participate in within the office.
Our mission is to inspire and motivate Demandforce employees to volunteer and donate in our local community. We remind each other that we can demand more of ourselves by giving back to our community. Work hard, play hard and GIVE BACK!
Our Volunteer Event History
Beach Clean Up!
June 22, 2013 & July 21, 2103
Demandforce partnered with the Surfrider Foundation to clean up San Francisco beaches. We went to Baker Beach in June on a gorgeous sunny day, and Ocean Beach in July on a typical foggy and cold SF summer's day. This event was even more rewarding because family, friends and pets were able to join us in volunteering.See images of this event

Glide Memorial Church
Our volunteers went to Glide Memorial Church to serve meals to the homeless and hungry of San Francisco. Glide serves breakfast, lunch and dinner 364 days a year, and requires 60 volunteers a day to serve these meals. A total of 45 Demandforce employees volunteered over the course of 3 days and 9 meals.
Special Olympics Bowling Night
Demandforce volunteered with the Special Olympics on Sunday, November 18th at Marin Bowl. There were 40 lanes open for a bowling competition, and our volunteers were lane monitors, helping and cheering on the bowlers. We had 6 volunteers from Demandforce attend, and everyone had a great time!
Habitat for Humanity
June & November 2012
Habitat for Humanity was our first all-day volunteer opportunity, and 35 volunteers came out on a Saturday to donate their time! We helped build a set of condos in Colma, performing tasks such as hanging sheet rock, applying roofing, water-proofing siding, and much more. Our volunteers loved this so much, we are doing another volunteer day in November 2012.
Ronald McDonald House
December, 2011 & January, 2012
Groups of 7-10 volunteers made dinner at the Ronald McDonald House (RMH) in San Francisco. Families with children receiving medical care at San Francisco hospitals can stay for extended periods of time at RMH. 35 volunteers participated, bought groceries, prepared dinner and ate with the families 6 evenings over the course of 3 months. RMH told us that the families loved it when Demandforce cooked dinner because the meals were so creative! We also did a toiletry/sundries drive in the office to donate to the families staying at RMH.
Sun Village, China
Our team of engineers in China went to Sun Village, a non-profit that provides foster care and education for children with incarcerated parents. Volunteers spent time with the children, brought donated food, and worked in Sun Village’s greenhouses to help pick strawberries.
