At this time, I am blissful to share that Salesforce and grant administrative associate Ureeka have notified 180 San Francisco small companies that they will be receiving $10,000 grants this month to assist them keep afloat as communities proceed to battle resulting from COVID-19.
Again in April, we launched our first small enterprise grant program in response to the shutdowns resulting from COVID-19.

Ordinarily, the occasion brings 1000’s of individuals to San Francisco, who in flip eat at eating places, store in shops and make the most of companies from small companies all through town.
