See you at DreamForce 2011!
All the deets:
SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 18, 2011 – Salesforce.com (NYSE: CRM), the enterprise cloud computing (http://www.salesforce.com/cloudcomputing/) company, today announced results for its fiscal second quarter ended July 31, 2011.

Who’s the Better Bay Area Billionaire: Is It Marc Benioff of SalesForce.com or Larry Ellison of Oracle?Thursday, March 17th, 2011
Well let’s see here, now of course, Marc Benioff of Salesforce.com is spending 8 figures to pay for the UCSF Children’s Hospital they’re building at Mission Bay right now.
OTOH, Larry Ellison of Oracle wants us to pay him and give him land so that San Francisco can be forced to watch his little boat race:
Oh, wait, that’s not Larry Ellison, here he is, flipping off the competition as he sails by on his little boat.
Hurray Larry! We all love you, Larry! All your ex-wives let you down, but it wasn’t your fault, Larry, it was all their fault, you’re the greatest, Larry!
When Eric Cartman saved South Park he wanted just one reward – he wanted to play with his toy truck, but, also, he wanted another child to be forced to watch. See?
In this image, the toy truck is the America’s Cup, Cartman is Ellison, and Kyle back there, he’s the people of San Francisco, sold down the river, once again.
So, if you’re getting pressured to “donate” to Larry’s little boat race to “help the town” or whatever, that’s fine, do it if you want. You’ll be sure to get access to the “V.I.P.” tent or whatever and you’ll get some swag like a souvenir windbreaker or something, that’s fine.
Or, instead, you can do something real and donate to UCSF Mission Bay. (Last I heard, they needed something north of half a bil., all told)
It’s your choice.
Anyway, the results are in: Marc Benioff is the Better Bay Area Billionaire.
Your kids, don’t give money to them, else it’ll just go up their noses like so many times before, am I right?
So when you decide who deserves your hard-earned, start with UCSF at the top of the list why not?
Now, speak of the devil, UCSF is crowing today about all the money that people are giving them.
Check it out.
Marc Benioff talks about the reasons why he and his wife Lynne are giving $100 million to build a new children’s hospital, which is part of UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay, during a conference in San Jose on June 22:
UCSF Exceeds Philanthropic Goals in Fiscal Year 2010
In the midst of ongoing economic challenges across the globe, UCSF exceeded all of its philanthropic goals for fiscal year 2010.
For every major target, the University surpassed its objectives – resulting in more than $268 million in private support. This total includes more than 28,000 individual gifts made by nearly 21,000 donors, according to Carol Moss, vice chancellor of University Development and Alumni Relations.
UCSF received a particularly special show of support from alumni, who contributed a remarkable 30 percent more than last year.
“These results signify the incredible dedication of the broader UCSF community, which continues to demonstrate its belief in the University’s mission even in the face of unprecedented adversity,” said UCSF Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH.
One of the highlights of 2010 came in June, when Marc Benioff, founder, chairman and CEO of salesforce.com, announced the $100 million philanthropic gift he and his wife Lynne have pledged to UCSF Children’s Hospital.
The Benioffs’ historic donation is both the largest gift the donors have ever made and the largest gift ever granted specifically to the children’s hospital. It is the fourth largest philanthropic gift in UCSF’s history.
The gift will help fund the construction of the new UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital at Mission Bay, part of a 289-bed integrated hospital complex for children, women and cancer patients scheduled to break ground this month.
In fact, philanthropic giving to the $1.5 billion Mission Bay medical center has been robust. Mark Lariat, chief executive officer of UCSF Medical Center, in September announced that the hospitals project has recently received two pledges of $25 million each. These anonymous gifts bring the total raised to $375 million – nearly two-thirds of the fundraising goal of $600 million.
UCSF is historically among the top institutions in the country – private or public – in its ability to attract significant philanthropy. Last year, UCSF’s fundraising results ranked fourth in the country among all public institutions.
For six consecutive years, revenue from private support has surpassed the revenue UCSF receives from state appropriations, making philanthropy an ever more vital piece of UCSF’s $3.3 billion budget.
Regents clear way for UCSF to break ground on Mission Bay Hospitals

Oh it’s on. The fundraising campaign to get the Medical Center at Mission Bay off the ground is going well enough, so the University of California Board of Regents just gave the go-ahead for the project. The next step will be the groundbreaking ceremony.
(And oh, what’s the LEED rating? It’s Gold, baby. And oh, we’ve got choppers - a helipad is baked into the cake. Moving on…)
Putting cancer /women’s / children’s medicine in Mission Bay will free-up UCSF Medical Center at Parnassus Heights to do other things. It will:
“…transition into focusing on high-end adult surgical and medical services, including emergency medicine.”
(So you Inner Sunset / Cole Valley NIMBYs now have been warned. Let’s hope the increase in wailing sirens won’t disturb your lives too much…)
Anyway, turn up your speakers waaaaay loud (you’ll soon discover why) to see this short video from UCSF Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann and UCSF Medical Center CEO Mark Laret, if you want.
And here’s the Mission Bay renderporn. Radar O’Reilly can already hear the choppers:

Here’s what the 183-bed UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital might look like. For the record, the naming rights went for $100,000,000:
You can see it on the right here:
All the deets:
The University of California Board of Regents today unanimously approved funding plans for the new UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay. The board’s action is the final endorsement for the project, clearing the way for UCSF to break ground on a world-class hospital complex for children, women and cancer patients in the Mission Bay neighborhood, south of downtown San Francisco.
“The Regents’ approval is a major milestone for UCSF and for our family of supporters throughout the community,” said UCSF Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann. “It is hard to overstate the importance of the new medical center at Mission Bay, which will reinforce UCSF and the entire Bay Area as a hub of innovation, biotechnology and premier health care.”
After nearly a decade of planning, site preparations are underway on the 14.5-acre parcel of land. Construction of the 878,000-gross-square-foot hospital complex will begin on schedule in December 2010, shortly after required state permits are expected to be issued. Upon completion in 2014, the 289-bed facility will set a new standard for patient- and family-centered health care, safety, sustainability and translational medicine.
“Ten years ago, the UCSF Medical Center at Mission Bay was a dream, but we are now ready to break ground and bring this vision to reality,” said Mark R. Laret, CEO of UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital. “The greatest legacy of the Regents’ decision to approve this new medical center will be the thousands of patient lives that are saved or improved because of the cutting-edge medical care that will be provided in these facilities.”
