Zendesk moved its San Francisco headquarters to the Tenderloin in 2011, a famous and deeply historic neighborhood in the heart of the city that was unfortunately neglected for decades. Since moving in, they have invested thousands of dollars and volunteer hours into the Tenderloin as well as communities around our other global offices.

In 2015, they launched the Zendesk Neighbor Foundation which aims to engage with, and provide support to, our local communities. The Foundation focuses on neighborhood renewal and improvement by addressing poverty, homelessness and healthcare, improving education and promoting gender equality, development and technical literacy.
