SAP HANA Helps Humanity
As SAP HANA is a strategic initiative for your organization, SAP “approaches corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategically – in order to ensure a sustainable future for society, our customers, and our company. By focusing our talent, technology, and capital on education and entrepreneurship, we strive to enact positive social change through economic growth, job creation, innovation, and community.”

The SAP HANA iFG selected these two organizations based on their great teaming with SAP, customers, and partners around the globe and the synergy with charities selected for the SAP HANA Innovation Awards 2015.  We want a fun way to grow the community and make social impact during the Month of Service!

Thank you for your consideration to invite your SAP HANA colleagues to the SAP HANA iFG community and join us as HANA Helps Humanity.  This initiative will last from October 5 to Thursday, December 24th; we hope to surpass our goal!
