SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Salesforce.com founder Marc Benioff is donating $2.7 million to San Francisco city schools.

The money includes $100,000 in grants for each of the city's 12 middle schools as well as hundreds of iPads. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that officials were set to announce the donation on Monday.

Benioff has also asked district officials to let him know what else the middle schools need. He told the Chronicle Mayor Ed Lee's goal of preparing middle school students for the jobs of the future fits well with his company's philanthropic foundation.

San Francisco-based Salesforce provides customer-management software.
