This May 5th, organizations around the world are coming together for #GivingTuesdayNow, a new global day that celebrates generosity and unity in response to COVID-19.
On this day, Giveclarity are delighted to announce our commitment to Pledge 1%!
What is Pledge 1%?
Pledge 1% is a global movement to inspire, educate, and empower every company to be a force for good. There are over 10,000 members in 100 countries.
What are we pledging?
As part of this movement, we are pledging to donate 1% of our staff time, product and/or profit to charities of our choice.
As a Social Enterprise, we already seek to make charities more efficient and effective, and invest a minimum of 50% of our profits back into the business and the sector. Recently, we also started offering a Pro Bono Programme to smaller charities, and donated a significant share of our profits to charities.
How about Salesforce?
Salesforce also Pledge 1%, as part of their philanthropic 1-1-1 model – and encourage their partners to do so too. Since their founding, Salesforce have given more than $240 million in grants, 3.5 million hours of community service, and provided product donations for more than 39,000 nonprofits and educational institutions.
