Gen25 joins Pledge 1%

News Claire Hilbrink | 08-05-2018 Pledge 1%

We are pleased to announce that Gen25 has joined Pledge 1%, a global movement that aims to change the world through inspiring corporate philanthropy, where companies of all sizes integrate giving back into their culture and values.

Pledge 1% founding partners include Salesforce, Atlassian and Rally, who are still spearheading the movement today by empowering companies to donate 1% of product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to causes of their choice. Thousands of companies around the world have taken the Pledge and shared their intent to give back through their company.

‘As a growing company we feel it is important to give back to our community. We’re excited to join Pledge 1% and are committed to pledging 1% of our time to our community. All staff members are given 2 days annually to volunteer for an organization of their choosing.’ Gijs Martens, Founder & CEO of Gen25.

Since joining the Pledge 1% movement three Gen25 colleagues have already signed up for volunteer activities helping out at a camp for special needs kids.

We are proud to be a Pledge 1% member and to have such dedicated colleagues. For more information about Pledge 1%, visit www.pledge1percent.org.
