One of the best parts of Pledge 1% is that it is an easy, tried-and-tested model to give back early and to grow your program as part of your business. It only takes 30 seconds to take the pledge, and you can always update your pledge type and information later. Click here to join or follow the steps below.
Step 1: Take the pledge on our site by clicking on this form.
Step 2: We’ll send you a quick survey to learn more about your company and then will follow-up with the most relevant resources based on your responses.
Step 3: You use Pledge 1%’s resources, case studies, and one-on-one guidance to map out both your program strategy and your pledge announcement. Who you give to, when you give, and how much is completely up to you! We encourage companies to give back as much as they can; however, it’s important that you do whatever makes sense for your company’s long-term growth and business model.
Step 4: If interested, you share your experience and best practices with our network, receiving extra exposure and recognition as a leader of the movement.
No. The pledge form is the first step in acknowledging your intention to give back to your community. We’ll provide you tools to support your pledge, but except in the case of the warrant for equity options, our pledge materials are non-binding.
We are here to empower you and support you. We will reach out on a regular basis to better understand the impact of our Pledge community as well as to surface best practices that can be shared or common challenges that can be collectively tackled. It’s not our role to evaluate you. We understand that companies will each evolve their own programs and leverage their own assets in a manner that’s best for them and aligned with their own mission.
