We are excited to announce this week that Vision Board VR will be pledging 1%

What is the 1% Pledge?

Pledge 1% is a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. Pledge 1% encourages and challenges individuals and companies to pledge 1% of equity,product, and employee time for their communities.

Why pledge? 

Companies and their employees today want to be civically minded and aligned with a social mission that prioritises having a positive impact on the world.

Taking the 1% pledge helps companies and individuals demonstrate their philanthropic intent and hold themselves accountable for turning a pledge into action.

How does it work?

Pledge1percent.org has been built to enable companies and individuals to learn more about how to create a culture of giving through resources, case studies, and best practices.

The website also enables visitors to pledge equity, employee time and/or product directly on the site. Pledge 1% staff facilitate making an equity pledge easy to implement, connect companies with local resources to empower employee engagement programs, and help companies to further define and respond to community needs.

Who benefits from the pledges?

Pledgees choose the cause, focus area and nonprofits to receive the realised value of their resources based on their community goals and company and employee interests. The Pledge 1% movement is fully funded by its founding partners, so all realised benefit from pledges goes to the causes that pledgees support. Companies are able to make an optional donation to Pledge 1% upon exit, but this is an optional donation and not a requirement for engagement.
