The Pledge 1%

The Pledge 1%

Devika has joined The Pledge 1%, a movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. The Pledge 1% encourages and challenges individuals and companies to pledge 1% of equity, product, and employee time towards their communities.

We want to change the world through inspiring early–stage corporate philanthropy. Pledge 1% is an easy way to leverage a portion of your future success to support nonprofits in your local region. For a small commitment today you can make a huge impact tomorrow. The sooner you start, the easier it is – so join your fellow founders by making a pledge today!

The Devika team support a range of programs, partners and initiatives that strive to positively impact people, on both local and international levels For that reason we like to advance meaningful business advocacy by executing and promoting  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. It's aim is to 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.
