DigitalMaas announced today that it has joined Pledge 1%, a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. Spearheaded by Atlassian, Rally, Salesforce and Tides, Pledge 1% empowers companies to donate 1% of product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to improve communities around the world.
DigitalMaas is joining an impressive network of entrepreneurs and companies across the globe that have committed to philanthropic efforts through the Pledge 1% movement. By pledging 1% of its employee time, DigitalMaas is demonstrating a commitment to philanthropic leadership.
Giving back to the community is the core of what DigitalMaas does, alongside delivering the best marketing solutions and experience to its clients. For the past three years, DigitalMaas has been volunteering in Sydney Homeless Connect’s annual winter event to help disadvantaged people connect with the services and support they need. Moreover, in 2018, DigitalMaas started providing free digital marketing services to non-profit organisations like Dance for Abilities, 2 Pairs Projects, and Life Circle. It also donated over 300 hours of employee time to community volunteering.
“DigitalMaas is proud to join a global movement where companies are dedicated to make a difference and build a sustainable future,” said Andrew Thorn, CEO of DigitalMaas. “Giving back has been a part of our culture ever since and taking the Pledge 1% is a great step for us to deepen our philanthropic commitment as we continue to grow our company.”
“Salesforce is dedicated to changing the way companies think about corporate philanthropy,” said Suzanne DiBianca, EVP of corporate relations and chief philanthropy officer, Salesforce. “Today, we’re excited that DigitalMaas is joining us in giving their resources back to the community. This is another great example of the power that business has to create change in our communities.”
“We are thrilled that DigitalMaas has joined the Pledge 1% movement and is committed to sharing its success with the community,” said Scott Farquhar, co-founder and co-CEO, Atlassian. “Employees, shareholders, customers, and the community all benefit when a company builds giving back into its DNA. It’s one of the best decisions we ever made.”
“We are incredibly excited that DigitalMaas has taken the pledge,” said Amy Lesnick, chief executive of Pledge 1%. “DigitalMaas can play a pivotal role in building this movement and promoting a new normal in which all companies—big and small—integrate giving back as a core value in their business.”
