To help fuel innovation and change we are committed to Pledge 1% of our time, effort, and funds to philanthropic causes every year. We believe we can do more than just this, but we know this is a great place to start.
We founded Yes& to engender good and create positive, lasting change in the world. However, we believe this should be more than a company motto; it should be reinforced with action.
Inspired by the Pledge 1% movement – a promise made by participating for-profit companies to support philanthropic endeavors with at least 1% of their staff time, product, profit, or equity – we regularly commit our resources to non-profit organizations on a pro bono basis. In addition, we offer corporate matching for employees who wish to contribute to non-profits of their choosing.
While the reach is modest, we believe 1% is the least that should be done and we look forward to continuing to expand how we support worthwhile missions outside of our business model.
