Around the holidays, charitable giving is on the rise. Whether it’s the spirit of Christmas or a recognition of cold weather making things harder for people, there’s no denying that this time of year is best for giving back. However, there are many causes that require your attention year round, which is why Pledge 1% is such a noble and necessary movement in the world today.

Pledge 1% helps companies, especially startups, give back to their communities and causes, as well as build a culture of giving. They encourage everyone from small businesses to large companies to Pledge 1% of their profit, time, product and/or equity to a philanthropy of their choice. Since they launched in 2014, over 1,500 companies in 40 countries have taken the Pledge 1%, including Salesforce, Atlassian, Yelp, Box, Twilio, and many more. 

To date, the top Pledge 1% companies alone have already ignited over $500 million in new philanthropy. Pledge 1% was also most recently recognized on Fast Company’s World’s Most Innovative Companies list and #1 most innovative nonprofit.

We are proud to announce our partnership with Pledge 1% and spark some good will at CES Startup Night. We’re also asking startups to join us in the festivities and Pledge 1%. 

To spur a little more buzz about giving back, every company that joins Pledge 1% won’t have to wait to get into our CES Startup Night event and can enter via the VIPledge express line. If you have already registered and want to take the Pledge, sign up here.

“We recognize the importance of startups and companies giving back to society,” said Jen Consalvo, COO and cofounder of TechCo. “We are excited to take the Pledge 1% ourselves and encourage other companies to join us!”

Check out Pledge 1% today and join other companies building a culture of giving back to society. Want to attend CES Startup Night? Make sure to RSVP here.
