Today, we are excited to announce that AppCentrica has joined Pledge 1%, a global movement where companies of all sizes integrate giving back into their culture and values.

Pledge 1% encourages companies to donate 1% of product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to causes of their choice. Thousands of companies around the world have taken the Pledge and shared their intent to give back through their company.

“Social responsibility has always been part of our corporate DNA”. Said Ed Nemes, CEO of AppCentrica, “It’s one of our strategic goals as a company and we track our progress with a Community Dashboard App created by our employees. We are pleased to be part of the Pledge 1% community and look forward to learning how to make our programs even more successful with their assistance. It feels great to give back and our employees have jumped in with two feet, volunteering time, organizing events and sharing their stories.”

We are excited to join Pledge 1%’s network of founders, entrepreneurs and companies around the globe that have committed to giving back. AppCentrica has committed to pledging 1% of our time, profit, and product to our community.

“We are incredibly excited that AppCentrica has taken the pledge,” said Amy Lesnick, chief executive of Pledge 1%. “AppCentrica 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.”

We are proud to be a Pledge 1% member. For more information about Pledge 1%, visit www.pledge1percent.org.
