Today, we are pleased to announce that DeFrame has joined the Boston chapter of Pledge 1%, a global philanthropic movement creating new normal where companies of all sizes integrate giving back into their culture and values. Pledge 1% empowers companies to donate 1% of their product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to good causes of their choice. Over 1,500 companies in 40 countries have taken the Pledge and committed to communities around the world.

DeFrame is excited to join Pledge 1%’s network of founders, entrepreneurs and companies around the globe that have committed to giving back. We have committed to pledging 1% of DeFrame’s upcoming software/platform to local Art Galleries and Independent Artists.

At DeFrame we believe in the importance of art culturally, and socially. Our mission of Connecting Museums, Art, and People art goes beyond just sharing your thoughts and feelings about a painting; it is about making art both accessible and interactive to everyone, from art experts to kids who are visiting their first museum.

Also, by utilizing technology, we want to empower everyone’s art experience, creating a user-friendly experience that promotes a collaborative community that shares their perspectives and interpretations of art. We aim to create a more interactive approach to the process of appreciating and learning about art, its beauty, and importance to the world.

We believe in the importance of art culturally, and socially. We want to bring new ways of financial sustainability by keeping Museums and Art Galleries relevant to younger generations.
