Optoro is proud to announce that we have joined Pledge 1%, a global movement creating a new normal where companies of all sizes integrate giving back into their culture and values. Pledge 1% empowers companies to donate 1% of product, employee time, equity, or profit to causes of their choice.

In our initial year, Optoro has committed to donating 1% of our product and 1% of employee time to causes close to our communities, both in Washington, D.C. and Mt. Juliet, TN. By effectively donating goods to those in need and offering paid Volunteer Time Off to all employees, we pledge to continue ingraining giving back into our business. We are excited to stand alongside Pledge 1%’s participating companies, including Salesforce, Atlassian, and numerous others, in this mission to make philanthropy an integral part of our company.
