On the 25th & 26th of October, we celebrated reaching this milestone with our Pledge 1% Boardroom Allies, who were featured on the Nasdaq Tower. Scroll down below to see some of the day’s highlights!
Working closely with Boardroom Allies to help top companies set aside equity for social impact prior to liquidity events, Pledge 1% has doubled the $1 billion equity impact announced just four months ago, ensuring proceeds from a record-setting summer of IPO and market activity are earmarked for philanthropy. Pledge 1% ensures nonprofits benefit along with private markets, and is well on its way toward a goal of unlocking $5 billion in new philanthropy by 2025.
This momentum builds on more than $1 billion in philanthropy previously ignited by Pledge 1% industry leaders. Formalizing how executives and their teams can easily join the movement has dramatically accelerated impact.
