2021 Community Activity Recap

2021 has been an exciting year for Pledge 1% and we can't wait to see what we're able to build with all of you in 2022. With your help and engagement the new online community will enable us to grow the Pledge 1% movement and change the way businesses support their communities. We're very proud to share your community activity below:


We have an amazing agenda created for 2022 and we can't wait to share our ideas with all of you. If you'd like to get more involved behind the scenes by joining a programming committee or volunteering on the community, please let us know


New Feature: Job Title and Company 

We’re excited to announce a new feature addressing a request we heard from many of you: Job Title and Company has been added to each Member Post

Get to know your peers and fellow Pledge 1% Members better by engaging in conversation on the Social Impact Forum. As you view these conversations, note you can now see the member’s Job Title and Company on each of the posts: 




Not seeing this on your post? You may need to fill this information out on your profile. To do that click your user icon on the top right corner of your screen, select My Settings, then select the Personal Information tab to enter your Job Title. 

We recommend including your first and last name in your username and you can update that by clicking on the Username tab under My Settings (example: Rose_Spitzer, RoseSpitzer). As a follow up to this new feature we will be extending the character limit and allowing spaces. Stay tuned for that announcement coming in January! 



Pledge 1% Holiday Schedule 

The Pledge 1% office will be closed for the holidays until Sunday, January 2, 2022.  We will resume normal business hours on Monday, January 3, 2022. 


All Pledge 1% staff are taking time to recharge and spend with their families.  However, we will continue to monitor email periodically for time-sensitive and urgent requests. Please contact if you have any issues here on the community over the holiday. 


Wishing you and your family a safe, relaxing, and healthy holiday break and new year. heart-woman.png
