Welcome to the Pledge 1% Community! We're delighted to have you here and have created this post to help you get the most out of your community experience.
The Pledge 1% Community is a safe online space where social impact leaders can share insights, discuss best practices, engage as thought-leaders, drive trending topics, and inspire one another to achieve their goals. You'll find quality resources to help get your initiatives started, leverage your assets for good and create a momentum of change.
We'll use this Community Welcome forum to keep you updated on the latest features, activities, and fun here on the Pledge 1% Community Platform. Review the steps below and start your journey as a Pledge 1% Community member.
