Ledgeview Partners Joins the Pledge 1% Movement, Commits to Compassion and Helping to End Child Poverty
Ledgeview Partners Leverages 5% of its Net Income to Improve Global Communities
Appleton, WI, June 22, 2018 – Ledgeview Partners announced today that it has joined the Pledge 1% program, a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a stakeholder in every business.
Spearheaded by Atlassian, Rally, Salesforce, and Tides, Pledge 1% empowers companies to donate 1% of their product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to improve communities around the world.
Ledgeview Partners has joined an impressive network of entrepreneurs and companies across the globe that have committed to philanthropic efforts through the Pledge 1% movement. By donating 5% of its net income, Ledgeview Partners is demonstrating its commitment to philanthropic leadership.
Ledgeview Partners has focused on the value of giving back to communities since its inception more than 10 years ago.
“At the beginning of Ledgeview Partners, one of our goals was to make a difference in our communities, not just locally, but globally,” says Doug Fissell, Co-Founder and President of Ledgeview Partners.
“As an organization, we believe in giving back; it is one of the pillars of Ledgeview Partners’ business philosophy. Through our donations, we strive to help end child poverty.
We are proud to align with Salesforce’s Pledge 1% philanthropic model. Our give-back initiatives have helped guide our team with a spirit of charity and being a part of something bigger than a workplace or company — compassion is who we are.”
Lucie Schulze, General Manager at Ledgeview Partners, was with Ledgeview Partners from the beginning. She reflects on the company’s work with Compassion International and unwavering commitment to charity since then.
“At Ledgeview Partners, we truly believe in our motto of ‘transforming business, one relationship at a time’,” says Schulze.
“Though we may not have the direct resources to end poverty ourselves, we can contribute to organizations that do, between the Pledge 1% program and Compassion International.
Compassion International is a nonprofit organization that provides resources and opportunities to children in third-world countries with the education, food, mentorship and medical care they need to survive. We are proud to sponsor these children to give them restored hope for bright futures.”
Salesforce excites over Ledgeview’s involvement.
“Salesforce is dedicated to changing the way companies think about corporate philanthropy,” says Suzanne DiBianca, EVP of Corporate Relations and Chief Philanthropy Officer at Salesforce. “We’re excited that Ledgeview Partners is joining us in giving their resources back to the community. This is another great example of the power that business has to create change in our communities.”
