“We learned about Pledge 1% the first time at last year’s Atlassian Summit and instantly liked the idea”, said Gerald Aquila, founder and CEO of onepoint. “When we learned that a number of our employees were already doing voluntary work for various non-profit organizations, we decided that it would be a natural next step to actively support their engagement and also motivate other employees to start giving back to their communities.”

“Salesforce is dedicated to changing the way companies think about corporate philanthropy,” said Suzanne DiBianca, EVP of corporate relations and chief philanthropy officer, Salesforce. “Today, we’re excited that onepoint 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.”

“We are incredibly excited that onepoint PROJECTS has taken the pledge," said Amy Lesnick, chief executive of Pledge 1%. “onepoint can play a pivotal role in building this movement and promoting a new normal in which all companies—big and small—integrate giving back as a core value in their business.”
