The driving initiative of the TechnologyOne Foundation is the 1% pledge, committing TechnologyOne to donating 1% of time, 1% of profit and 1% of product. This initiative is part of the Pledge 1% corporate philanthropy movement, dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. Pledge 1% encourages and challenges individuals and companies to pledge 1% of profit, product and employee time for their communities. It’s a small commitment today that can make a huge impact in local communities tomorrow. Pledge 1% was founded by a number of software companies, including Salesforce.com and Atlassian, to “change the world through inspiring early stage corporate philanthropy”. TechnologyOne was one of the first companies to join the program.
TechnologyOne also partners with a number of key charities including Opportunity International Australia, The School of St Jude, The Fred Hollows Foundation, Solar Buddy and The Salvation Army. This strategic approach to charitable giving enables the company to make a bigger difference to the causes it supports.
For over 30 years, TechnologyOne has committed to making philanthropic contributions of funding, technology equipment and staff volunteering time to more than 48 different not-for-profit organisations. The company chose to focus on initiatives that empower underprivileged and at risk youth to transform their lives and to create their own pathways of success. It supports youth because real change can only happen through investing in young people.
With the company’s passion for innovation and entrepreneurship, TechnologyOne has set out to support charitable initiatives that share the same passion.
