Pledge 1% Today to Make a Difference Tomorrow

Scaled Agile presents EFAA with their Pledge 1% check during their day of service.

Pledge 1% is an easy way to leverage a portion of your company’s future success to support EFAA. By taking the pledge, companies commit to donating 1% of their equity, profit, product, and/or employee time to making their community a better place to live. Last year, Scaled Agile and Foundry Group decided to take the pledge for EFAA. Here’s what they have to say about it.

“We believe it is everyone’s responsibility to support organizations like EFAA that champion human dignity and give people in crisis a hand up when they need it the most. Giving back to the place we call home is a part of Scaled Agile’s DNA and we do that by supporting EFAA through the Pledge 1% movement. If you run a business in Boulder County you couldn’t find a more worthy recipient for your corporate giving program.” – Dean Leffingwell, CEO and co-founder – Scaled Agile, Inc.

“Foundry Group gives through our participation in Pledge 1% Colorado, an organization that encourages entrepreneurs and companies to incorporate philanthropy into their corporate culture by supporting non-profits in their communities. EFAA does important work in Boulder supporting those in our community who have immediate needs – for food, shelter and other basic necessities. We’re proud to be supporters of such a vital community resource.” – Seth Levine, Partner – Foundry Group
