Spearheaded by Atlassian, Rally, Salesforce and Tides, Pledge 1% empowers companies to donate 1% of product, 1% of equity, 1% of profit or 1% of employee time to improve communities around the world.
onepoint is joining an impressive network of entrepreneurs and companies across the globe that have committed to philanthropic efforts through the Pledge 1% movement. By pledging 1% of its employee time, onepoint is demonstrating a commitment to philanthropic leadership.

Known for its strong bidirectional integration with JIRA and quick rollout times, it is already used by hundreds of satisfied enterprise customers around the world.
“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 thrilled that onepoint PROJECTS has joined the Pledge 1% movement and is committed to sharing its success with the community,” said Scott Farquhar, co-founder and co-CEO, Atlassian. “Employees, shareholders, customers, and the community all benefit when a company builds giving back into its DNA. It’s one of the best decisions we ever made."
“We believe Pledge 1% is a great step for businesses to become a force for good in the world,” said Ryan Martens, co-founder, EFCO & founder/CTO, Rally, now part of CA Technologies. “We applaud onepoint for committing a portion of their success to their community stakeholders and social impact.”
“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.”
