Scaleup Technologies is proud to be a part of Pledge 1%, a global movement to give back to society. We have pledged 1% of our profit, time and product to support non-profit causes.
In 2019, we gave 1% of our profit to Team Trees, a social movement that aimed to raise $20m dollars to plant 20m trees by 2020. This money will be given to The Arbor Day Foundation who works closely with professional forestry partners such as the U.S. Forest Service, and other government and nongovernmental agencies, to ensure that tree-planting best practices are followed.
The trees will be planted throughout the year starting in January of 2020 and completed no later than December 2022. Find out more about the Arbor Day Foundation here.
We also encourage our Scaleup Creators to give back to society continuously. Pledge 1% is the perfect pledge for entrepreneurs who are starting out and have limited resources, but who still want to contribute to charitable causes right from the beginning.
In 2020, we will continue to uphold our pledge and support charitable causes. Do keep updated on our page!
