WHAT IS PLEDGE 1%?
Pledge 1% is a community of organizations who want to change the world through inspiring early–stage corporate philanthropy. Pledge 1% is an easy way to leverage a portion of a company’s future success to support charities and nonprofits in any community. It’s a small commitment today that can make a huge impact tomorrow.
Matt Bullock took the Pledge in 2015 alongside Scott Farquhar from Atlassian, another successful Australian company. He made this Pledge1% as the Founder and CEO of eWAY. In April, 2016, Matt Bullock sold eWAY and transferred the Foundation to Spinify his new business venture.
The Spinify Foundation is a registered Charity in Australia and support such nonprofit organizations as OzHarvest (the first perishable food rescue organisation in Australia), Ronald McDonald House (who keep families close to seriously ill children) and the Kiln Incubator in Canberra (which assists entrepreneurs and start-up companies in Canberra).
