WePledge 1%

Drive employee engagement with volunteering and giving

WePledge 1% is Twilio’s employee impact movement to drive lasting social change on a global scale.

Build your impact with WePledge 1%.

WePledge 1% is powered by Twilio, in partnership with Pledge 1%. The WePledge 1% movement empowers employees to be changemakers in their communities by pledging 1% of their time, money, or equity to causes they care about.

Support causes you care about as a Twilion

Twilio supports and empowers its employees, called Twilions, to “live their pledge” with year-round virtual and in-person opportunities to give and volunteer, 20 hours of paid volunteer time off each year, $500 USD in annual donation matching, and the option to donate equity. WePledge 1%  allows employees to set intentions for how they want to align their values with their actions.

Uplevel employee impact at your organization

Twilio.org offers an accelerator program to help leaders launch the program at their companies. Over the course of five months, participants receive a turnkey toolkit and access to a practitioner network that makes it easier to initiate or improve employee impact at no cost.

Living the pledge

Tackling food insecurity in Portland

Tanya, a Twilion based in Portland, is actively engaged with Move for Hunger, an organization whose mission is to reduce food insecurity and food waste.

 

 

 

“I believe that a single individual has the power to make a difference. I feel both supported by Twilio with time off to volunteer and funds to donate, and leadership to actively be involved in making a difference."

Tanya Mariottini, Director, Global Mobility, Twilio

Cycling to find a cure

United by their love of cycling,  KP Pimpini and Kris Payne started setting out on regular bike rides together. They rallied their friends, family and colleagues to support Tour De Cure, an Australian charity that raises money to fund cancer research, support, and prevention programs.

 

“I’m always looking for ways to support my community and leverage Twilio’s support and resources to extend my personal impact.

Kris Payne, Solutions Architect, Twilio

WePledge 1% corporate members

Studies show that companies with a giving program have a higher employee retention rate than those without one, and WePledge 1% is a proven tactic that addresses employees’ desire to have a greater sense of purpose at work. 

Twilio invites leaders at like-minded companies such as Atlassian, Box, and Zoom to launch WePledge 1% at your company.
