Pledge 1% – Our Vision for the Future
Cangler is incredibly excited and proud to pledge 25% of our equity, and a minimum of 1% of our time, profits & product to the community.
From the very early stages, we wish to establish giving back and corporate philanthropy as a core part of our values, culture, and identity. The first, and primary, cause we will back is provide funding for The National Homeless Collective so they can implement a pilot program to bring about a sustainable and scalable solution for homelessness. In addition, we will also support medical research into a range of health diseases, with a primary interest in supporting research for the prevention and treatment of epilepsy. We will work with the medical industry to make our technology available for free to provide medical data scientists with the tools to help them in their pursuit of knowledge and cures.
Pledge 1% is a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. Pledge 1% challenges individuals and companies to pledge 1% of equity, product, and employee time for their communities. The Pledge 1% movement already boasts an impressive roster of entrepreneurs, executives, founders, venture capitalists and companies who have pledged to improve their local communities, including Box, Optimizely and Yelp.
We are very proud and excited to join the Pledge 1% movement and work together to contribute to the greater good and make the world a better place for all.
