At the end of 2015 we joined our friends in the Atlassian Ecosystem in committing to a new corporate giving initiative – Pledge 1%. Since then we’ve been joined by hundreds of tech companies who have all agreed to donate 1% of either their yearly profits, equity, product, or employee time to not-for-profit causes. We’re pleased to announce that once again Comalatech has kept our Pledge 1% promise in 2018.
The giving process started the same as in previous years, on a Confluence page where the team determines the charities and causes we’d like to support. This year we’ve donated to 28 different charities, a mixture of well-known international charities and local community-based organizations. New causes we supported in 2018 include One Girl Can, Whitebird Clinic, FISANIM AC, and Gautena. We’re so glad to be able pass on some of our success to causes that mean a great deal to us, and we’re sure to do the same in 2019.
