Pledge 1% Profile: Why Giving Back Is So Important
Data Geeks Lab was profiled by Pledge 1% about why they joined the Pledge 1% movement and why giving back to the community is so important.
After almost 30 years in the nonprofit sector, TJ Warfield created her own company, Data Geeks Lab, which provides Salesforce setup, coding, and consulting services exclusively for non-profits. Because community is part of Data Geeks Lab’s core values, TJ joined the Pledge 1%.
But when she recently audited her contributions, she realized she was way off track. While her company makes annual charitable donations equal to about 1% of gross income, her direct service hours are way over 1%. In fact, donated staff time makes up 17% of billable hours.
And TJ isn’t planning on reducing this amount anytime soon.
