WePledge 1%: How ACers Go Above and Beyond to Give Back to Their Communities


Since ActiveCampaign originated, giving back has been a core value for our business. With this in mind it is important for us to find people to join our team that also share this drive and passion for providing for others. This year as we celebrate with our ActiveImpact Summit, we wanted to share stories of some of our peers who wholeheartedly embody the charitable qualities that go hand in hand with being an ACer. To kick off our week of spotlight stories, let’s chat about what ActiveImpact is, how it works, and its goals.

ActiveImpact is ActiveCampaign’s philanthropic arm. As a member of Pledge1%, ActiveImpact serves as the vehicle for ActiveCampaign and our employees to give back to our communities. Our efforts are guided by our company value to pursue Growth with Gratitude and we offer up to 24 hours of volunteer time off (VTO) and $500 donation matching to all of our employees each year. 

Furthering our commitment to support our employees to do good in the world, we recently joined WePledge1%, which is a movement started by Twilio in partnership with Pledge1% that invites employees to pledge one percent of their own time, talent or financial resources to causes that are personally meaningful to them. 

This September, we are holding the inaugural ActiveImpact Summit, which is a weeklong internal program that has been thoughtfully curated to bring our team together around ways that we can make a difference. We’ll be participating in days of collective action, roundtable discussions on social justice philanthropy, and even customer innovation as we look to support our nonprofit customers as they prepare for GivingTuesday

Around the globe our teams are activating their impact. In Dublin, the team has organized a beach cleanup for #thebigbeachclean2022. In Australia, the team is fundraising, training and driving awareness for R U OK Day, a national suicide prevention campaign taking place on September 8th. And here at our HQ in Chicago, we’re heading to the Greater Chicago Food Depository to learn and volunteer in support of Hunger Action Month. 

Our ActiveCampaign team is driven by purpose. This week we will share a few stories about what inspires us to give back.
