HERNDON, VA, July 11, 2022 — Riverstrong joins the Pledge 1% movement as it pledges to donate 1% of its time and profit to the community.
Inspired by the global movement to mobilize lasting change, Riverstrong has set out to make a palpable difference. The organization joins over 12,000 companies that have committed to pledging 1% of their product, profit, equity, or time to charities of their choice.
Giving back has been baked into the fabric of Riverstrong’s being since day one, and environmental conservation is among its core values. The company is proud to announce its commitment to donate 1% of its time and profit to One Tree Planted and the World Wildlife Fund. Riverstrong is thrilled to support organizations that spearhead reforestation projects and rehabilitate endangered animal populations.
Chief Executive Officer at Riverstrong, Gopi Ramineni, outlines what taking the pledge means for his organization:
“At Riverstrong, we believe in demonstrating our commitment to philanthropy by giving back in meaningful ways. Our team is highly passionate about the natural world, and if we can play a role in preserving it — we consider ourselves lucky. We’re delighted to announce that we have committed to donating our time and profit to fighting climate change and supporting conservation initiatives.”
