Happy Giving Tuesday! In honor of this exciting day of charity, we're returning to host and Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly's conversation with Tim Smith, Senior Director of The Boston Foundation and Head of Pledge 1% Boston. Tim and Danielle discuss the importance of strategic cross-sector partnerships and how philanthropy includes much more than just donating money, like volunteering and giving resources or expertise.
We are so excited to welcome Tim Smith, Senior Director of The Boston Foundation and Head of Pledge 1% Boston chapter, powered by The Boston Foundation to Pro Bono Perspectives this week. In his day-to-day work with The Boston Foundation, Tim advises individuals and companies in the region on a variety of philanthropic offerings including Donor Advised Funds.
Another one of our favorite communities of practice is the Pledge 1% initiative, pioneered by Salesforce.com. Pledge 1% is a global movement that encourages and challenges both individuals and companies to Pledge 1% of equity, profit, product, and time for their communities.
