Here at Prodege (home to leading consumer reward platforms, Swagbucks, MyPoints and ShopAtHome) giving back is so ingrained in our day to day that it’s one of the core values of the company. In fact, our Founder & President, Josef Gorowitz, recently told BuiltInLA, “ We strongly believe that charitable giving and volunteering is one of the greatest things we can do personally and as a company.”
That’s why for over 4 years, Prodege has been a partner of charitable platform, Pledgeling, and has been able to donate over $53K to charitable organizations. Each quarter, our employees are encouraged to give back by utilizing an individual stipend (deposited by the company) to donate to their charity(s) of choice within the Pledgeling ecosystem.
This quarter, ahead of the busy shopping season, we decided to take a different approach by turning to the 40 million registered members on our consumer site, Swagbucks. We asked our members to individually select their top charity on our “Daily Poll” from a list of the most popular charities Prodege employees have ever donated to.
We’re happy to say, this year, Prodege will be donating an equal split of $10,000 to the charities listed below!
- American Cancer Society
- American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)
- Alzheimer’s Association
- St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
- Wounded Warrior Project
We hope that just in time for Giving Tuesday we’re all able to give a little bit back to those that most need it. A recent survey we conducted found that most Americans are feeling generous this year, with 77 percent of Americans admitting that they would be more willing to shop with a brand that donates to a charitable cause, and 82 percent revealing that they are somewhat likely or very likely to donate to a charitable cause while shopping.
We’re proud to continue the partnership with Pledgeling, and look forward to continuing to Create Rewarding Moments for our members.
