The PartnerReady Foundation is a dream and vision fulfilled.
The co-founders of PartnerReady are both alumnus of Salesforce. They had the opportunity to live and witness the charitable nature of Salesforce's Ohana culture, and they firmly believe in Marc Benioff’s vision of a philanthropic 1-1-1 Model. Now as company owners themselves, they had the opportunity to put their beliefs in action and did so in 2020 by committing to the Pledge 1% movement. Pledge 1% was created through a partnership of Salesforce, Atlassian, and Rally to help companies adopt and carry out the 1-1-1 model. PartnerReady has now joined thousands of companies that likewise have made the pledge.
The PartnerReady Foundation was created as a separate non-profit corporation chartered specifically to be the steward of PartnerReady's 1% pledge. PartnerReady has committed to contribute 1% of its time, 1% of its services, and 1% of its profits to benefit communities around the organization. In PartnerReady's case there was a strong desire by the founders to give back to the partnership community and profession that has been so nurturing in their careers. Early initiatives will be focused on different aspects of this mission.
The PartnerReady Foundation's first major initiative is the launch of PartnerProfessional.org, an independent industry portal for the partner professional. The goal of PartnerProfessional.org is to become the definitive, single place where partner professionals can find everything they need to do his/her job, and to help advance his/her career. This portal is completely neutral. Proceeds to run the site are paid for by a grant from this foundation and the portal will not take membership or advertising fees from any parties in order to maintain its neutrality.
