MediaMath, the leading independent programmatic company for marketers, today announced it is allocating 1% of equity to charity via MediaMath.org, as a Pledge 1% partner. MediaMath will commit 1% of their time, technology, and resources to MediaMath.org – MediaMath’s philanthropic arm – as a part of the partnership with Pledge 1%, a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business.

MediaMath.org is joining a network of more than 2,700 companies in 60 countries that have committed to philanthropic efforts through Pledge 1%. In 2016, MediaMath launched MediaMath.org, including the rollout of volunteer and donation matching policies. MediaMath.org is founded on the idea of integrated philanthropy; combining charitable giving with the company’s technology and talent to help improve communities around the world. Since its inception, MediaMath.org has made a measurable impact, from serving food to the homeless in London to funding eyesight surgeries in Cambodia. MediaMath.org currently supports a growing list of nonprofits including Seva, BUILD.org, and others.

“I’m delighted to announce that MediaMath is adding 1% of our equity to our original pledge,” said Joe Zawadzki, Chairman, CEO and Co-Founder of MediaMath. “Giving back is a core value for us, and MediaMath.org has allowed our company to formalize our efforts and align resources, leading us to have more of an impact around the world. I’m very proud of what we’ve accomplished to date, and am extremely excited about what’s in our future.”

“We are thrilled that MediaMath has extended their Pledge 1% movement to now include equity,” said Suzanne DiBianca, EVP of Corporate Relations and Chief Philanthropy Officer of Salesforce. “By adding equity to their existing time and technology commitments, MediaMath will be able to send funds directly to nonprofits, which will have a significant impact as their business continues to grow.”
