1% Pledge for nonprofits

Living our mission to help make the community a better place to live, learn, and work.

Our Pledge

The mission of NextStep Networking is  “To make our communities better places to live, learn, and work.”  Our mission highlights the key industries we support – nonprofit organizations, local governments, K-12 education, and small businesses.  NextStep Networking has a passion for supporting the organizations that make a difference in our communities, and the 1% pledge allows us to extend our work.  NextStep Networking donates 1% of outsourced technology contracts to our nonprofit partners. We also donate 1% of our for-profit partners contracts to a nonprofit partner of their choice.  They are able to use these funds for any need they may have.

Any NextStep Networking business client with an outsourced technology agreement may select a NextStep Networking nonprofit partner to receive a donation equal to 1% of that agreement.
