Ostendio is proud to have joined the Pledge 1% organization, which is a corporate philanthropy movement dedicated to making the community a key stakeholder in every business. Ostendio has pledged to give 1% of our time and product to better local causes in our community.
From the beginning, we wanted to integrate a culture of giving into our company. Our corporate mission is to ensure that innovative ideas and concepts do not fail simply because of an inability to navigate critical security or regulatory obligations.
Ostendio offers employees paid time off to volunteer with causes that they are passionate about. Earlier this year, we had a team day out at Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) to bag food for their Backpack Buddies program. The Backpack Buddies program provides weekend and holiday meal packs for food-insecure Arlington County schoolchildren.
We are excited to join other companies such as Glassdoor and Salesforce in this initiative, and we know that a small commitment today can make a huge impact tomorrow.
