Norms

Through the Magnify Community Pledge, we’re building a movement of donors and leaders who share our belief that local giving should be part of every Silicon Valley philanthropy portfolio.

Magnify Community Pledgers

A big thank you to the early adopters who’ve joined the movement to make Silicon Valley a better place for all of us.

Commit that 20% or more of their total annual giving will go to local community-serving organizations.

Increase their annual giving to local community-serving organizations by a specific dollar amount or percentage.

Proudly commit to continue their annual giving to local community-serving organizations at a significant dollar or percentage amount.
