LIFE AFTER EXIT

What happens after I exit?

Our in-house research team will be here to support. Whatever your values and interest, we’ll work with you to identify high-impact donation opportunities, based on the latest research and evidence.

See what our members say about the process:

CO-FOUNDER, SWIFTKEY

Engaging in philanthropy following a successful exit is one way a founder can recognise the good fortune inherent in success and 'give something back'.

I learned about Founders Pledge a year or so before my own exit, and quickly saw the value in both encouraging founders to commit to giving, and also providing a framework to facilitate the effective use of donations.

SARAH WOOD
FOUNDER, UNRULY

Altruism is always a combination of emotional and rational motivations, and it gives our lives a purpose.

Seeing Founders Pledge apply data-science to charitable giving was fascinating and really reaffirmed that this initiative was the one for me.

What I most liked about the process was that I was locked in. Sounds daft or even slightly scary, I know, but how many times do you think ‘oh I am totally going to do that’ and then it somehow falls down your priority list and you never get around to it.

I know if I hadn’t signed a Founders Pledge, that would have been me too.
