IRVINE, Calif., Aug. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Roy Dekel, and the SetSchedule Cares Foundation launches a campaign to donate to charitable organizations through employee matching and volunteer time. Over the past year, SetSchedule has raised and donated $30,000 for charities like the American Technion Society (ATS), the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, the American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and Larger than Life.
Today, SetSchedule has started a campaign that hopes to continue to increase giving, and donations year after year, by looking inward and making the staff at SetSchedule a part of the community effort. We have started a movement with the cooperation of the SetSchedule Cares Foundation, by matching contributions to more than 19,000 charities. As an initial operation, we have high hopes for success and since inception have already received $8,500 in pledges.
"By incorporating our staff in the process they have an opportunity to build and enrich our community, Said Roy Dekel, SetSchedule CEO. "Together, we can all help nonprofits achieve their missions faster. Every dollar and hour donated makes a difference."
The effort has come a long way from the companies' annual beach cleanups. To further a culture of philanthropy, the SetSchedule Cares Foundation has a solid three year initiative to grow the foundation and has a plan to bring in $1.5 Million dollars in donations by the summer of 2020. SetSchedule matches cash contributions of its U.S. employees or donates $25 per hour for time volunteered with approved nonprofit organizations. SetSchedule pledges to match each employees' donations up to $2,500 annually, and encourages all employees to donate, making the foundation, and contributions a community affair.
