Praecipio Consulting has been an active member of Pledge 1%, the movement to build corporate philanthropy, since 2015. The mission-driven non-profit asks members to pledge 1% of equity, 1% of time, and 1% of profits to a variety of charitable causes. Praecipio Consulting has fostered on-going relationships with the Colorado River Alliance, Dam that Cancer, TreeFolks, and the Coastal Conservation Association, to name a few, since becoming involved with the Pledge 1% initiative.
Our most recent “Do good in the world” event was participating in the Team Coleson Golf Tournament fundraiser, where the proceeds went to benefit JDRF Austin, an organization that champions for millions of adults and children affected by type 1 diabetes (T1D). Praecipio Consulting identified with JDRF because of their commitment “... to funding research that improves life for people at all ages and stages of the disease.”
On September 28, 2019 at Avery Ranch, Praecipio Consulting’s team members Esme Huber and David Gorder played their hearts out, knowing that the competition was all in good fun, but stakes were high for those suffering from the disease. Each dollar raised would go towards critical research to identify everything from how to have a higher quality of life (even while being afflicted by T1D), to eradicating the disease entirely. Team Coleson’s campaign has raised to date $52,700 for JDRF Austin.
We are deeply humbled that our staff would volunteer their personal time to help families cope with the autoimmune disease that affects millions of Americans—both young and old. JDRF works tirelessly to find preventions and better treatments through critical research, in order to—hopefully, one day—find a cure for type 1 diabetes.
