Charitable Giving Program

Climb Marketing/Charitable Giving Program

Implementation Plan

Climb Marketing is committed to supporting the communities where our employees live and work. As we thrive, we want to be sure that a portion of that good fortune flows back into the communities that have sustained us. To support this notion, and in accordance with several of our Core Values, Climb Marketing engages in a variety of corporate giving activities, including our innovative employee-led Charitable Giving Program. Each year, we commit to donating one-third of our net profits in accordance with the following implementation plan.

Annual Donation Amount and Distribution Process

Climb Marketing is committed to donating ⅓ of our net profit annually to employee-selected and company-approved non-profit organizations. Climb Marketing’s President will determine this dollar amount at the beginning of each year, based on the profit generated the year prior. This number will be determined once the books have been closed and reconciled for the previous year and annual profit may be accurately determined, no later than January 31st.

The dollar amount of contributions that each of our team members may designate is a function of their proportional share of the total number of hours worked in the year, following this formula, rounded to the nearest $500:

Employee Contribution Amount = (Total Work Hours Logged for the Year by Each Employee/Total Work Hours Logged for the Year across the Entire Company) x Total Amount of Charitable Donations to Be Disbursed

To simplify the administration of the charitable donation program, each individual donation shall be at least $500 (thus rounding to the nearest $500).
