BURLINGTON, VT -- 1% for the Planet is excited to announce the addition of several new staff positions to support its mission of growing a global movement that is accelerating smart environmental giving.

“We’ve experienced significant growth, adding 338 new members in the first half of 2018 alone,” said Kate Williams, CEO of 1% for the Planet. “These hires build our capacity to better support and share the story of our extensive network of innovative businesses, individuals, and non-profits."

The three new hires include one Vermont resident and two individuals who moved to Vermont for the opportunity to work with 1% for the Planet.

Allyson Bartlett will step into the position of Brand Manager where she will oversee 1% for the Planet’s marketing efforts. Named one of Vermont Rising Stars under 40, Allyson has more than eight years of communications and marketing experience with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Vermont.

“In addition to a robust professional background working with a member-driven organization, she brings a strong personal passion for protecting the planet,” Williams continued. “We are thrilled to welcome Allyson to our team.”

The second addition to the 1% team is Ally Vitale. In her role as Membership Manager, she partners with businesses and individual members to grow their environmental giving. Ally comes to 1% for the Planet after spending nearly a decade working for nonprofit partner The National Outdoor Leadership School and environmental startups, including a 1% for the Planet member business, gaining an acute understanding of the most pressing issues facing our planet.

“Our members are the backbone of the work we do at 1% for the planet. Ally’s decade of experience in both the business and nonprofit sectors is an invaluable addition to our team as we continue to grow our global movement,” Williams said.

Gabby Makatura joins the team as a Nonprofit Manager. Gabby focuses on strengthening 1%’s nonprofit network and helping to connect members with impactful nonprofits. Before joining 1%, Gabby recently completed her master's degree in environmental sustainability, planning, and management at the University of Colorado, Boulder where she finished her thesis work with 1% nonprofit partner, Protect Our Winters. Williams believes that Gabby’s “experience with POW, local food banks, AmeriCorps, and other nonprofits have shaped her passion for environmental action and nonprofits, and that aligns wonderfully with 1%’s mission.”

“Our core mission is to connect dollars and doers, and our nonprofit doers are where we collectively make our impact. Gabby’s role is crucial in ensuring that our members are supporting world-class nonprofits who have the most effective impact possible,” Williams said.
