Connecting Businesses, Foundations and Individuals in support of OnePercent for Education Nonprofit Partners

Demographics should not be reliable predictors of a child’s educational opportunities or outcomes.

We believe that all children deserve the opportunities, resources and supports they need to reach their full potential.

OnePercent for Education exists to make this a reality — because we all have a stake in education!

Donate Now

We work to accelerate and amplify resources to our trusted, vetted Nonprofit Partners.

We’re committed to cultivating knowledge capital that supports our Partner Cohort, our allies and our broad base of stakeholders.

We’re proud to unveil a significant new resource for those working with and for Bay Area children and youth:

Bay Area Education Data Snapshot

Developed in collaboration with the data and research experts at Children Now, The Bay Area Education Data Snapshot report

establishes a regional baseline for educational equity data across a dozen key indicators from the

2023 California County Scorecard of Children’s Well-Being.

The Bay Area Education Data Snapshot also compiles the complete data reports

from the Scorecard for each Bay Area County in the appendices.

We offer this tool to spur data-driven, innovative approaches to advancing educational equity and justice.

Our Focus Areas

OnePercent for Education Nonprofit Partners provide crucial supports in these key areas:

Early Childhood Learning Parental Involvement

Early Childhood Education

Out-of-Classroom Experiences

Social Emotional Learning

Restorative Practices

Academic Support

College and Career

College and Career
Access and Success


Even the most well-resourced public schools cannot advance educational equity on their own. Data reveal that children thrive within community schools that take a whole-child approach supported by effective partnerships with nonprofit organizations.

Community-based nonprofit organizations play a critical role in improving educational and life outcomes, yet too many Bay Area nonprofits are underfunded and struggling to meet demand. Our pledging members provide these life-changing organizations with greater funding and volunteer support to reach more children and youth.

The Role of OnePercent for Education:

We identify and carefully evaluate educationally-focused nonprofit organizations and approve a select group as OnePercent for Education Nonprofit Partners.

Businesses, foundations and individuals join our movement as members who pledge OnePercent of a source of their choosing annually in support of our Nonprofit Partners.

We make it easy for our Pledging Members to participate and they always have control over where their dollars go.

Why OnePercent for Education?

Educationally-focused nonprofits with measurable results are underfunded.

Our dynamic Nonprofit Partners augment student success in many ways including providing tutors, mentors, after-school activities, family and caregiver supports, social emotional learning, restorative practices, programs in the arts and much more.

Students receiving these services tend to stay in school, graduate and pursue further educational options that provide enhanced employment and career opportunities.
