Even our best public schools cannot solve the problem on their own. They need the partnerships provided by data-driven, proven, educationally focused nonprofits.

These life changing organizations could help more children and their families if they had greater funding and volunteer support.

The Role of OnePercent for Education:

We identify and carefully evaluate organizations worthy of public support and approve a select group as OnePercent for Education Nonprofit Members.

Businesses, foundations and individuals join our movement as members who will pledge 1% of an appropriate amount annually in direct support of our Nonprofit Members.

Why OnePercent for Education?

  • Educationally focused nonprofits with measurable results are underfunded.
  • Many students are subject to stressors that impact healthy brain development, leaving them unprepared to focus on academics.
  • Students experiencing multiple Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACES) are more likely to fare poorly in school, leading to dropping out and being unprepared for a career.
  • Dynamic nonprofits augment student success in many ways including providing tutors, mentors, after-school activities, family supports, restorative justice, programs in the arts and more.
  • Students receiving these services tend to stay in school, graduate and pursue further educational options that provide enhanced employment and career opportunities.
