We believe that all children deserve the opportunities, resources and supports they need to reach their full potential.
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, individuals and families join our Culture of Participation as Members who Pledge to donate OnePercent of a source of their choosing annually in support of our Nonprofit Partners. Our Pledging Members give with confidence and ease.
When you join our Culture of Participation you facilitate educational opportunities for children and youth who need them most and demonstrate your commitment to educational equity. You also connect with those who share your passion for the success of all of our kids.
We are Solutions-Oriented and Data-Driven
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 Nonprofit Partners.
Nonprofit organizations play a critical role in improving educational and life outcomes, yet too many are underfunded and struggling to meet demand.
Our Pledging Members provide these impactful organizations with greater funding and volunteer support to reach more children and youth.

Foundations pledge to donate one percent of appropriate funds annually to vetted Nonprofit Partners.
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 with access to these types of programs and services are more likely to graduate college and career ready, and attain and complete further educational options that provide enhanced employment and career opportunities.
