Nonprofit Partnership

How Does a Nonprofit Become a Partner?

Nonprofit Partner Eligibility

The overarching goal of OnePercent for Education is to ensure that all children receive the opportunities, resources and supports they need to reach their full potential. Our Nonprofit Partners are proven, equity-driven organizations that provide crucial programs and services to children, their families and caregivers and their schools. Their programs and services result in improved educational outcomes for all children, especially those living in historically marginalized communities and under-resourced, underserved communities. Federally recognized nonprofit organizations who meet OnePercent for Education’s strict criteria are eligible for Nonprofit Partner status.

Nonprofit Partner eligibility is for five years and will be reviewed at the fifth anniversary to determine continued eligibility. There are no fees associated with nonprofit partnership. We want to generate as much funding and support as possible for our valuable, educationally-focused Nonprofit Partners.

Nonprofit organizations eligible for partnership include those providing programs and services such as:

After School Academic & Enrichment
College Access and Success
Early Childhood Learning
Environmental Education
Family Engagement

Job Training Programs
Mental Health Services
Restorative Practices
Social-Emotional Learning

Special Needs Students
Student and Family Well-Being
Summer Programs

The Application Process

Nonprofit 501(c)(3) designated organizations working in the field of education and related services for children and their families are required to complete the Nonprofit Partner Application. OnePercent for Education staff will initiate a comprehensive review to determine suitability for Nonprofit Partnership. A nonprofit may be engaging in profoundly successful work, but may not fit within the criteria for OnePercent for Education partnership. Upon review, successful nonprofit applicants will be asked to sign our Nonprofit Partnership Agreement.

How It Works

Nonprofit Partners may receive funds directly from our Business, Foundation and Individual Members.

Our Nonprofit Partners may also receive funds via the OnePercent for Education Achievement Fund. Information provided on the Nonprofit Partner Application will be entered into our searchable database in order to match donor preferences to nonprofit programs and services provided.

Once accepted into our cohort, Nonprofit Partners can contact our Business, Foundation and Individual Members who are accepting funding requests directly for donations. They may be asked to utilize the OnePercent for Education Funding Request Application or another submission protocol preferred by our Members.

Nonprofit Partners will certify the receipt of donations as well as submit an annual report detailing the use of funds received.
