Business Members

How Does A Business Join?

Business Members pledge to donate OnePercent of an appropriate source annually. For some businesses, that means OnePercent of sales, for others OnePercent of revenue, and for others OnePercent of a product line or corporate division. What’s important is that when you become a Member your business is engaged in support of educational equity. No business is too large or too small to make a positive impact for our Nonprofit Partners and the children and families they serve. We’re happy to work with you to establish a comfort level about which you feel great!

The Membership Process

When you click on the Sign-Up button, you will be directed to Create Your Account. Enter basic information about your business and create your business login.

Once this has been done, you can complete your Business Member registration and sign the Pledge Agreement. You’ll be able to submit your logo and set up your Member profile.

How It Works

Business Members always have complete control over which Nonprofit Partners receive their donations. Business Members choose one or more of our Nonprofit Partners. Not sure? OnePercent for Education experts are available to advise Business Members.

Still not sure? No problem. When Business Members enroll, they indicate their preferences regarding how they want their funds disbursed. Businesses can designate geographical area, programmatic interest, age of recipients and more. Based on these preferences, we will match Business Member donations with the Nonprofit Partner(s) who best meet the criteria. Additionally, Business Members can count the time given to employees to volunteer during working hours for up to 1/3 of their annual pledge.
