Foundation Membership

How Does A Foundation Join?

Foundations pledge to donate one percent of appropriate funds annually to vetted nonprofit members of OnePercent for Education. They agree to have their donated amounts verified annually. In exchange for their membership, foundations have the right to use the OnePercent for Education logo.

Foundations may make donations directly to one or more nonprofit members.

How It Works

While foundations are eager to participate, some may prefer not to field inquiries from nonprofit members. These members can utilize the OnePercent for Education Achievement Fund for foundations who want a bit more assistance. Foundation Members when enrolled, will indicate their preferences regarding how they want their funds disbursed. Foundations can designate geographical area, programmatic interest, age of recipients and more. Members choosing this option write a check to the OnePercent for Education Achievement. Once funds are received, our Achievement Fund database will match donor preferences to the nonprofit(s) whose services are the best match.

Foundations are assessed a 3% membership fee based on their donations. Licensees may include their membership fees as part of their donation. They may opt out of membership at any time but are prohibited from using the OnePercent logo or mention of their affiliation once they are unaffiliated.
