Foundation Members

How Does A Foundation Join?

Foundations pledge to donate OnePercent of appropriate funds annually to vetted Nonprofit Partners of OnePercent for Education. Pledging Member Foundations enjoy the right to use the OnePercent for Education logo as a way to communicate their commitment to educational equity.

We’ve done the heavy lifting to build a sound portfolio of cradle-to-career approaches across six focus areas grounded in the science of learning and development to advance educational equity throughout the Bay Area. All of our Nonprofit Partners adhere to our Standards of Excellence.

How It Works

When signing up, Foundation Members create a profile indicating their preferences regarding how they want their funds disbursed. Foundations can designate geographical areas, programmatic interests, age of recipients and more. When Foundation Members fulfill their pledges, we use the profile to match funder preferences to the Nonprofit Partner(s) whose programs and services best meet member grant-making criteria. Foundation Members can also designate one or more specific Nonprofit Partners to receive their grants. We provide as much support in grant-making as our Foundation Members require.

When Foundations Participate, they:

  • Help shape the future for nonprofit programming yielding measurable results in educational equity.
  • Save valuable staff time in evaluating eligible grant recipients and impacts of funded programs and services.
  • Contribute to a more equitable and vibrant Bay Area.
  • Strengthen the movement for educational equity through display of the OnePercent for Education logo.
