to our Nonprofit Partners

Individual Membership

Individuals and families pledge to donate OnePercent of net worth or income to our Nonprofit Partners year-over-year. As an Individual Member, you always have control over where your donations go. Prefer to pledge a specific dollar amount? That’s ok. We allow for complete flexibility in your pledge.

How It Works

We make donating easy:

• Choose one or more of our 31 Nonprofit Partner(s) to receive your donation
• Not sure? Contact us and we’ll discuss how your donation can have the greatest impact
• Still not sure? Don’t worry. We’ll disburse the donations for you based on your profile and our unique Matching System.

One of our core beliefs is that people like you want to do more. We heartily encourage you to get involved and volunteer with our Nonprofit Partners. When you log in to our Pledging Members web-portal, you’ll enjoy access to our Volunteer Opportunities Dashboard. You can explore Partner needs and express your interest in the opportunities best for you. Our system makes it easy for you to connect.

When you sign up as an Individual Member, you:

  • Do something meaningful for your community by supporting Nonprofit Partners dedicated to enhancing educational outcomes.
  • Give with confidence knowing that your donations are going to vetted organizations with measurable results.
  • Enjoy rights to use our logo to show your commitment to children and youth.

Our Member sign-up process is simple and quick. Most new members are reporting that their sign-up required between 2-5 minutes to complete. Once we receive your information, you’ll be able to activate your Individual and Family Member benefits right away. Have questions?

A Note from our Board Chair

With great sadness, we regret to inform you that the Board of Directors has decided to wind down and dissolve OnePercent for Education; and the organization has initiated the dissolution process. One of our primary goals was to galvanize members of the business community who had not participated or had not fully participated in social engagement. Another goal was to engage individuals and families in our work for educational equity.

We continue to believe that there are people who care deeply about the issue and that there are significant financial resources that can be generated to support this movement. Despite our efforts, OnePercent for Education was unsuccessful in generating enough funding to achieve financial sustainability at this difficult time.

Every decision made was through the lens of how we can best bring support for the kids who need it the most. This is the work that our Nonprofit Partners deliver every day and will continue to do. Our Board of Directors will individually continue to promote their efforts and encourage support of their work. As we wind down, we are distributing as much of our remaining assets as possible to our Nonprofit Partners. While each Nonprofit Partner has received modest funding, this is far less than we had hoped, given the importance of their activities.

We urge each of you to support our Nonprofit Partners in the fulfillment of their missions as it so deeply impacts the communities they serve.

Finally, we thank you for your support of OnePercent for Education.
