How it Works

Facilitating support from Business, Foundation and Individual Members to our Nonprofit Partners is what we do. We all have a stake in education and we can all make a difference when we pledge OnePercent for Education. We make it easy for you to make your impact. Our thorough vetting process ensures you can make your gifts with confidence, while our flexible pledge model enables you to readily give in accordance with your means.

Benefits of Membership

As a Business, Foundation or Individual Member you always have control over where your pledge dollars go. You can fulfill your pledge by giving directly to our Nonprofit Partners, giving to our Achievement Fund, or both and more. Our Member Donors have choices:

Option 1. Make your donation directly to our Nonprofit Partners. Use our database to determine which of our Nonprofit Partners best match your philanthropic priorities. Not sure? Reach out to us and receive personalized guidance from our knowledgable team.

Option 2. Make your donation to our Achievement Fund. We’ll carefully review your Member Donor profile and our Nonprofit Partner profiles to determine the best matches and disburse your pledge dollars to them for you.

Option 3. Let our Nonprofit Partners come to you with funding requests to fulfill your pledge. In your Member Donor profile, you’ve let us know whether you’re open to receiving funding requests from our Nonprofit Partners. This is a membership benefit, not a membership requirement. Member Donors who choose to receive direct funding requests also choose how and when to be contacted and what information our Nonprofit Partners should provide. You can use our OnePercent for Education Grant Application Form or any other request method you prefer.

Whether you choose Option 1, Option 2, Option 3 or all of the above, we’ll track your giving, ensure that every pledge dollar goes directly to our Nonprofit Partners and report to you on the impact of your gifts.

For our Nonprofit Partners

1. As a Nonprofit Partner, you may receive donations directly from our Business, Foundation or Individual Members or through our OnePercent for Education Achievement Fund.
2. We also encourage you to apply for funding from our Business, Foundation and Individual Members who have expressed a willingness to receive direct requests. Use our robust database to determine which Members to approach or reach out to us and our team will guide you.
