Standards Of Excellence

OnePercent for Education Nonprofit Partners meet the highest Standards of Excellence. Our vetting and selection process for potential Nonprofit Partners involves multiple steps. Prospective partners begin by filling out our online application. This initial screening tool allows us to ascertain the degree to which the organization meets our essential criteria. We then conduct a thorough review of the organization’s programs and services and engage in interviews and site visits where applicable to assess the organization’s impact. For the final step in our vetting process, we share our Standards of Excellence.

Our Standards of Excellence detail specific criteria across 28 metrics for success addressing Nonprofit Governance, Finance, Programs and Administration. In order to qualify for funding and use of our logo, Nonprofit Partners must certify that they meet our Standards of Excellence. Once admitted into our cohort, Nonprofit Partners re-certify every 5 years.
