Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

94% of charitable giving from the U.S. private-sector supports non-profit causes within the U.S, with a fraction of a fraction of one percent of Americans' income being donated to organizations for work addressing extreme poverty in the world's poorest places. Annually, the people and companies of the U.S. donate over $390 billion to charity and we believe a higher proportion of these gifts should be used to support work that alleviates the most urgent forms of poverty and injustice around the world.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We're inviting you to join in a sustainable, committed movement of regular humanitarian giving. When donors determine and commit to giving a consistent percentage of their income that is both appropriate to their values and sustainable for their budget, they are enabled to give most effectively over the long-term in a way which is most beneficial for recipient field organizations who do the life-saving work we support.

Our nonprofit partners need more money to save more lives. We seek to provide them with additional funding that is consistent, predictable and costs them nothing to raise. Consistent grants are most sustainable for them and allow them to budget most accurately and effectively long-term. Hence, monthly recurring gifts help donors to maximize their impact and we encourage them to choose a sustainable giving amount that works long-term within their personal budget. This also enables 1% for Humanity to create, sustain, and grow a larger residual source of maximum impact funding for our NGO partners.

Some features of our simple giving platform:

Diversification of Giving – A single monthly gift supports multiple trusted nonprofits working in over 120 countries.

Simplicity of Choice – We've already selected humanitarian partners we trust that work with intelligence, integrity and effectiveness in the parts of the world with the highest need for aid and development.

Peace of Mind – Rather than reactively deciding when to respond to certain crises or emergencies, you can know your 1% gifts are already being used to help.

Collective Impact – Your giving commitment can inspire others to participate and contributes to the overall momentum of the 1% movement.

No fundraising costs - 100% of Gifts received from our Members are granted directly to Field Partners.

In 2017, we completed our first round of grant commitments of $125,000, with just a handful of members giving each month. Now we grant funds to each of our 5 field partners every month on an ongoing basis with no limit to the amount of funds to be granted. We hope for thousands to join us in giving this way, and dream of providing six figures of annual funding to each of our partners at zero cost to them.
