We’re a small team based in Wellington out to make donating 1% of your income to charities easy and a really great experience. We’ve been around six years and have raised over one million dollars for the charities we partner with.
Our board of trustees review and select some of the best smallish Kiwi-based charities out there so that you don’t have to, then we make it easy to share one regular donation between as many of them as you like. Your charities receive regular funding, which frees them up to be innovative and focus their efforts on the issues they exist to solve, and we focus on connecting you with the impact your 1% has on people in the community through regular stories and events.
The best part is that 1% is diddly squat, but it adds up quick. There’s hundreds of generous people currently donating their 1%, and we’d love to see this be the norm here in Aotearoa and all around the world.
Pat was inspired to start One Percent Collective after 6 weeks volunteering on the Thai/Burma border with migrant and refugee children from Burma. He used his creative background in photography and design to bring the idea to life. Learn more about Pat’s story here.
How do the board select our partner charities and pass on 100% of your donations?
Be Open. Be Human. Be Real. Not rocket science, just an authentic way to approach giving.
