Making an impact on the world shouldn't be hard, however...
Choosing charities can be tricky.
To make it easier, we’ve partnered with 16 trusted Kiwi-based charities across a range of worthy causes. Their financials, governance and effectiveness have been scrutinised by our Board of Trustees and are reviewed annually. Choose the charities which resonate with you, or give to all 16 charities with one quick signup.
I'm not sure how much to give.
As our name suggests, we believe giving 1% of your income is an ideal amount to start with. For the average Kiwi, that's around $10 a week. We also make it easy to adjust your regular donation up or down when your circumstances change. You can even take a giving holiday if you need to.
Charities always ask me for more.
We hear ya! That's why we started One Percent Collective –to make a donor experience that we'd enjoy and that our friends would love. We NEVER tell you how much to give and we NEVER ask you for more than you’re already giving.
100% Thanks to...
Meet the team
We run a super lean 1% machine with a tiny part-time team. We rock things day to day with the equivalent hours of just one fulltime employee and a sprinkle of overtime.
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.
Sheridan is an operations specialist and a bit of a wiz with a spreadsheet. He’s developed his skillset through several years in financial services and, more recently, through running his own business. Sheridan jumped at the chance to join as our Head of Operations, seeing it as a perfect alignment with his passion for charity and impact-focussed businesses.
