Why we’re introducing this option for donors...
Most of that search has been about keeping One Percent Collective sustainable into the future. Our current model isn’t broken but it does need to adapt to changes and funding challenges.
A sharp cost of living increase isn’t news. The cost of doing business has risen too. Some of our business sponsors who cover our running costs have paused their financial support of the Collective. Everyone is feeling it.
Current donations from existing donors like you aren’t a problem. We can keep those flowing to the charities in the Collective. But with more Kiwis reaching out to more charities there’s a greater need to grow the number of donors and charities in the Collective. That’s hard without reliable, sustainable funding.
In fact we make two promises. 100% of your donations go to your chosen charities and we’ll never ask you for more money than you choose to give.
We think the Friends of the Collective idea allows us to keep both of those promises. Allocating a small portion of your regular giving to keep One Percent Collective sustainable and to help us inspire more generosity in Aotearoa is entirely optional for you and for any future donors who join the Collective.
We can’t thank you enough for taking the time to learn more. So, will you be a Friend of the Collective? To join, just let us know a percentage that feels right for you here. We’ll take care of the rest.
