Is a healthy democracy important? We think so. And right now, ours needs help. When you give to One For Democracy, we make sure your contribution makes a real difference in protecting the right of each citizen to have their vote counted. Contribute your 1% and join a nationwide community working for one healthy democracy. Whether you give to the overall campaign or select specific organizations, you’ll be registering new voters, mobilizing entire communities and ensuring that every American has access to free and fair elections. And, you’ll see the progress, with regular updates on how your gift is being put to work. That’s one percent, one campaign, for one nation, working together as one.
One for Democracy began when a small group of philanthropists came together to pledge 1% of their net worth to foster a stronger democracy.
We invite donors large and small to do one thing - give 1%, or an amount significant to you, and join a nationwide community working for one healthy democracy. That’s one percent, one campaign, for one nation, working together as one.
Whether you give to the overall campaign or select specific organizations, you’ll be registering new voters, mobilizing entire communities and ensuring that every American has access to free and fair elections, especially as the voting landscape changes due to COVID-19. And, you’ll see the progress through regular impact updates on how your gift is being put to work.
Your support goes directly to:
In the 2016 election, only 56% of voting age adults participated.
Up to 16 million people encountered problems while voting in 2016.
Between 2016-18, over 17 million voters were purged from voting rolls.
More than 60% of adult citizens have never been asked to register to vote.
Every organization in the campaign has been carefully sourced and vetted so you can be sure that your support will go to the most effective projects addressing voter registration, mobilization and protection, in the year 2020 and beyond.
We're happy to share that the costs associated with administering the fund are covered by our partner, Galaxy Gives, so that 100% of your gift goes directly to the organizations addressing this urgent need.
