OUR
SOLUTION.

We believe that there is a smart way for students to help fight poverty. If we give collectively and effectively, we can not only move the needle on some of the issues plaguing the world’s poorest, but we can completely eradicate these problems.

One for the World (OFTW) is creating a movement that makes charitable giving part of our daily lives. Together, we can end extreme poverty, so let’s start today. Make the pledge and join the movement.

Our goal is for students and alumni to:

  • We critically assess which charities are having the most impact
  • We understand the incredible impact we can have with just 1% of our income
  • We appreciate the benefits of making philanthropy and giving part of our identity early in life
  • We make it easy to donate by recommending effective charities evaluated through a rigorous process.
  • We make donating seamless by providing a simple donation platform, tax-deductible receipts, and reports on where our money is going and the impact it is having.
  • We are creating a culture of giving so that it is widespread and celebrated

OUR
VISION.

Create a movement of giving that extends beyond Wharton. We started at Wharton, where the annual class of 840 students could raise over $1,000,000 per year.

Individually, we can touch the lives of thousands of people. Just 1% of the average Wharton student’s weekly salary would provide over 200 children de-worming treatments, keeping them healthy and in school.

But our goal is to expand around the world. Imagine that a few years from now, thousands of students across the globe will be consciously and thoughtfully giving because of a movement that started at Wharton.

Together, we can change the status quo and give a billion people a chance at life, something we take for granted each day.

Giving should be widespread and celebrated.
1% of the developed world's income can eliminate extreme poverty. Let it start with you.

Our
Charities.

There are hundreds of non-profits that you can choose to give to, and the process of selecting which organization to support can feel like a daunting task. But you don't have to do all the research yourself. One for the World has partnered with The Life You Can Save to compile its list of recommended charities based on extensive research and analysis. One for the World’s portfolio consists of 18 highly effective charities, of which we have designated 5 as One for the World Top Picks. You can read more about our selection process here.
