Do you care about the return on your investment? Have you ever given money to philanthropy and wondered if that was the most effective way to donate? If you answered yes to either of these questions, One for the World (OFTW) would like to get you involved in our Charity Selection Process!
There are two ways you can help!
Apply to be a part of the Charity Selection Committee - bit.ly/oftw_app. Read more about the role and responsibilities below.
Nominate an organization at bit.ly/oftw_nominations. Provide suggestions for highly effective organizations that we should consider as part of our research.
