One for the World asks students and alumni to donate 1% of their income to most effective charities working to end extreme poverty. Our goal is to educate the Villanova community on extreme poverty and effective giving, as well as, to raise money for these evidence-backed non-profits that help the world's poorest and most vulnerable people. 

We have developed a rigorous process for evaluating non-profits and have identified the most effective organizations in this space: The Against Malaria Foundation, GiveDirectly, Possible, Living Goods and Population Services International.

We are starting the movement at Villanova University and would love for you to join us!


We are currently looking for passionate and dedicated students to help build the One for the World leadership team at Villanova! If you are interested in helping bring an end to extreme poverty, we have Committee Chair and Member positions available, as well as, Student Ambassador positions. We are going to need all hands on deck next semester, so whatever your talents or interests may be, we would love to have you on our team! 

If you'd like to get involved please send us a copy of your resume with the subject line: Spring 2018 Leadership App to, and fill out this Google Form by December 31st. Decisions for Committee Chairs and Members, as well as, Student Ambassadors will be emailed out by January 9th.



Why did you choose to get involved with OFTW?

“I think almost everybody knows that people are suffering in the developing world and most people want to do something to help. I was certainly in that boat. I didn’t know how to turn my good intentions into action that would make a difference. One for the World allows me to go from good intentions to good action and help fight to end extreme poverty around the world.”

-Evan McVail, Co-President & Chapter Founder


Why did you choose to get involved with OFTW?

“I got involved with One for the World because each of us, at one point or another, were given a chance. A chance to learn, a chance to explore the world, a chance to live. Over 10 million children each year aren’t give those chances. I always wanted to help but my intentions never became actions. One for the World changed all of that. OFTW allows me to fight extreme poverty by giving those 10 million kids and their families a chance and thats an incredible gift to give!”

- Gillian Wangler, Co-President
