What is 1%CLUB?

The 1%Club is the online market place for small-scale development projects, where individuals and businesses can directly offer 1% of their time, knowledge and income to a project of their choice. At the 1%Club you decide yourself to which project you want to give 1% of your time, knowledge or money. It’s all very direct, engaging and transparent.

Why 1%?

The 1%Club has chosen for a directive of 1% because it is such a small part that it hardly influences your own life and spending patterns, but for people in developing countries it can make a world of difference. Every day people die from hunger, illness and dangerous living circumstances. In one word, due to poverty. There are many ways to structurally improve the living circumstances of people with your 1%. So the 1% has been chosen as a ‘gimmick: you won’t miss this 1%.

What happens with my 1%?

You determine that yourself. On the 1%Club website you choose the development projects that according to you contribute most to the fight against poverty. Your 1% directly goes to the project you have chosen. Every project has its own page with information about the project, a weblog, photos and videos so that you can keep exact track of what is happening with your 1%.
