We’re asking our members and friends to help us celebrate our network turning five by sharing what makes them proud to #BeOnePercent.

Members and those on our mailing list with receive a pack in the post with a party hat, a sign and a copy of our five year report.


Here’s Matt and Steve, Be One Percent’s founders to kick things off.



We’re very proud of how far we’ve come. We started with 8 people in 2011 and now have nearly 200 members giving 1% every month. We’ve funded over 60 projects and raised over £260K! Our mission hasn’t changed and neither has our vision. We can eradicate poverty from the ground up if we all give proportionally and give together.
