The ONEHOPE Foundation stands out from others by focusing on creating measurable social impact and giving 100% of funds directly to the cause of an individual’s or business’ choice. The foundation provides a dollar-to-impact ratio for every nonprofit in its portfolio so donors can understand what each dollar donated is creating with objective and transparent metrics. In addition, the foundation distributes 100% of funds to its partners, has zero overhead costs or transaction fees, and provides customized impact reports.
"The ONEHOPE Foundation was created in an effort to start managing our donations in a more efficient and transparent way,” stated Jake Kloberdanz, CEO of ONEHOPE Wine. “In doing this we saw that the giving was more effective from both a nonprofit and business perspective. To date, the foundation has received over 95% of the donations from their founding corporate partner, ONEHOPE Wine. While ONEHOPE Wine’s donations will continue to grow in the coming years, we hope that our contribution will only be a fraction of the greater good that the foundation is able to achieve thanks to the addition of other large corporate and individual partners.”
In parallel with the launch and website unveiling, the ONEHOPE Foundation announces a commitment to donate $100,000 to charity: water in 2013, in collaboration withONEHOPE Wine. The goal is to fund water projects that provide clean drinking water to communities in Ethiopia. Starting today, customers can purchase exclusive reserve label wines that benefit charity: water by visiting ONEHOPE Wine.
“Our open-cause platform is focused on working exclusively with organizations that have a transparent dollar-to-impact ratio," stated Melissa Levick, Executive Director of ONEHOPE Foundation. "We are thrilled to collaborate with charity: water for our launch. charity: water is the perfect example of the type of organization we want to work with and our partnership with this organization is in line with the standards and goals of the foundation."
“charity: water is excited to work with the ONEHOPE team on a fundraising campaign to help bring clean drinking water to communities in the developing world,” said charity: water founder and CEO, Scott Harrison. “ONEHOPE has a strong commitment to making a positive impact on the world, and we’re thankful for all of their support, from fundraising efforts to their generous wine donation for our annual gala, charity: ball.”
