Changing Lives, ONE Act of Kindness at a Time:
Your support creates an impact. Here's a recent example of our work in action:
A Single Mother's Determination: Our local non-profit partner works with a single mom to create a plan to help her achieve her goal of securing financial stability and providing her children with a stable permanent home.
The Unexpected Challenge: There is a curveball. Mom's car, vital for work and her children's early childhood education, unexpectedly broke down threatening to undo her progress with the non-profit, as repairing the car was beyond their mission and funding.
The One By One Project- A Missing Puzzle Piece: The One By One Project received a request for help to pay the bill. We swiftly reviewed and approved the request. Within 24 hours, we paid the mechanic's bill for the car repair.
A Ripple Effect of Goodness: With her car fixed, mom regained independence, returned to work, and ensured her children's consistent attendance at school. And, this also boosted job satisfaction among our partner's staff.
The Heart of Our Mission- Trust-Based Giving: This is the essence of The One By One Project – we trust our partners to identify urgent needs on our behalf. We approve and pay the bill within 24-48 hours, igniting a chain reaction of positive change.
Our Impact in Numbers:
Year One (2021): We signed trust-based contracts with 30 local Greater Boston partners and filled 170 requests for funds.
Year Two (2022): We expanded to 44 organizations, responding to 262 fund requests and distributing over $160,000.
Our Journey Continues (2023): Our growth continues, and demand is high. The One By One Project currently collaborates with 45 contracted partners and has distributed over $380,000 across 645 total requests.
Our top fundraising goal is to raise funds to open our partnership waitlist, enabling us to extend our support to more individuals and families.
