The 1% Society seeks to encourage philanthropy as a way of life, creating a world where charitable giving is as normal as buying a cup of coffee.
We are initially going to be established to spread a message and gather support for our beliefs and what we stand for; notably encouraging this philanthropy.
Depending on how much support we get and how many people pledge, we are considering setting up a grant making charitable arm, where we support specific projects that match our objectives. Current thinking is to support projects or charities that are concerned with the relief of those in need, by reason of youth, age, ill-health, disability, financial hardship or other disadvantage.
We are also considering hosting meetings to discuss our aims and objectives and may have a 'chapter' model, where people who support the cause set up groups in their local areas and host the meetings, but all under The 1% Alliance Brand.
