What is One Mission?

We are a fundraising company for World Changers. One Mission is the first company to combine all the best fundraising ideas into one platform. We offer product fundraising (with products people LOVE) and free crowdfunding (online only) along with custom products, such as custom apparel. And, we have a team of big-hearted people committed to helping you reach your fundraising goals.

Is One Mission a non-profit organization?

No, One Mission is a for-profit company. But, we like to say that we are “not just for profit”.

Do I have to be a non-profit in order to use One Mission to raise money?

Definitely not. We’ve made One Mission usable by any individual or group that is out there trying to change the world for the better.

Supporter Questions

In the menu bar, click SHOP With PURPOSE.

  • Fill your cart with your favorite items. (The more you buy, the more you donate!)
  • Choose the One Mission Fund you’d like to support with 40% of your purchase funds. Aren’t tied to a specific Fund? By default, your purchase will support our One Mission Love Fund
  • Check out
  • Feeling the love? Leave a little extra donation, 100% of this amount goes to cause you choose.
  • We’ll lovingly package, ship your goods, and make sure your donation gets to the Fund you selected. Doesn’t that sound lovely?

That depends on the type of group you are supporting. Donations supporting individuals or groups that are not tax exempt organizations are definitely not tax deductible. On the other hand, cash donations and the 40% donated amount from product purchases that benefit tax exempt organizations such as non-profits, schools, churches, etc, are generally tax deductible. If your purchases and donations benefited a tax exempt organization then a note stating “The Donated Total qualifies as a year-end charitable contribution” will be added to the purchase receipt. This will act as your donation receipt, so keep it for your records.

With all that stated, every situation is different and we cannot give you definitive tax advice and encourage you to talk with a tax professional about all tax-related matters.

Yes. We use appropriate security safeguards to protect your personal information against loss, theft, and unauthorized access. Any personal information you provide through One Mission’s website is exchanged on a secure server. We use an advanced security system, the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, to encrypt, or encode, information you send to us in the order process. The encryption process protects information, such as your credit card number, and billing and shipping information by scrambling it before it is sent from your computer. Only once we receive your information is it decoded, and we make all reasonable efforts to ensure its security on our own systems. Please take a look at our Privacy Policy and Terms and Conditions for more information.

No problem. If this happens, just send us an email ( within 24 hours of the transaction, and let us know and we’ll be happy to adjust the transaction to benefit your desired Fund.

Yes. In fact, you have to give your 40% product purchase donation to someone. Not associated with a specific fund? Well then, you have two options. You could ‘Find a Fund’ and browse all current funds and pick one to support – or by default – if you don’t specify a particular Fund, your donation will be allocated to the One Mission Love Fund, which helps One Mission continue to offer our services and grow.

The One Mission Love Fund is used to support the operational costs of the One Mission platform as well as causes and projects near and dear to our heart. As many of you know, we have a great big love for Haiti and are committed to helping with projects there that will help sustain families and build communities. Learn more >>

One Mission is all about making people happy and helping good causes achieve their fundraising goals. With every product purchase 40% is donated to the cause you selected. That’s awesome, right? Well, it does make exchanges, returns and refunds a little challenging. The first thing to keep in mind is that because of the donated portion of every transaction, we do not allow refunds. Instead, we have provided an exchange policy to accommodate, as much as possible, supporters in various situation. Learn More >>

We work really hard to get orders shipped as quickly as possible.  Learn more about our standard shipping times >>

Next, WE APPROVE YOUR FUND and the partnership begins. In a hurry? We are quick to respond. We understand that time matters.

So…YOUR JOB is to:
Promote your Fund Page (through your custom link) to your circle of friends, family, and supporters via Facebook, Twitter, and email. Shout it to the rooftops! Rally a few people close to you to help spread the word.

Never fear, WE HANDLE ALL THE LOGISTICS. As orders come in, we fulfill and ship directly to your supporters.

Well then, yes. A One Mission Fund might be perfect for you!

Well… if you’re not active on social media, it will be pretty tricky to make your friends and family aware of your online Fund.

It happens automatically!  One Mission sends physical checks to the payees of Funds by the 15th of every month for the prior months’ net donations.

An online One Mission Fund is absolutely free to start, maintain, and close. No setup fees, monthly fees, or withdrawal fees. Also, we don’t charge a platform fee for cash donations. We don’t take one cent of your donations, which means more money for your cause.

The only fee associated with cash donations and product purchases is the pesky credit card fee (2.9% plus $0.30 per transaction) which applies to the full transaction amount. (It’s simply the nature of the credit card beast!)

If you’re interested in a custom t-shirt, then a setup fee does apply.

Right now we only work with Funds based in the United States. The Fund Leader can certainly do its work in another country, but we do require that the organizer or organization of the Fund be a resident of the United States. Also, we restrict sales of our products as well as cash donations to U.S.-based supporters only. We hope to expand outside the U.S. in the future.

*Please note: We do not accept political causes or causes that would benefit a for-profit business.

We accept almost any ‘good cause’. However, we do reserve the right to approve or deny any prospective Fund at our sole discretion. We welcome individuals facing a medical crisis, individuals and groups doing a mission trip, sports teams & fine arts groups, churches, youth groups, schools, adoptive parents, communities, as well as small and large non-profit organizations. As long as you are doing something good, we are likely to approve your fundraiser.

*Please note: We do not accept political causes or causes that would benefit a for-profit business.

Yes, it’s totally free to start a Fund. Learn more about our fees >>

That depends on what you want to do. We allow Funds to choose their start and end dates. For most Funds, we strongly recommend no more than 30, 60 or 90 days, in order to provide a sense of urgency and action among your supporters.  The maximum Fund duration available is 365 days which is sometimes a great option for non-profit organizations or fundraising groups that need a constant source of funding and promote their Fund page at different points throughout the year.  Funds can be extended by request of the Fund Leader.

Yes! Custom t-shirts are our jam. Almost all of our successful Funds utilize our custom products option. They really can boost funds raised for your cause. One Mission has an uber talented design team to help you create a thoughtful design that your supporters will really love. There is a one-time, upfront setup fee, but then once the items are created and featured on your Fund Page, you have no inventory to buy, ship, or manage. We take care of all of that for you.  Learn more >>

Even if you’re just a little bit social media savvy, we’d say ‘Yes.’ Obviously, the more thought and effort you put into the Fund promotion, the better. We recommend getting a team of people on board to commit to liking, sharing, and commenting on your posts. We also provide great social sharing tools and are super happy to offer advice and ideas, but it’s really up to you. The more you do, the more you raise.

It’s easy. Just remember your username and password that your used to create your Fund. Login from the top right corner of our One Mission home page, and all the tools are literally at your fingertips.

Sure you can, and you should. You can do it two ways. First, we allow you to customize the donor receipt with a “thank you” message, especially from you. Also, you can get the names and addresses of purchasers from the Supporters tab in your Dashboard.

Of course! Helping others is why One Mission is here! However, we do ask that you get permission from the individual or group you wish to raise money for, and be very specific on your Fund Page indicating who you are raising money for and why. Also, be specific also about how and when you will deliver the proceeds to the final beneficiary.

Promote like mad! And don’t worry, we’ve got some tips and tricks up our sleeves to help you a bunch! The key is to get creative and have FUN with it! (And… we’ve found that featuring custom products on your Fund Page really helps!)

Definitely not. We’ve made One Mission usable by any individual or group that is out there trying to change the world for the better.

For tax exempt organizations such as schools, non-profits, churches, etc. donations received through fundraising are not considered taxable income. For individuals and groups doing fundraising, donations are typically considered personal gifts and are not taxable income.

But, every situation is different and we cannot provide specific tax advice, so please consult a qualified tax professional for guidance.

The Fund gets 40% of all products sold through the One Mission website minus the credit card fee (2.9% plus $.30 per transaction) which applies to the full transaction amount. Yep, that’s right, 40%. So, when a supporter purchases a $25 tee shirt, the Fund gets $10 of that purchase minus the credit card fee.

Nope. Fund supporters aren’t charged anything beyond what they donate or purchase..

Only the best fundraising products on the planet! (Seriously) We provide beautiful, high-quality, positive-message based products plus gifts that you are going to LOVE. We carry the softest, most comfortable t-shirts and other styles, hand-poured soy candles, coffee mugs, art prints, note cards, jewelry & more! The best part? 40% of each and every purchase is donated. Whether you’re leading the fundraising efforts for your own cause or shopping to support a cause you love, what you are doing matters. Because either way, you are a World Changer.
