Board and leadership



Board of Directors

Co-founded by Bono in 2004, ONE is overseen by a Board of Directors that includes individuals with extensive experience in advocacy and activism, policy, politics, and business. The board oversees ONE’s work and helps to ensure we are making progress against our mission.

ONE consists of two separate non-profit organizations, The ONE Campaign (501(c)(3)) and ONE Action (501(c)(4)). The goal of the ONE Campaign is to raise public awareness and educate policy makers about the importance of smart and effective policies and programs. The goal of ONE Action is to urge the public and policy makers to take action, which includes lobbying.
