ONE consists of two separate non-profit organisations:

  • The ONE Campaign is a nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organisation that educates the public and raises awareness of the crisis of extreme poverty around the globe and the progress being made against it through life-saving programs. (RED) is a division of The ONE Campaign, and partners with some of the world’s most iconic brands, such as Apple, Bank of America and Salesforce who contribute up to 50% of net profits from the sale of (RED)-branded products and services to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria.
  • ONE Action is a nonpartisan 501(c)(4) organisation that presses lawmakers to support smart, effective policies and programs that are saving lives, educating children and helping those living in the world’s poorest countries lift themselves out of poverty.

Each year, ONE completes a Form 990 (see below) for both the ONE Campaign and ONE Action. This is an annual reporting return that federally tax-exempt organisations must file with the US Internal Revenue Service. It provides information on the filing organisation’s mission, programs and finances. The most recently filed form is for 2020.


ONE and (RED) are funded by a combination of foundations, individual philanthropists, and corporations. We do not solicit funds from the general public or receive government funding. Below is a list of our financial supporters who have contributed at least $5,000 to our work since January 2021. Some of our donors have asked for confidentiality and we respect this request.
