Is The One Project a registered charity?Last Updated: February 22, 2019
The One Project is a social enterprise registered under The One Project Education Inc. and while we often partner with mental health charities and organizations, we plan to create a charitable arm in the future to help expand our impact once we've achieved better sustainability.
Currently, our main goal is to pay off our current loans and achieve sustainability.
The organization is run without any motive for profit independently by Bryce Evans, who does not take a salary or wage, on top of his primary business. It started as a creative project and after building into a larger community and grassroots movement, creating and managing a charity looked to be too complex at the time and we saw many struggling to achieve sustainability off of grants and donations at a time when mental health was losing more funding.
Here is one definition of social enterprise, which fits our model ❤️
- A social enterprise is a revenue-generating business with primarily social objectives whose surpluses are reinvested for that purpose in the business or in the community, rather than being driven by the need to deliver profit to shareholders and owners.
