- About Us -
The Just One Dollar Philosophy
We are a non profit organization dedicated to sending the highest percentage possible of each dollar donated directly to the field causes. We keep our expenses to the absolute minimum by remaining committed to being staffed by volunteers, using free email, using donated equipment, paper, envelopes, ink, postage, a single line phone, as well as using a donated computer and donated website space.
The Just One Dollar Foundation’s directive is to seek out the greatest needs in the world and to simply assist where the world’s needs are the greatest… caring for Humanity, for Wildlife and for the Earth herself by inviting Just One Dollar at a time.
Our dollars joined together go out as a unified gift... from the people of America... to the World.
The vision is founded on the following simple idea:
That One Single Dollar Bill
Resting quietly now
In your pocket
CAN CHANGE THE WORLD.
Divided our single dollars are powerless.
United our single dollars become incredibly powerful.
Together… our Small can become Great.
The Just One Dollar Foundation has with this simple vision in mind dedicated its mission to caring powerfully for the world... by uniting Just One Dollar at a time.
"Each of us has been given the power, the responsibility and the resources
to make the world a better place for all to live:
for Humanity, for Wildlife and for the Earth herself." -J.C. Chambers
"All it will take for evil to overcome the world is for enough good people to do nothing"
"All it will take for good to transform the world is for enough good people to do something... no matter how small..."
"Sometimes it is our turn in life to need the hand up…and sometimes it is our turn to lend it."
"For the simple cost of a drink and a snack…we can change the world."
"This is different... it's not about a few people giving a lot… it is about a lot of people giving
just a little... It could change the world..." -W.M. Smith
"Vision: the art of seeing things invisible" - Jonathon Swift
"…to help save the world for only a dollar… why not??"
It’s a simple and bold new idea.
If every household in America
Just One Single Dollar…
Together we will make a significant difference in our World.
Significant… yet affordable for all.
…This could become one of the most powerful movements in history...
Our Question is…
Will you join the movement??
Beginning January 2003
The Just One Dollar Foundation
Will humbly request the honor
Just One Dollar
From every household
To give to the world.
One single dollar sitting alone could never save an elephant...
But our many single dollars united together can save an elephant.

The Just One Dollar Foundation respectfully requests that contributions be limited to no more than $10 per household please! The Just One Dollar Foundation is committed to its vision of never becoming influenced by big money lobbying.
The Just One Dollar Foundation is run by volunteers in order to insure that the greatest amount of your dollar possible will go directly to your cause. If you wish to become a Just One Dollar Foundation volunteer by volunteering Just One Hour... please contact us at our address above.
We realize that some in America are unable to give even Just One Dollar. For this reason… there are others who may wish to contribute for those who are unable to contribute. This is permitted, however, we would ask you to please, again, limit your giving to the rule of $10 maximum. We know there are others who may wish to contribute to more than one cause or who wish to give one dollar for every member of their family. Again, this of course, is also permitted, however, we would ask you as well, to limit your contribution to the $10 ceiling limit. And please remember... if you are unable to give Just One Dollar…no amount is too small! Even just one quarter will help! Or just one postage stamp! This vision is about a lot of people giving a little...not about a few people giving a lot!
The Just One Dollar Foundation is a proud sponsor of many additional World Partners in Service not listed above. In addition to the causes above..these organizations serve the World from helping at-risk kids, to fighting blindness, to protecting whales and sea otters, to saving the rainforests. If you do not see the cause tied most closely to your heartstrings listed in the areas above... please attach a note with your dollar and we will give your dollar directly to the particular cause of your choice. The Just One Dollar Foundation has carefully researched all of the organizations to which we give, in order to insure that our giving is going only to organizations with the highest caliber of integrity, the most prudent financial management and the most effective and powerful change results possible.
It is foundational to remember that this is not a gift from the Government of America to the World, nor is it a gift from the Corporations of America to the World... It is a gift from the people of America to the World.
The Just One Dollar movement levels the playing field between the rich and the poor. For this one time, on this one topic, in this one arena...we are all equal. We can all unite and do something vital and important together.
Thank you to all of you for joining and becoming part of the simple, nationwide movement that can simply change our world.
All may rest assured that personal information received will never be sold.
Please help the movement... and pass this website on.
