Frequently Asked Questions
How do you pay the bills?
The1 Million charges all members a flat $3 per year membership fee. This allows us to host, manage, and run our website as well as vet all nonprofit organizations. We also follow-up and hold the winning nonprofits responsible and accountable with their winnings.
Is my donation tax deductible?
No, it is not. We also don't let anyone donate more than any of our members can. The money donated is a group donation coming from The 1 Million as an organization.
How do I know the nonprofits are legitimate?
The 1 Million takes the necessary time to make sure the organization is legitimate and stands behind the mission that their brand represents. We do all of this before the organizations are even allowed onto our voting platform.
How do I know my money actually goes to the nonprofits?
The 1 Million strives to be transparent with their members and nonprofit partners. Our process includes a follow-up with our monthly winners showcasing how they are putting your money to good use. Check our social media pages for current updates.
How do I see what is being done with my money?
Each month, The 1 Million will announce a winner and the amount that is being donated. Check our social media pages for updates and, most importantly, remember to place your vote each month.
How does $1 make any difference at all?
As much as we appreciate your dollar (and so will the nonprofits) what we need is your voice. The 1 Million is a way to show what causes you care about and where you want to see big changes happen. So, let’s hear it!
Do I get to choose which nonprofits are up for the vote?
We encourage you to submit suggestions for nonprofits and our team will put the nomination through our vetting process. Though you do not get to choose which three nonprofit organizations are up for the vote each month, you have a vote to help choose a winner.
Can I give more than one dollar?
I’m sure you’ve been upsold by enough salesman in your life, so we are going to spare you the trouble. Whether you’re Nicolas Cage or the ‘average Joe’ (we don’t think you’re average, Joe), you can only vote once a month and donate a dollar.
