One Day’s Wages is a grassroots movement of people, stories, and actions to alleviate extreme global poverty.
We surpassed our $200,000 goal!
We are still in awe at your generosity! Your passion for global justice and helping this movement grow and thrive is inspiring. Our 9th Annual Gala was a time to celebrate milestones, share stories of impact, and invite you to come alongside us as we empower more people around the world through tangible, sustainable partnerships. You helped us raise $216,381 making this movement possible. Thank you!
Why give to the Gala?
We are a 100% model organization. Throughout the year, we give 100% of donations directly to projects empowering people in their contexts to fight global poverty. We raise our operating costs separately to make this possible. Our Gala is our one event every year where we invite supporters of this grassroots movement to give to our operations and celebrate the impact of this work. Your generosity fuels our passionate team of dreamers working towards a more just and beautiful world.
If you weren’t able to join us in person this year, but want to be part of this larger story you can still give. Your generosity from near and far is what this movement is all about. Everyday people making a difference through simple acts of generosity.
All donations to the Gala will be matched by our generous Sponsors, doubling the impact of your gift.
