FAQs

¿What is a social transformation project?

A social transformation project is any initiative that seeks to change realities, promote well-being, develop, eradicate poverty, and move towards the elimination of inequality. People in vulnerable situations suffer from weakened ecosystems and face greater risks of social exclusion. The projects we include in our model can be in any sector or respond to different causes, for us, what is most relevant is how that is done. We stop to analyze what situation we are trying to resolve and what methodology is the most pertinent. We seek to improve the lives of the most vulnerable people by building capacity, providing patient capital, and building trust with organizations that share our higher purpose.

¿Why is One Social Investment not a foundation?

We were born in 2018 as a second-tier foundation and our mission was primarily to bring financial resources to first-tier organizations to boost them. To help the one who helps. However, with the change from Fundación Viva to One Inversión Social, we stopped using exclusively the term foundation but instead to act as a bridge that connects economic and strategic capital with all the organizations that achieve social transformations. We are a hybrid between traditional social work and proven impact contribution. We still help the helper, but now we try to be much more powerful through initiatives that achieve the triple impact: economic, social, and environmental.

¿How are the projects supported by One Social Investment chosen?

We receive the projects through our website. We have an application form to find out what the project is about, and all the details related to costs, people impacted, location, expectations, etc. Each initiative is reviewed by the One team and the advisory board to define if it is eligible to participate in our Be One model.

¿What kind of contributions does One Social Investment make?

When we include a project or initiative in our Be One model, we commit to an in-depth analysis of the project or initiative to identify its needs in terms of information, capacities, strategies, and economic capital. After this diagnosis, we join forces to strengthen the project, to achieve a greater impact and, crucially, to make it self-sustainable over time.

¿Who can be partners?

At One we consider allies to be non-profit organizations, foundations, corporations, and entities that, like us, develop projects, promote initiatives and are capable of working as a team for a common cause. Throughout our history, we have had different allies, and we always seek to maintain a good relationship because we believe in the strength of unity.

¿Who can contribute to the One model and how?

Those who share our principles and the vision we have of the world can join this cause where we are all one. The website has different options so that any person or entity can join with financial resources, time, experience, and skills. We are convinced that every contribution counts!
