The TOMS Giving Team has set up a taskforce to research and identify the greatest needs around the world. We study UN statistics and the Sustainable Development Goals, in addition to work by other international development experts.
Through this research, TOMS has identified a number of high-priority needs, including: energy, food security, housing, health, education, water, financial access, environment, gender equality and well-being/empowerment.
Once we’ve decided on a need to address, we research tangible interventions that can serve as the next One for One®. Ideally, these interventions allow us to leave a big impact by playing a small part in a process.
Finally, we look to the best nonprofits and social enterprises serving that need, seeking a variety of partners with different, but valuable ways of accomplishing one great goal.
