About Us

We have two goals to support one outcome: breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy and low expectations through service and education! We help globally by raising money to sponsor the construction of community schools in buildOn project countries. Locally, we are making a local impact by engaging urban youth from Boston Public Schools in local community service, global education and international school building. Our members help to unlock the potential of under-resourced communities at home and around the globe.

Activities include managing runners in the Boston marathon, hosting a yearly celebration dinner and auction, and participating in service events with Boston students. These activities are coordinated during monthly conference calls, email correspondence, and at times during in person meetings over dinner. We are recruiting anyone interested in promoting this effort. buildOn upholds a stringent policy of financial and operational transparency. This philosophy has earned us a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator nine years running, and even more importantly, the confidence of our supporters.
