Join the fight to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations using one of the most tax-efficient methods: donating cryptocurrency.

Why Donate Cryptocurrency?

Crypto donations are one of the most tax-efficient ways to support buildOn. Because of the way cryptocurrencies are classified by the IRS, donating crypto is considered a non-taxable event, meaning you don’t owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and you can deduct it from your taxes. Crypto donations to 501c3 charities – like buildOn – receive the same tax treatment as stocks. Click the button below to learn more and read FAQ.

What We Do

Education and service are at the heart of everything we do. Through Service Learning Programs in America’s under-served high schools and by building schools in some of the world’s economically poorest countries, we’re committed to breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations around the world.

Every two days we’re constructing a new school in eight countries including Burkina Faso, Guatemala, Haiti, Mali, Malawi, Nepal, Nicaragua, and Senegal.
