Lead the Movement to Break the Cycle

Breaking the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations takes a movement, and at the foundation of our movement are the Movement Builders. Join this core community of buildOn supporters creating lasting impact through monthly giving.


As a Movement Builder your monthly support will:

Build Schools

Your monthly donation builds schools where they're needed most, providing access to education for children and adults.

Power Service

Your support builds young leaders in U.S. cities by empowering high school students to serve our communities’ most vulnerable.

Grow a Movement

Your monthly gift helps get more students into classrooms in developing countries and helps engage more U.S. teens in service.






Step Up in Solidarity for buildOn U.S. Students

Members who donate $81/month or more to support buildOn U.S. programs provide a full year of service learning to one buildOn student every month and are part of the buildOn Solidarity Circle.  You’ll get all the benefits of being a Movement Builder, plus a dedicated buildOn relationship manager, access to exclusive events with buildOn leadership, and an up close look at your impact in your buildOn city.
