BENEFITING: One Brick
One Brick (onebrick.org) is a national non-profit that seeks to support the important work of other non-profits in our communities. It has chapters in most major cities (LA, Silicon Valley, NYC, Chicago, DC, etc.).
Our DC Chapter works with all kinds of local and national nonprofits, including The American Heart Association, Quicken Loans Tiger Woods PGA Tournament, Capital Area Food Bank, ALIVE Food Distribution, Kids Enjoy Exercise Now (KEEN), among dozens of others.
One Brick requires funds for day-to-day operations, as it is entirely volunteer-based. We have no physical offices. Everything is run by dedicated volunteers over the Internet. In addition to our volunteer events, we hold monthly happy hours for our volunteers to socialize and get to know one another. A minimal portion of funds are used to support these social events.
