One Brick raises the majority of its operating funds through the grass roots efforts of its local chapters. We also leverage foundations and national organizations to help fund our expansion to new communities. We are proud that we are able to run a large volunteer organization on a very modest budget.
In 2012, we provided over 50,000 hours of service in 11 communities on a budget of $124,000. Our primary funding sources are Our Volunteers (50%), Business Partnerships (25%), Community Events (13%), and Volunteers Employers (11%)
Over half of One Brick's funding comes from the generosity of our volunteers. We are especially pleased that they not only give their time but also help support our work financially. In 2010, over 300 people made direct donations via our website. They think we're awesome and the feeling is mutual.
Each One Brick chapter hosts regular social events such as Happy Hours, Bowling Tournaments and Board Game nights. For a small admission fee, attendees can mingle, have fun, make new friends and support a great cause (without doing any work)!
