About buildOn

buildOn has been uniting people worldwide through service and education since 1991.

Our programs are designed to build solidarity through civic engagement, create equitable socio-economic opportunities, and support sustainable social development.

buildOn U.S. mobilizes high school students from marginalized communities across six cities to transform their communities and themselves through service-learning programs. buildOn Global partners with communities in eight of the world’s economically poorest countries to construct schools, bring children back to school, and support adult learners.

As of April 2024, buildOn U.S. students have contributed 2.5M hours of community service and buildOn Global has completed more than 2,600 schools, breaking ground on a new school every two days.

Every bid is a donation

We’re turning charity auctions and fundraising upside down and inside out.

A GOODBIDS positive auction has a great prize, and you can submit bids, but the big difference is that every bid is a non-refundable donation to a charity you care about.

That means that great prizes end up going for really low bids. And charities end up raising more money at the same time.

All you need to do is find an auction you like and place a bid. The money goes directly to the charity and you’ll get a receipt for your tax deductible donation.
