One Brick - Building Community Through Volunteering

Mission Statement

One Brick creates a community of volunteers by offering fun opportunities for individuals to serve local nonprofits. We provide a calendar of volunteer and social events to help people get involved, have an impact, and have fun, without the requirements of long term commitments.

About One Brick

One Brick is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (Federal ID: 77-0593889) that is a community of volunteers that support other local nonprofits by creating a friendly and social atmosphere around volunteering. After each volunteer event our volunteer team invites everyone to gather at a local restaurant or coffee shop where they can get to know one another in a relaxed social setting. Additionally we host regular social events for our volunteers to connect to one another and to welcome new volunteers to our community.

We provide a flexible way for you to volunteer where and when you want.

The Impact of One Brick

One Brick currently operates six chapters nationwide: Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Seattle, Silicon Valley, and Builds our volunteer trip chapter.

The One Brick model has been hugely successful! Since we started, One Brick volunteers have contributed 722,000 hours to the communities we serve.

What makes us special is that One Brick chapters are 100% volunteer-run! We have no chapter based employees... we don't even maintain offices! 

But we DO have a lot of dedicated volunteers who make it all happen. And we're always looking for more people like YOU to join us!
