On November 12th, nonprofit organization buildOn exceeded records and expectations by hosting more than 1,000 guests at its annual fundraising Gala at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, which raised $4.1M to support the organization’s work.
BuildOn’s goal is to break the cycle of poverty, illiteracy, and low expectations through service and education. Across the U.S., buildOn empowers urban youth to transform their neighborhoods through intensive community service and to change the world by building schools in some of the economically poorest countries in the world. Digilant’s CEO Don Epperson, first became involved in buildOn when the organization was founded 24 years ago.
Don was instrumental in starting the Boston branch of the organization which now engages with more than 150 students each month.
Digilant is proud to support the outstanding work that buildOn is doing around the world and in our local community through their Digilant Cares program and through the leadership of Don Epperson.
