BUILD.org, an amazing non-profit I sit on the board of that teaches the entrepreneurial mindset to high schoolers in New York City. We serve 500 students at 10 schools.
BUILD does for youth, exactly what I do for adults—that's why I give my time and talent as a member of the New York board for BUILD. But non-profit board seats also require treasure—in this case, a $10K contribution. Rather than saying "No" to the seat, I accepted the challenge.
Since joining the board, I've used my social capital to create financial capital for BUILD. In 2015, we raised $12,013 and in 2016, we raised $11,313. This year I would love your help to increase our contribution to $15,000.
