About One Brick


Mission Statement

One Brick provides support to local non-profit and community organizations by creating a unique, social and flexible volunteer environment for those interested in making a concrete difference in the community. We enable people to get involved, have an impact and have fun, without the requirements of individual long-term commitments.

About One Brick

Headquartered in San Francisco, California, One Brick is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization (Federal ID: 77-0593889) that brings volunteers together to support other local non-profits by adopting an innovative twist to the volunteer experience: we create a friendly and social atmosphere around volunteering, and after each volunteer event -- which typically lasts only 3 to 4 hours -- we invite volunteers to gather at a local restaurant or coffee shop where they can get to know one another in a relaxed social setting.

Our 'commitment-free volunteering' allows you to choose when you volunteer, rather than having to make commitments for a certain number of volunteer hours, or agree to be available every week at a specific time.

The Impact of One Brick

One Brick currently operates in eight chapters nationwide: San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Washington DC, Seattle, Silicon Valley, Boston, and National

The One Brick model has been hugely successful! Since we started, One Brick volunteers have contributed 628,000 hours to the communities we serve.

What makes us even more unique is that One Brick chapters are 100% volunteer-run! We have no employees... we don't even maintain offices! In fact, on a National level, One Brick has only one single employee.

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 help!
