Digital Badges In Play

We believe donations should benefit the whole service team, not just the group at the top that “allocates resources”.  By converting your donation to philanthropy, we make sure:

  • 70% of each donation goes towards the actual project
    — 30% for student stipends as a reward for learning new STEM++ skills
    — 40% for supplies, equipment, service-providers and materials
  • NEXT Steps only keeps 30% of each donation
  • We give any remaining project funds to the host nonprofit organization . . . because everyone needs to keep their lights on
  • 30% Student Stipends
  • 40% Project Funds
  • 30% NEXT Steps
