OUR “WHOLISTIC” FUNDING APPROACH
We believe if each member of the team contributes to the project, then each member of the team should benefit from the reward.  That’s why our Digital Badge & Skillcoin Rewards System™ makes 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 organization . . . because everyone needs to keep their lights on
