Clean & Paint the Cornerstone Community Center

Brought to you by Grand Street Settlement

Help clean and paint the Cornerstone Community Center in the Baruch Houses, which is home to Grand St. Settlement's afterschool and drop-in programming and serves as a welcoming community hub. Volunteers will prep the space for painting by moving furniture, removing wall hangings, cleaning and covering the floors, and then painting. Moderate work will be required, sometimes on a ladder, so be prepared!

A platform for activism

Give One is about getting involved in your community one day, and one cause at a time.

The fine print

How we operate

Give One is a non-profit federal tax-exempt organization under section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code, EIN 81-4924613, so all of your donations are tax deductible.

While volunteering doesn’t cost any money, some activations might require tools and supplies, most of which Give One aims to provide. Interested in donating supplies? Email us at hello@give-one.org↳.

We’re run by a team of volunteers, and all of our administrative costs are supported by private philanthropy which enables us to ensure every dollar raised goes directly to supporting the causes you care about most. Interested in supporting the platform? You can reach us at hello@give-one.org↳. We’d love to continue the conversation!

Liability & responsibility

Our goal is to connect willing and able volunteers directly with credible community organizations.

Give One is not liable for any personal damages, injury, or lost property during participant’s activation. Before an activation, each volunteer is required to fill out a waiver.

While we help coordinate the activations, you’ll be dealing directly with the organizations who may have their own requirements and paperwork for you to fill out.

If you have any specific questions, email us at hello@give-one.org↳.

We're in beta

We are currently Beta testing our volunteer activations with select partners in New York City.

We will be expanding our programming to additional communities and community organizers in the months to come. If you have an organization that would like to participate, or would like to suggest an organization, please email us at partners@give-one.org↳.

We’d love to help!
