Giving Back

Giving back was imprinted on Susan and her siblings from an early age, which led to the launch of her own non-profit organization, and continues to fuel her desire for growth. She strives to earn more so she can give more to the causes that are near and dear to her heart, leading to generational change within the communities served.


buildOn is not a charity. It's a movement. buildOn empowers U.S. urban youth to transform their neighborhoods and the world through intensive community service. Globally, buildOn constructs a new school every three days in some of the economically poorest countries around the world.
