Making a Donation. EWB-CC relies on the generous support of its friends and family. Although the national organization, EWB-USA, provides access to numerous projects around the world, funding for specific projects remains up to the individual chapter. Each project is designed to be as cost effective as possible, and extensive research is done to ensure the materials used are sustainable and environmentally friendly. Host communities can also offer labor and invaluable knowledge of local resources. However, the material cost of the project and airfare involved can be expensive. If you are a business or individual and wish to donate please visit our donate page. We thank you in advance for your generous contribution.
