Help BUILD better futures in Chicago – Donate to BUILD with Sharp

This Giving Tuesday we are asking our friends to help build better futures for Chicago youth by donating to BUILD.

Potential doesn’t discriminate, neither should opportunity.

Since 1969, BUILD has helped Chicago’s most vulnerable youth escape gangs and violence to become positive leaders in their communities. The city’s young people face enormous obstacles and trauma, so BUILD surrounds them with the counseling, mentoring, training, and opportunities they need to build a future and succeed.

Sharp supports BUILD because the nonprofit empowers youth to see beyond their blocks into the greater world of opportunity surrounding them.

BUILD engages youth at every stage, with specialized teams dedicated to street violence interventions, gang detachments, creative after-school programming, academic school and college support, mental health care, community violence crisis response, and enrichment activities ranging from art and music to sports, podcasting, engineering, and gardening.

Join us in BUILDing a better future. Donate here.
