Social Media Fundraisers

You can fundraise for BUILD on social media and be sure that 100% of funds raised support our mission. Facebook Fundraisers allow to you to raise completely secure donations with no fees, for an organization of your choice. Whether for a birthday or graduation, this is the easiest way for your friends and family to support you on a special occasion.

Amazon SMILE

Your own online shopping can give back with AmazonSmile: shop as usual, but if you shop on smile.amazon.com, the AmazonSmile Foundation will donate 0.5% of the price of eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. Here are three steps to connect your shopping with BUILD:

  1. Visit Amazon Smile, you’ll be prompted to select the charitable organization by typing BUILD Incorporated in the indicated box.
  2. Browse and shop as usual – including Prime Membership and other benefits
  3. Remember, you must always log on for eligible purchases to apply!

Strides for Peace

Every year BUILD participates in Strides for Peace, a community-based “Fun Run” that brings together dozens of partners and community organizations dedicated to fighting gun violence. With races and walks for every fitness level, it’s easy to set up your own fundraising page and ask for support from friends and family to benefit BUILD. Record a ‘Why I Run” video and join the Strides community! Or, sponsor some of the BUILD youth running in the event. This year’s race is virtual, on September 25, 2021.
