SPONSORSHIP AND SUPPORT

BUILD SOMETHING AMAZING WITH US

BUILD works with individuals and organizations who want to give back and strengthen youth and communities by providing a host of giving and sponsorship opportunities to meet different needs.

We’ll listen to what you want to accomplish with your support and match you or your company with a program, event, or initiative that not only has tremendous impact for young people, but connects you in a meaningful way to a legacy of positive change in Chicago’s most challenged communities.
