Here at BUILD, from our CEO to every team member, we are grateful that you are part of this community. BUILD extends our deepest gratitude for the shared commitment to fostering the dreams of our bright youth entrepreneurs, teachers, and mentors. This year, we’ve broadened our impact more than ever before, reaching 55,000 students through our digital programming, training 2,500 teachers, and empowering 910 cities with entrepreneurship education. With your help today, we can expand that innovation to even more youth! 

As we eagerly anticipate BUILD’s 25th Anniversary, it becomes even more apparent how your involvement has been a driving force in empowering the next generation through entrepreneurship education. Your support has not only touched lives but has ignited a spark of innovation, creativity, and resilience in the hearts of our youth.

We invite you to join us in celebrating the profound impact that you, our community members, have had on the lives of these aspiring entrepreneurs.

In the spirit of Giving Tuesday, we extend a special invitation for you to consider a unique and invaluable gift – the gift of your time. This year, BUILD encourages you to become a mentor or volunteer, contributing to the cultivation of interdisciplinary entrepreneurial skills in students. Imagine the joy of witnessing young talents blossom and evolve under your guidance, creating a ripple effect that transcends generations.

With BUILD’s 25th Anniversary around the corner, your donation will bring BUILD’s entrepreneurial skills to thousands more youth and new cities across the nation.

Today, you can join the worldwide day of charity and make a lasting impact by not only considering financial donations but by contributing your time and expertise. Giving your knowledge and experience to help shape the youth of the future is no small feat and for that we thank you.
