Support our work Investing in the BUILD Charity Investing in the BUILD Charity The BUILD Charity is dependent on a variety of sources of income - and every piece of it is regarded as an investment. Here we share with those interested in supporting us, just some of the ways people have helped us in the past, and can do so in the future, and give an indication of where that support has come from. Why do we talk about an "investment" ? When you think about an investment you think about getting shares or a value to your return. As a registered charity our "shares" are shared lives and experiences. Whether that be someone taking part in an activity away from their family carers for the first time, booking their own taxi, choosing their own food in a restaurant, or having a holiday with their friends for the very first time - these are all examples of the "shares" you will be buying with your investment. The return on your investment is the increased independence one of our beneficiaries experiences, or the smiles on people's faces when they have climbed a mountain, canoed or sailed across a lake, or bought their first drink at the bar. These are all real examples of the difference your investment can make. Where does investment come from? Investment in the BUILD Charity comes from a variety of sources. We believe it makes sense not to have all our eggs in the same basket when it comes to income, which is why we have ridden the peaks and troughs of local authority cuts, recessions and more recently the Coronavirus pandemic, battered, and bloodied but not blown out of the water. Here is where our investments came from in the year ending 31st March 2020.
