Baird was recognized as BUILD Chicago’s 2023 Corporate Community BUILDer honoree. BUILD believes in building a better future for their clients and the communities around them. With the Paul Purcell “Kids Win” Annual Baird Education Grant, Baird is committed to expanding access to opportunities by opening doors and helping young individuals walk through. BUILD was one of nine 2022 “Kids Win” recipients, and the grant they received will expand their “BUILDing Futures” program. BUILD and Baird agree that when kids win, we all win.
