Futurebuilders are companies or individuals who share our vision and want to be part of a new and exciting charitable enterprise that is building, delivering and sustaining a network of 21st Century youth zones across the North West.
Our supporters wish to invest in a charity where the social returns are tangible and visible. If you have a passion for improving the lives of young people and want to make a significant impact on society, then together we can make a real difference.
Futurebuilders provides the means for socially responsible companies and philanthropic individuals, drawn from a wide variety of sectors but all of whom are dynamic, proactive and forward-thinking to make a difference. There are three levels of membership:
Our Investors are committed to giving substantial financial support to OnSide and are allocating their money to make the greatest possible difference to the lives of young people in the region. The intention of each investment is different, you can support the ongoing development of one of our existing Youth Zones or provide the seed investment for a new Youth Zone. Becoming an Investor in the future of OnSide helps us to develop new Youth Zones and means we can confidently work towards providing every town and city in the North West with a Youth Zone.
“I am delighted to be an investor in the Wigan Youth Zone. Today’s youth are our future and it is incumbent upon us to help them develop into confident, able and responsible citizens”. Bill Ainscough, Investor and Trustee of OnSide
Our Leaders are spearheading the work of OnSide and are making it possible for us to continue building, delivering and supporting a network of Youth Zones across the North West. Making an annual gift at this level helps sustain our work and means we can ensure that every Youth Zone we develop has everything it needs to be successful from day one. Your regular support will mean we can provide each Youth Zone with a fully trained team of staff and volunteers, an active group of Young Leaders and all the business, fundraising and operational support it needs.
“As a long established, family-owned, North West company, Conlon is delighted to be able to support a ground-breaking, charitable enterprise that will help young people lead healthier and more positive lives; raise their aspirations; and develop into happy, responsible citizens of the future. These objectives fit with our commitment to train, develop and support our employees, whilst also offering an opportunity for them to actively participate in our support of the community.” Theresa Noblett, Chairman, Conlon Construction Ltd.
Our Champions support OnSide’s mission to provide young people with ‘somewhere to go, something to do and someone to talk to.’ In addition to providing us with regular support they are advocates for our cause and champion the OnSide approach to transforming the lives of young people.
