Ways to give
Many young people struggle with societal barriers and face adversities such as mental health issues, family violence, identity issues or poor living conditions. Your donation will lead to healthy, thriving youth who can achieve more.
Bowl For Kids Sake
National Sponsorship of our premiere nation-wide fundraising event becomes available periodically. Sponsorship of our national event is a multi-year agreement.
Our Bowl campaign runs from February to March and directly reaches hundreds of thousands of participants each year, as well as potentially millions of Canadians through advertising reach.
Available sponsorships include an exclusive National Partner, and several smaller National Supporter titles.
Contact us to discuss.
Run Your Own Event
These events are organized by you or your community group (e.g. school groups, unions, or corporations) to help raise funds necessary for Big Brothers Big Sisters to operate and ensure that every child gains the confidence to achieve more through a mentoring relationship.
An event can be any activity by a non-affiliated group or individual. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada has no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement, however, we will support you and your event as much as possible to help it be a success. Event examples include: A “something”-a-thon, Raffles, Auctions, Parties, Video Game Fundraising Models – “something-for-kids-sake”.
Tribute & Memorial Gifts
At the next special occasion, honour a friend, mentor, or family member with a gift in their honour. If a loved one has recently passed, you can also make a gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters in their memory.
Loved ones or their family will receive a personalized note of the donation made in their honour and a tax receipt will be sent to you. Make a gift in honour of someone special online or contact us

Are you looking for a fun group or corporate volunteering activity that engages your team while making an impact? Help us build Back to School Kits or Holiday Gift Kits for youth in our community with our kit building partner Kits for a Cause. It’s a great way for groups to give back, bond as a team and see the impact that they are making locally. It doesn’t matter how many people you have, whether it’s 5 or 500, you can host a kit build – it’s that easy! Every item that goes into a kit is carefully selected for the young person that receives it. As a team, you can help us make a young person’s day brighter and the world a better place!
