Ways to give
Bowl For Kids Sake
A change of shoes can change a life! Our Bowl campaign runs in March/ April annually. Events are hosted in several bowling alleys across Grey and Bruce Counties reaching thousands of community members through advertising reach.
We’d love to hear from you. Please contact us to discuss.
Golf fore Kids’ Sake
Every July we host our Annual Golf Fore Kids’ Sake event.
With over 100 golfers in attendance, this event raises much needed funds that help us provide quality mentoring programs for the children in Grey and Bruce Counties.
There are many ways to support this event, including sponsorship!
Coins 4 Kids
Local kids, schools and businesses collect change for the whole month of October. Kids take cans trick or treating with them, collecting coins as they collect Halloween candy. Schools hand out cans as well and some make it a competition between classrooms. Local businesses also participate by placing a donation can at their register for their customers to donate.
A little change adds up and makes a BIG difference for our mentoring programs!
Host an event
Choose BBBS as your charity of choice for your next 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 Grey Bruce 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. Not interested in hosting an event? Why not make Big Brothers Big Sisters the beneficiary of an existing event! Past and existing examples include: The Dennis Bester Memorial Shootout (fishing derby), Owen Sound Ribfest and Facebook fundraisers (eg., birthday fundraiser).
