When you give, you’re helping young people get the support and resources they need to live up to their full potential.


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.


Partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters and build your brand through cause-related marketing campaigns, program sponsorship, or growth development grants.


Organize your social groups, have fun, and support a great cause. Do what you enjoy most while knowing you are making a difference for youth who are struggling to achieve more.

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/September 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!


Bigger Together with Southern Georgian Bay

Once a vital youth service, BBBSGT unfortunately closed its doors in 2020, leaving 270 children and youth in need of support. At that time, BBBSGB agreed to support some of the matches within the Collingwood region. Now witnessing a growing need for mentorship services, evidenced by ongoing service requests, BBBSGB is thrilled to announce our formal expansion campaign.

Already servicing a number of youth and families along Southern Simcoe, our Community Mentoring program has grown exponentially over the last few years. As organization not unfamiliar with growth, Big Brothers Big Sisters Grey Bruce has a history of adapting to the changing needs of the community.

We know we are Bigger Together and that expanding our reach means expanding our community of dedicated supporters. Help us re-ignite mentorship in southern Georgian Bay by supporting and following our campaign.


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).
