HOST AN EVENT

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.

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 Guelph has limited financial 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.

Your event is what you make it, so have fun with it! Here are some ideas to consider:

BBQ                                          Craft Sale/Show
Garage Sale                                Poker Tournament
Run/Walk/Ride                            Wine & Paint Night

Loyalty Funding

Fundraising with LoyaltyFunding is simple, automatic and doesn’t cost you anything more than you would already spend each month on your groceries, gas and coffee purchases. You simply set up a monthly subscription to receive gift cards to the retailers you already normally shop with. The payment will be automatically taken out each month and you will receive your cards in the mail. You pay exactly the same amount as the value of the cards you receive.
