Individual Donations— make a difference in a child’s life. Donations can be made anytime during the year by phone, mail or in person at our office. You can also consider becoming a monthly donor—it’s so easy!

Corporate Donations— invest in the community. We welcome committed financial support from business at any level, and we will customize a partnership to blend your organization’s goals and priorities with our own. It’s up to you how to support us: your organization can back specific programs and projects, or they can sponsor different activities and events.

Publicly Traded Securities— are now easier than ever to donate. The last Federal budget saw changes that will positively impact our donors—here’s how: When you donate publicly traded securities to a registered non-profit group like Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Fraser Valley, you will no longer have to pay tax on the capital gain. Publicly traded securities include:

  • Public company shares
  • Mutual funds
  • Bonds
  • Employee stock options

Planned Giving — leaves a lasting legacy. Through a bequest in your will, you can significantly contribute to the community with a gift of assets (property, stocks or bonds), gift annuities, trusts or life insurance policies. What’s more, planned gifts may qualify for significant tax deductions. Contact us for more information.

Third-Party Fundraising — gives you a chance to have fun while raising funds! Get your clubs, community groups, co-workers and friends together and host an event uniquely you. Jumpstart an annual run and walk, cook up a delicious dinner party or roll your way into a bowling night with friends. Give us a call, and let us help you start organizing today.

Gifts-In-Kind— allow us to better serve the community. Whether you have new or gently used office equipment or supplies, we welcome tangible object donations.

Special Event Ticket Donations — help us send deserving children and their mentors on memorable outings. Tickets or passes enable our Bigs and Littles to attend movies, concerts, museums and sporting events etc, around the city. Let your unused tickets be the key to imagination!

Company Matching Grants— give you the chance to get your organization more actively involved in corporate philanthropy. Many companies have a Matching Gift Program often doubling or tripling the individual tax-deductible gifts made by their employees. Contact your Human Resources department today.

Renew Crew—  Donate gently used items and clothing to the Renew Crew... This is an easy way to make a difference for kids in our community. Donate the things you don’t need anymore for Big Brothers Big Sisters! The Renew Crew gladly accepts usable items on our behalf such as clothing of any kind, shoes, boots, linens & bedding, luggage, toys & games, books, jewelry, kitchenware, housewares, glassware, sporting goods, tools and small appliances.

To schedule a free, convenient pick-up at your home call 1.866.521.4393 or email your request to renewcrew.com.  

PLEASE NOTE:  WE NO LONGER ACCEPT DONATIONS AT OUR LOCAL OFFICES. 

Everything you donate is sold to Value Village where they Rethink/Reuse, and all of the proceeds we receive from your donations goes directly to providing mentoring programs for children.
