Support Our Agency
Thank you to all the businesses and individuals that donate to our agency. We appreciate your generosity and continued support. Whether you’re looking to donate services or goods, or contribute as an individual or business, we have different donation opportunities available.
Looking to make a BIG difference? Partnering with Big Brothers Big Sisters benefits our most important asset, our children. Corporate sponsorships provide important support, helping Big Brothers Big Sisters match Littles and Bigs in rewarding relationships every day. Different levels are available and can be seen on our website on the Generous Sponsors page .
Support Big Brothers Big Sisters as an event sponsor. We have different fundraising events throughout the year, such as the Illinois Invitational and Bowl For Kids’ Sake and agency events such as the Little Moments Breakfast and our volunteer appreciation dinner. As an event sponsor, your company will receive promotional and advertising opportunities, while helping underwrite the cost of the event. Your company’s logo or name will be featured prominently on our website and at the event letting people know that your company cares about kids.
Be an activity sponsor! Big Brothers Big Sisters hosts free match activities for our Bigs and Littles, such as the Summer Picnic, Fall Fling and Holiday Party. These activities allow our matches to enjoy a fun outing together, while getting to know other Bigs and Littles in the program, as well as staff and board members. As a sponsor, your company will underwrite the cost of the event and receive recognition at the event and in our promotional materials.
Big For A Day
In addition to our matches, we also provide activities for the children on our waiting list as a way to keep them engaged in our program while they wait for a Big Brother or Big Sister. These activities are typically sponsored by a business or organization. If you’re looking for a company service project or team building exercise, one option is to have your company host an activity and spend a few hours interacting with the kids, whether it’s bowling, playing board games or building model airplanes.
