Support by individual donors plays a significant role in enabling BBBSNWA to meet its programmatic expenses.  We need your support! BBBSNWA invests approximately $1,000 to recruit, enroll, facilitate and monitor a new match for a year, and $500 for the monitoring of an existing match.

Corporate Sponsorship Opportunities

BBBSNWA partners with a number of businesses in the region including in Big volunteer recruitment drives, comprising our Fund Development Council, and participating in our corporate sponsorship opportunities including supporting our Special Events.  Our annual Special Events include the BIG Business Brunch series, Bowl For Kids’ Sake, and The Big Event.  An additional corporate sponsorship opportunity is Lemonade Day, a program that teaches financial literacy and entrepreneurship to youth.  In addition to financial support, in-kind contributions are also essential to the Center’s success.  Holding a corporate clothing drive is another easy way to support youth mentoring.


Legacy Giving

Through a planned gift, you can support an organization that has been important to you and your family, and make an important difference in your community.  Gifts of all sizes are important, and planned gifts are not only for the wealthy!  Legacy Giving, such as through a will, is an effective way to control the allocation of one’s estate.  It can be a different way of thinking than one’s annual charitable gifts; a Legacy Gift is more likely to be asset-based rather than income-based.  Although there are many types of Legacy Gifts, the simplest are the most popular; leaving a donation through a simple beneficiary designation via investment or will. To Learn MoreTo download sample Legacy Giving language, please click here.
