Fundraising and Agency Events
Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Central Ohio raises 2/3 of our annual operating budget through fundraising events. We also host match events and agency wide events for our Littles and Bigs to attend throughout the year.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Central Ohio hosts three to four annual fundraisers each year. We receive support from more than 1,000 local businesses and citizens each year through fundraising at our Bowl for Kids’ Sake, Golf Outing, Pulling for Kids’ Sake, and Start Something BIG Gala events. We also have a great partnership with our local Wendy’s called Mondays Matter; seven local Wendy’s locations donate back to our local Big Brothers Big Sisters each month in 2017.
