Other Ways To Give

Clothing Donations
BGCBigs accepts clothing donations through drop of bins around the city and home pickup. Learn more here.

Planned Giving – Children Circle
One of our greatest aspirations in life is to leave a mark – to make a difference. No doubt there are issues that face our community that you feel passionate about; leadership development, health and education issues, housing and childcare. Through your commitment, you can help ensure that Boys & Girls Clubs Big Brothers Big Sisters has a secure future and continues to address the most urgent needs in our community. Through Children’s Circle, you’ll be a community builder and your contribution will be respected and recognized for years to come. This type of planned giving also offers significant advantages, including tax breaks and a potential income increase.

Gifts of Stocks or Securities
A donation of publicly traded securities is one of the easiest and most effective ways to support BGCBigs. Under rules set out in the 2006 federal budget, you may give stocks, bonds, futures and options, as well as shares in mutual funds and you will pay no tax on the associated capital gains. This greatly reduces the out-of-pocket expense of making such a donation.  Click here to see an example.

Employer Matching
Many companies offer matching gift programs. Employees of matching gift companies can donate to our agency and have their donation impact doubled. Please check with your company’s HR or charitable giving departments for clarification of any policies. A list of Canadian corporations that match gifts is available here.

Event Passes
BGCBigs always appreciates donations of tickets or event passes that give our ‘Littles’ the opportunity to experience something new or different. Please arrange for delivery of the tickets/passes via email to events.edmonton@bgcbigs.ca, phone call to 780.424.8181, will call, or drop them off at our Riverdale Office – 10135 89 Street, open Monday to Friday 9am to 9pm. We cannot guarantee that all ticket donations will be used. If you have “last minute” ticket/pass donations, please consider contacting Kids Up Front Edmonton.

Donate a Ride
BGCBigs is grateful to be a recipient agency of the ETS Donate-A-Ride charity initiated by the City of Edmonton. Funds gifted to Donate-A-Ride are used to purchase transit tickets which are distributed to local social service agencies such as BGCBigs. We provide the transit tickets to low-income Edmonton families that are in need of basic transportation to get to employment, educational and social services that are required to improve their quality of life.

Corporate Giving
Philanthropy starts with you. BGCBigs is so grateful for financial support from corporations. Without the aid and support of many different businesses – ranging from multinational corporations to small- and medium-sized businesses – we would be unable to continue our efforts and achieve our nationally recognized results.

Host a Fundraiser
BGCBigs is fortunate to have companies and individuals who go out of their way to coordinate fundraisers on our behalf. We’d love to chat with you about your fundraising idea. Click here to learn more.
