Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bucks County works with corporations in many different ways.
Some corporations become sponsors, encourage employees to join our planning committees or attend our Special Events.
Others partner with us by providing free or discounted activities or goods for our matches to use through our Give-A-Little program. We don’t want our Bigs to spend a lot of money on their Littles – we want them to spend quality time together. Bigs receive a card showing that they are in the program, and this makes it easier for businesses to identify them. Some of our current partners include Applebees, Go Banana’s Frozen Yogurt, Monster Mini Golf, Paint N Pottery and the YMCA. To learn how your business can join the Give-A-Little program, please contact Teri Russell-Shaw at 215.343.8260 x 120.
Companies can support the High School BIGS program by participating in the Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) program, established by the Department of Community and Economic Development. Tax credits are awarded to businesses that make contributions to groups that have been approved as Educational Improvement Organizations. BBBSBC qualifies as a recipient of EITC funds. To learn more about the program, go to http://dced.pa.gov/programs/educational-improvement-tax-credit-program-eitc/ and consult with your accountant.
By hosting a clothing bin or holding a clothing drive for Clothes for Kids Sake at your business, you are not only raising much needed funds for BBBSBC, you are also showing that you are partnering with one of the top nonprofits in Bucks County.
