Other Ways to Give


Donating online is just the start.

There are lots of ways to donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada and help us make a positive impact on kids in this community. 

Planned Giving

Making us a part of your trust, bequest or endowment can start many years of giving. And there are lots of options for giving in the form of stocks, bonds and mutual funds - we can work together to find an option that works for you. Just give us a call at 775-352-3202 or contact Fund Development Director Wendy Firestone at wfirestone@bbbsnn.org.

 

Host a Clothing Drive

Clothing Drives are an EASY way to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada. Neighborhood associations, businesses, clubs, churches, or other organizations can make a BIG difference for children by sponsoring a clothing drive! We provide the donation barrels; your members provide the clothing. Host your clothing drive and tell your employees, members, or customers to place their gently used items in the donation barrel. Our staff will empty the barrel regularly. Contact us for more information at 775.826.2122 or sshaffer@bbbsnn.org.


Host a Workplace Fundraiser

One of the most fun ways to support us is to host or organize your own fundraiser with colleagues and friends at work. This is easy - BBBSNN will help you out with whatever you need.  It's also a great way to bond with teammates while doing something positive. You know what would work best for your group, but below are a few ideas to get you started.

A Jeans/Casual Dress Day at work

Office Olympics - charge people to participate in hula hoop and jump roping contests

Change drive - create a competition between departments

Do you have your own fundraiser idea? Let us know at sdillon@bbbsnn.org or 775-473-4600! We'd love to help out. 

Donate a Used Vehicle

Do you have an old clunker that you're not too sure what to do with? We can help!  Your used car, boat, motorcycle or other vehicle will support mentoring relationships in northern Nevada when you deliver it to Lightning Auto Auctions and let them know it's a donation for Big Brothers Big Sisters. Give us a call with your VIN number ahead of time to make the process easier. You must have a clear title in your name. Give us a call at 775-352-3202 to find out more!

 

Become a Corporate or Foundation Partner

We love our corporate partners! If you own or work for a business that wants to get involved, we can find the right role for you. We have sponsorships available for both Over the Edge and Big Chefs Big Gala and we are always on the lookout for grant opportunities. Contact us at wfirestone@bbbsnn.org or 775-352-3202.
