Ways To Give

Big Smiles Collection Crew


We regret to inform you that Value Village has decided to terminate Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg’s Big Smiles partnership this summer. We are currently ramping the program down.

After August 26th, 2023, we will no longer have bins to drop off donations, or scheduled home pick-ups.

Donations will still be accepted directly at our designated store at Value Village’s Unicity location at 3629 Portage Avenue until March 31st, 2024. Our agency still receives a small amount of revenue from drop-off donations at this location.

We are grateful to all our supporters over the last many years, and we hope you are able to continue supporting our youth mentoring program via our Ways to Give webpage!


Golf for Kids Sake is a premiere nation-wide fundraising event, and Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg’s largest annual fundraiser with presenting sponsors, the Kinsmen Club of Winnipeg.

This year, our Golf for Kids Sake event will be held during August 2023!

This year is extra special as Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Winnipeg are celebrating our 50th year as an organization, and 50 great years of providing life changing mentorship support to children and youth in our community.

There are many ways to get involved! From registering a golf team, to offering support as a hole sponsor, corporate donor, or event day volunteer- all help to ensure youth receive the support of mentors and program activities over the year.

Please click on the ‘Find Out More’ button to sign your team up and for more information on how YOU can get involved!


Did you know that you can donate the proceeds of the sale of your used car to us? Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg is proud to be partnered with Associated Auto Auction Ltd. and Adesa Winnipeg for BIG TOW. Children in Winnipeg will benefit from your generous donation! Your car donation will help Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg maintain and grow its mentoring services. Also, it is an easy, hassle free way of disposing of your vehicle. We will take care of coordinating the pickup of your vehicle and its disposal, whether it is recycled or auctioned.


These events are organized by you or your community group (e.g. school groups, unions, or corporations) to help raise funds necessary for Big Brothers Big Sisters to operate and ensure that every child gains the confidence to achieve more through a mentoring relationship.

An event can be any activity by a non-affiliated group or individual. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg has no fiduciary responsibility and little or no staff involvement, however, we will support you and your event as much as possible to help it be a success. Event examples include: A “something”-a-thon, Raffles, Auctions, Parties, Video Game Fundraising Models – “something-for-kids-sake”.


At the next special occasion, honour a friend, mentor, or family member with a gift in their honour. If a loved one has recently passed, you can also make a gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters in their memory.

Loved ones or their family will receive a personalized note of the donation made in their honour and a tax receipt will be sent to you. Make a gift in honour of someone special online or contact us
