We are pleased to announce that, with your help, we surpassed our goal for the first ever All-Star Campaign, raising just over $230,000 in support of mentoring programs for children and youth!
We offer our heartfelt thanks to you and everyone who donated or supported the campaign. Every donation, every tweet, and every conversation in support of mentoring has made a difference.
We want to especially thank Gary Nissen and Qualico for their long-standing commitment to BBBS and mentoring, and for their generous matching donation of $100,000. And to our All-Stars and Community Partners who stepped forward to support the campaign, we cannot thank you enough.
We’ve drafted a team of #EveryDayAllStars to help us spread the word about the All-Star Campaign. Professional athletes, Olympians and local all-stars will be sharing their mentoring stories and spreading the word about the power of mentoring.
All-Star Events & Supporters
We’ve teamed up with All-Star local businesses to collect donations, host events and offer special All-Star deals in August.
Mentoring Makes A Difference
Children with mentors are more likely to do well in school, go on to successful careers, live happy, healthy lives, and give back to their communities. In fact, every $1 invested in mentoring by BBBS returns $18 to society.
There are hundreds of children and youth in and around Calgary waiting to be matched with a caring mentor - read some of their stories.
