What is an In-Kind Donation?
Instead of making a cash gift to help us pay for goods or services that keep us running, some donors gift us with an asset (in the form of goods and services).
When you make an In-Kind gift to BBBSO, we use your generous contribution for our children, families, and matches. We also use In-Kind donations for our programs and as auction items at our fundraising events.
At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ottawa, we are also extremely fortunate to receive gifts of service. By supporting us with your gifts, we reallocate funds so they are streamed directly into our mentoring program.
Examples of In-Kind Gifts
Here are just a few of the In-Kind donations we’ve received that continue to help us offer our programs to the community:
- Tickets to events
- Gift certificates to local restaurants and spas
- Office supplies, including furniture
- Retail store gift cards
- New books, new toys, and new sporting equipment
- Design and print services
Please contact us to set up a meeting and arrange for your In-Kind donation.
