What if every child fulfills his or her potential?
What if every child is set on the right path today?
What if every child in Canada finishes high school, goes to college or university, gets a job and gives back to their community? Wouldn’t that be something?
Every donation of time or money starts something that could lead to something big.
Big Brothers Big Sisters makes a difference in our community by providing children in need with one-to-one mentoring services that are proven to help kids stay in school, avoid risky behavior such as bullying, and grow up to be more civic-minded adults. You make a difference by providing funding needed for our professional, trained staff to carefully screen volunteers and match them in long-term, safe mentoring relationships, while providing necessary ongoing management and support for the volunteers, children and families.
Please fill out the form to complete your donation.

Important to Know:
All cryptocurrency donations are final and non-refundable. No goods, services or airdrops will be offered in exchange for cryptocurrency donations. See The Giving Block’s donation refund policy here.
Frequently asked questions:
As mentioned, donating cryptocurrency is a non-taxable event. Donors do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated crypto that is donated and can typically deduct the fair market value of the donation on their taxes. This often makes Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support your favorite cause.
Talk to a crypto-savvy tax professional or connect with The Giving Block to get connected with one. If you want to learn more about how donating crypto can lower your taxes, check out thegivingblock.com/faq.
