Our cause is one that gives persons of any background the ability to make donations in Utah, and while there are plenty of ways to donate, not all donations support the community quite like ours do. The donations in Utah that are made out to us provide children facing adversity a one-to-one relationship that will change their lives for the better. If it weren’t for the donations we receive, we would not be able to do this.
Here are the four specific ways you can donate to BBBSU:
- FINANCIAL DONATIONS
As is the case with all the donations we receive, financial contributions help empower our Littles (the mentored kids in our program) to realize their potential. The fastest and easiest way to support our mission is by making one of these charitable contributions online. With financial donations, you can make a one-time donation or schedule your donations each month. You can also honor a family member, friend, or past Big (mentor) or Little by making out your donation in their name.
- USED ITEM DONATIONS
If you want to support our mission but feel that making a financial contribution isn’t possible, you can donate any unwanted clothes or household items instead. People make donations in Utah like this all the time, but when you give us your used items, you can rest assured that it will go to a good cause. The items you give us are either resold, recycled or sent to developing countries. These contributions support our mentoring programs, help other individuals from outside of our country, and protect the environment by keeping fewer items out of our landfills.
3. SMITH’S INSPIRING DONATIONS
Smith’s Inspiring Donations has made it easy to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Utah. Every time you shop at a Smith’s store with your rewards card, Smith’s will donate .5% of your total order to the nonprofit of your choice.
Outside of the used item donations, the other two types of donations we’ve mentioned are sometimes difficult for people to make, but there is one more way you can help — AmazonSmile. If you have an Amazon account and make orders through them, you can shop from eligible products at the same prices, but with every purchase you make, 0.5 percent of the purchase will go to the charitable organization of your choice; Big Brothers Big Sisters is one of the options provided.
When you make donations in Utah, be sure to make it out to Big Brothers Big Sisters. Over 90,000 kids are living in poverty in our state, and we do everything we can to eliminate any disadvantageous gaps they face. Through a personal, one-to-one mentoring program, we don’t create potential for these kids but defend it. Stand with us and support these kids by donating to us today!
