Big Brothers Big Sisters Fund
The Whistler and Pemberton Big Brothers and Sisters Fund was established in 2002 by a generous donor who had been a long-standing member of the board of directors for the Whistler and Pemberton Big Brothers Big Sisters Society. The donor and the Society wished to see the organization have a stable source of funding. The purpose of the fund is to support the ongoing costs of the Big Brothers Big Sisters programs in the Sea to Sky Corridor.
Whistler and Pemberton Big Brothers Big Sisters Society is now known as Big Brothers Big Sisters Sea to Sky Corridor.
The fund consists of principal that is invested over the long term. The interest earned on the fund each year goes to support Big Brothers Big Sisters Sea to Sky Corridor.
Gifts to the fund are placed into the investment, creating a permanent source of support for the local Big Brothers Big Sisters programs, helping them do good work forever. It's a simple way to build income for the charity you love.
The fund is professionally managed and overseen by the Community Foundation of Whistler.
Donors can leave a bequest to Big Brothers Big Sisters through the Community Foundation of Whistler, creating a personal legacy that will benefit the library for all the years to come.
In today's fast-paced environments, children need stable positive influcences more than ever. When our children are emotionally, socially and physically healthy, everyone in the community benefits.
Big Brothers Big Sisters Sea to Sky helps local children grow into more resilient, more giving, and more compassionate adults through mentoring. Families and Whistler have free access to a variety of mentoring services for their children, including one-to-one mentoring, in-school programs, and Go Girls!, an eight-week group mentoring program that encourages physical activity, healthy eating, and positive self-image among pre-teen and teen girls.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is committed to building strong friendships because healthy relationships create long-lasting change.
Join them in strengthening our community, one child at a time.
