Bowl For Kids’ Sake (BFKS) is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ (BBBS) largest national fund-raising campaign. For over 35 years, Bowl For Kids’ Sake has been a primary funding stream for BBBS agencies.

It’s not about bowling, it’s about kids. The primary way that revenue is generated from BFKS is by individuals who solicit donations from their circle of contacts to support their best bowling game at a Big Brothers Big Sisters hosted party. In addition, corporate and business sponsors provide cash and contributions to underwrite event costs.

Bowl For Kids’ Sake raises funds critical to the Big Brothers Big Sisters program. The funds directly impact the children we serve by offering a professionally supported relationship between a caring adult and a child. We also provide monthly activities, school supplies, and more for the children in our program. 

Here are a few examples of how our program benefited from last year’s event:

  • 54 new matches were made and 195 youth received services
  • 23 match events were provided
  • 100% of youth enrolled in the program were able to avoid delinquency
  • 91% of youth enrolled in the program improved or maintained grades
