Invesco has been supporting a number of Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies since 2002 through their Professional Development Day program. In 2004, Invesco chose to increase their support with Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) and became the National Partner of Bowl For Kids Sake, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Canada’s (BBBSC) signature fundraising event.

With their support, BBBSC established a brand identity for Bowl For Kids Sake with the development of branded promotional materials for Bowl for Kids Sake and national support to member agencies.

In addition, Invesco's support gave BBBSC the opportunity to establish a program to support agencies with the use of online pledging to increase event awareness and overall funds raised.

We are grateful to Invesco for their current and past support and the opportunity it has given BBBSC to develop a national Bowl For Kids Sake program and aid BBBSC agencies in growing their campaigns to ultimately serve more children in communities throughout Canada.
