Philanthropy has long been part of BIG’s business plan. In fact, you’ll find a service component in the vast majority of successful companies, agencies, etc. From sponsoring the local Little League team to hosting fundraiser to donating to the local PTA to putting up posters in the front window, giving back to the community will usually pay off many times over in referrals and just plain good will.
Each year, BIG hosts a golf tournament before your annual convention. The association has been able to make a nice contribution both to the Aktion Club and the Pomona Valley Workshop. The Aktion Club, a Kiwanis Club affiliate, provides adults living with disabilities the opportunity to develop initiative, leadership skills and to serve their communities. The PVW provides developmentally disabled adults with vocational training, employment preparation and placement services.
