Boo-ling For Kids' Sake!

Big Brothers Big Sisters Lincoln invites you to join us for this year's Bowl For Kids' Sake (BFKS)! This signature fundraiser is celebrated by hundreds of BBBS agencies across the country. Every year, half a million people across America come together to have fun and raise money to support Big Brothers Big Sisters. Once our campaign ends, we host a BIG bowling celebration for our fundraising teams.

This year's party will take place at Parkway Lanes, courtesy of 48 Bowl. The theme is Boo-ling For Kids' Sake, so be sure to wear your favorite Halloween attire 🎃 Costumes are welcome and encouraged!

Sounds like a blast, right? Here is how it works:

1) Create a team: As team captain, recruit 5-6 rock stars to join you in making a difference. These can be anyone - friends, colleagues, and family members are popular picks.

Joining a team isn't a requirement either - If you would like to create a solo fundraising page or simply donate to our campaign, that is also welcome!

2) Set up your team's fundraising page: Once you have a team, click "Start Fundraising" (found above). This will walk you through creating a fundraising page for you and your team.

It is only necessary for the team captain to create a fundraising page. The team captain's page will be given a custom URL that should be shared with teammates to spread the word!

After you click "Start Fundraising," you will be prompted to either create a Network For Good Account or to log in with an existing one. You may already have an account, especially if you've donated to us in the past. If you cannot remember your password, click "Forgot Your Password?" to reset your password.

Feel free to spice up your page as well! Get creative, and have fun!

Teams must be registered by October 9, so there is enough time to order t-shirts. We ask that each team aims to reach a goal of $500 by October 12. This is not a deadline, but our suggestion for when to reach your goal. Your team can continue fundraising until the day of the bowling party (October 22-23).


Make sure to click "Submit For Review" when you finish creating your fundraising page! In the approval email, the team captain will receive a link to register a bowling time slot for your team.


Having trouble? Check out this video we made to help you set up a fundraising page! You can also contact Kyle Bishop at kbishop@bbbslincoln.org for more questions.

3) Start fundraising! Connect with potential donors and shoot for the goal you've set. Your fundraising page is automatically given templates to use for social posts and emails, so feel free to edit and make use of them while reaching out! Prizes will be given to our highest-performing teams, so shoot for the stars!

Templates for social posts and emails are found at the top of your fundraising page after it has been approved. If you would like to share them with team members, we recommend copying/pasting the templates and sending them to your team!

4) Celebrate! After your campaign ends, the party begins! As our main event approaches, sign-up forms will be sent out to teams for reserving a date/time to enjoy a game of bowling, raffle drawings, a costume contest, and more! We appreciate all of the efforts our fundraisers put into BFKS, and we want to reward you for contributing to the impact that mentoring brings to Lincoln's young people.

BBBS Lincoln is excited to bring back this long-held tradition, but we need your help! The work our fundraising teams put in will bring a wider range of activities to our matches, provide valuable training/resources to volunteer mentors and families of mentees, and allow us to continue providing mentoring experiences that empower potential in our youth. THANK YOU!

Happy Fundraising, and Good Luck!
