Since 2008, we’ve taken care of over 38,000 kids in 11 countries and donated over $250,000 worth of cash, school supplies, books, toys, sports equipment, food and medical supplies to schools, orphanages and local youth-based charities, bringing together the most at-risk kids together and developing leaders and carers from the rivers of Bangladesh to the peaks of Nepal.

In Canberra, we run camps and clinics for at-risk and disadvantaged kids, sponsor teams and individuals, engage and rehabilitate young people across the Territory, and run a very successful program called Night Hoops on Saturday nights in Belconnen.

We do all of this with $0 (yes ZERO) staff salaries and less than 7% admin costs every year.

We rely entirely on volunteer effort and donated funds…

On July 26th, Tongue & Groove and Fambiz will be throwing a charity fundraiser for us, and we’d love to see you there!

Do you do sponsorships?

Indeed we do, depending on the situation! Primarily we support at-risk or disadvantaged kids to pursue sporting opportunities, however in the past we’ve also supported various other sports or education related pursuits.

Send us through an email at pierre(at)bigbangballers.org and we’ll see if we can help.

Do you do sponsorships?

Thank you to the Rioter who emailed us asking if we take donations – of course! You can donate through our website or on the night. All donations over $2 are tax deductible.
