In addition to a strong sense of fellowship, the Bow River Boys are committed to raising serious coin for their designated charities.

On a LOCAL level, the club supports:

Big Brothers & Big Sisters Big Brothers Big Sisters of Calgary and Area (www.bbbscalgary.com).

A major portion of the proceeds from the annual Bow River fundraisers are donated to this organization that helps to build strong self-esteem and stronger communities through the school mentoring program and by matching children from single-parent families with a Big Brother or Sister.BBBS Donation

This is one way that healthy adults, and subsequently healthy communities, are created.

Bow River is also pleased to support:

On a NATIONAL level, Bow River supports:

Canadian Special Olympics

Special OlympiansSupport is provided through the Canadian Progress Charitable Foundation (CPCF).

With help from CPCF funding, Canada's Special Olympic athletes are able to participate in international competitions.


While raising money is certainly an objective of the Bow River club, maintaining a hands-on presence within the local community is also a very important aspect of Bow River membership.   The Bow River Boys contribute time, energy, and good old-fashioned physical labour to various community projects.
