Our Business Circle

“It takes a village to raise a child!”

This wise proverb couldn’t be more true.  BGC South Vancouver Island (BGCSVI) has a rich history of helping change the lives of children and youth in our community.  But we can’t do it alone. We need your help.

If your business has a Corporate Social Responsibility policy, needs employee volunteer opportunities or has a heart for giving back to your community, please consider joining our Business Circle Club.  By supporting BGCSVI as a Business Circle member, you are spreading the word to your customers about your values and intentions as a company – that you value giving back to strengthen our community.

Research shows that consumers are more willing to purchase goods and services from companies that engage with charitable organizations. This can oftentimes be a cornerstone of your brand.  It can define your business as different from your competition and can strengthen your relationship with existing customers, with the potential to attract new consumers. In today’s world, “generosity is the new marketing”.

What Does it Cost to Become A Business Circle Member?

For as little as $210 per month or $2,500 per year, you can join The Club.
