Our Partners

Our business partners provide a generous helping hand in bettering the lives of boys without dads around. Each partner understands the commitment Big Buddies are making to boys' lives and are thrilled to join the Big Buddy village in making this positive difference.

Foundation Partner

GJ Gardner Homes is our Foundation Partner, and they've gone to great lengths to support the Big Buddy cause.

In 2015 an idea was coined with GJ Gardner Homes, to build selected houses and give the profits to Big Buddy. In August 2017, homes in South Auckland and Hamilton went under the hammer, as seen to the right. These auctions collectively generated over $300,000 for Big Buddy. These funds paid for the opening of the Hamilton office and allowed our Auckland office to expand into South Auckland as far as Franklin.

Check out the fantastic TV advertisements (top right) that GJ's put together with media personality Simon Barnett and a host of our wonderful Big and Little Buddies.

As of December 2019, another Papakura Franchise home is being sold, with all profits going to Big Buddy. Read the full story here....then watch this space!

What's the next step?

Business partnerships are a fun, engaging way to make a positive impact on the lives of boys without a father around. They also leave members of your business community feeling good about their collective contribution to a great cause! Some of those involved become a Big Buddy; some make a donation. Either way, it all helps to make a big difference.
