Giving back has never been this fun and fulfilling! Over the years, Best Collegiate Events has developed a great lineup of charity team building events resulting in the donation of tens of thousands of items for people in need of a helping hand. To this end, we have a dedicated charitable department that has built long-lasting relations with top local and national philanthropic organizations.

Our Collegiate charity events can be delivered anywhere in North America, and feature group bonding activities designed to boost team spirit and unity while helping less fortunate members of your community. These events include team activities, games, and interactive challenges along the way while your group gathers materials and assembles care packages for donation to local and national charities for the benefit of children, the physically challenged, homeless individuals and families, food banks, and more.

We are the leader in delivering corporate and collegiate CSR events. We have designed and trademarked some of the top charity team events in the industry, including Bike Build Donation®, Build-a-Guitar®, and Build-a-Wheelchair®, plus Helping the Homeless, Mini-Golf Build Food Donation, and STEM Backpacks for Kids. Social responsibility has never been so rewarding. Contact us to learn how we can help your team bond while giving back to the community!
