Getting Started:

Our ability to provide children and families with a child-friendly environment and effective, comprehensive services would not be possible without the support of the community.

Support Bivona by hosting your own event. Our children benefit from the financial contributions, and you help raise awareness about child abuse. Bivona staff can help you with ideas, marketing material, and publicity on our website.

Your fundraising efforts could raise awareness of child abuse, give a family access to transportation so their child can receive services each week, or help a teenager pay for group therapy sessions.

As the only agency in its county to provide these services, Bivona takes great pride in its reputation as a prominent organization in the Greater Rochester community. In order to uphold this reputation and continue providing children and their families with the services and support they need, it is of great importance that any third-party events adhere to Bivona’s fundraising policy.

All third-party events must be submitted and approved by Bivona. Start this process by accessing our third-party event request form here!

-          The event must be free of the potential to cause any legal problems
