Big Connection Resources

Resources to help individuals and corps fundraise for The Big Connection (previously known as the Big Collection).  

Welcome to The Big Connection!

The Big Connection is our annual fundraising initiative for The Salvation Army’s Social Work Trust. This appeal is about more than just raising funds - it's about sharing our vision and inviting others to join our mission. It’s an opportunity to give our time, energy, prayers, and the money we raise back to God and to show his love to people who are in most need in our communities. Through this initiative, we can build real connections in our community and invite everyone to be part of making it better.
