NextGear Capital’s longstanding partnership has made it possible for BBBSCI to serve thousands of children in Central Indiana. NextGear Capital has championed The Main Event, BBBSCI’s largest annual fundraiser as the presenting sponsor for seven years! As the presenting sponsor, NextGear Capital plays an essential role in helping fund our mission and it doesn’t stop there. The NextGear Capital leadership team always dives right in and they play a key role in the success of The Main Event silent auction as well. In addition to The Main Event, NextGear Capital has supported the Big Futures: Career and College Readiness program, helping to prepare high school-aged Littles for success after high school graduation. NextGear Capital directly supports BBBSCI matches by donating tickets to sporting events so Bigs and Littles can build meaningful friendships together. NextGear Capital prioritizes volunteer engagement, with three current employees serving as Bigs and Patty Turner, NextGear Capital’s Director of Facilities, Internal Events and Community Relations, has served on the BBBSCI Board of Directors for many years, holding leadership positions on both the Board and event committees.
