JA Bowl-a-Thon

Presented by Bank of America to support Junior Achievement of WNY.

Due to COVID-19, the JA Bowl-a-Thon has moved to a virtual fundraiser. 

The JA Bowl-A-Thon represents one-quarter of our office’s total budget.

It is our hope that all participants continue to utilize this site to fundraise and/or donate online as planned.

Get the Ball Rolling for JA Kids!

The JA Bowl-A-Thon, presented by Bank of America, is not only a fun event; it is also JA’s largest annual peer-to-peer fundraiser. Proceeds from the JA Bowl-A-Thon help JA to provide financial literacy, work readiness, and entrepreneurial programs to over 16,000 Western New York students within 174 schools and community sites.

As WNY's largest bowling fundraiser, the JA Bowl-A-Thon has been a corporate moral-boosting event for the past 36 years! During the months leading up to our March events, participants create teams, raise funds, all for local JA students!
