Why give to big brothers big sisters?
At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we appreciate all supporters, from donors to volunteers to advocates. Your donations help us make and sustain matches between Bigs and Littles - and instantly make you a part of our family. By donating to our organization, you are joining our mission of positively affecting children in your community. Every day, we work tirelessly to change the perspectives of children and give them an opportunity to achieve great things. But without donations, we couldn’t offer our mentoring service.
IT'S NOT JUST A DONATION.
IT'S AN INVESTMENT IN A CHILD'S FUTURE.
Research shows that our mentoring works. Children with a Big Brother or Big Sister show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are more confident in their schoolwork performance and get along better with their families.
94% of every dollar you donate goes directly to making and supporting matches. The remainder covers overall program administration.
Support from individuals like you is vital to provide mentors for children in our community. There are no fees for our services and all of the people who serve as officers and members of the board do so voluntarily. Big Brothers/Big Sisters are all volunteers and the agency employs a small professional staff.
Every $1 Donated to a Big Brothers Big Sisters Program generates a return to society of $18
