Giving starts with you

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.

Why Give to Big Brothers Big Sisters

When you donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters, you join our cause and directly support children in your community. No matter how little or big the amount, donating can start making a difference in the lives of young people around you.

Research shows that our mentoring works. Children with a Big Brother or Big Sisters show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are more confident in their schoolwork performance, they get along better with their families and they're 52% less likely to skip school. Your financial support helps us provide our programs and services so we can develop more college graduates, community leaders, and entrepreneurs. Your financial support helps us: 

  • recruit new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
  • cover the costs of background checks, while ensuring trained professionals match Littles to responsible Bigs
  • enable ongoing supervision and relationship support for every Big, Little, and Little's family
  • provide cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children 

We hold ourselves accountable to our donors by regularly measuring the impact of our work and being transparent with our programming and financial statements.
