WHY GIVE

Each of your donations goes toward matching Littles with the Bigs who will stand beside them, even when no one else can. Someone who will have their back as they make their way to their biggest possible 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, they get along better with their families and they’re 52% less likely to skip school. Your contribution will create new matches for children on our waiting list and continue to support existing matches by covering these costs:

  • Background checks on prospective Big Brothers and Big Sisters
  • Personal safety training for children
  • Screening process of new volunteers
  • Case supervision of existing matches

You can donate to the program, here.
