Invest in BBBS
When you donate, you graciously contribute to our mission and vision
It's an investment in a child’s future
When you donate online 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.
Donating pays dividends.
Research shows that our mentoring works. Children with a Big Brother, Big Sister or School Based Mentor show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are more confident in their school work performance, they get along better with their families and they are 52% less likely to skip school.
Your support goes far. Your financial support helps us provide our Community and School Based programs, along with Youth Protection, in our local community —so we can develop more college grads, community leaders and entrepreneurs.
Roughly 90% of every dollar you give goes directly to making and supporting matches between Littles and Bigs. Charity Navigator, the country’s premier independent charity evaluator, has awarded Big Brothers Big Sisters of America four out of four stars for organizational efficiency. This means you can rest assured that we are using donations wisely.
Your financial support starts lots of things, like:
• recruiting new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
• enabling ongoing supervision and relationship support for every Big, Little and School Based Match
• providing cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children
• ensuring all of our volunteers and Littles are trained in Youth Protection
