How does my donation make an impact?

It’s donations that keep us going. Not in the motivation sense, but in the actual financial solvency sense. We just plain need money to do what we do. But it’s more than that. Your donation has the power to quite literally change the lives of children in our community. Our Littles learn to avoid risky behaviors—like drugs or alcohol—and stay out of trouble. They gain greater confidence, develop social skills, and improve their relationships with family and friends. And they learn to value education, aim for excellence, and grow into responsible members of our community.

We’ll put your gift
to good use.

Donations from our community and corporate partners help fund vital services. Your generosity helps us perform thorough background checks for all our volunteers. It helps us support our matches with dedicated Match Specialists, who are professionally trained in social services. The result is more opportunities for our community’s youth—and that builds a stronger community.

Give in your own way.

Giving to Big Brothers Big Sisters doesn’t only mean writing checks. Don’t get us wrong, checks are great. But there are several other ways to support our mission, too. You can sponsor or participate in annual fundraising events like Bowl For Kids’ Sake. Attend an event like the Red Smith sports banquet, with proceeds benefiting our cause. Provide some in-kind services. Or if you just can’t wait to make an impact, donate securely right here on the website.

And you’re always welcome to just give us a call. We’ll happily work with you to help you get involved in your own way.
