Take a moment to look around the community you call home. Did you know that there are currently 128 youth anxiously waiting for someone to become a part of their life and make a difference? Have you ever thought that person could be you?
While we actively seek out new people to become Big Brothers, Big Sisters or Big Couples, we also understand that you might be at a point in your life where you cannot yet commit to a yearlong mentoring friendship. Never fear! There are other ways you can support Big Brothers Big Sisters. One way you can align with our mission is by offering consistent support to a match in the form of a monthly monetary donation. We refer to these monthly supporters as Match Makers! The name says it all. As a Match Maker, you play an integral part in a match between an adult mentor and a child in our community who needs one the most.
Your donation each month, which can be done through automatic bank withdrawal or charge on your credit card, will ignite a life-changing friendship. It’s truly amazing how small contributions over time can grow and transform the work our organization is able to provide each and every day. Take a look at the impact your monthly support can have on our Littles. Your donation amount each month, combined with that of other Match Makers’ contributions, will produce amazing results (as showcased below). Together, we are empowering potential and providing a better future for the youth in our community!
$15/month – Recruit new volunteer mentors
$25/month – Screen and train new Big Brothers, Big Sisters and Big Couples
$35/month – Introduce a new match
$50/month – Offer new experiences to our youth through an agency activity
