Why donate to BBBS?

A local Big Brother and Little BrotherBBBS needs you.

Support from individuals like you is vital to provide mentors for children in your community. And we know they need them. It isn’t easy being a kid these days. In these complex and confusing times, children need a caring adult to be a mentor and a friend – someone they can talk to, have fun with, and learn from.

Research shows that our mentoring works.

Kids with a Big Brother or Big Sister show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are:

  • More confident in their school performance
  • Able to get along better with their families
  • 52% less likely to skip school.

The remainder covers overall program administration. Charity Navigator, the country’s premier independent charity evaluator, has awarded Big Brothers Big Sisters of America a 4-star “exceptional” rating for outstanding fiscal management for the fifth consecutive year. Donating will help to:

  • Offer one-on-one, ongoing supervision and support for every match
  • Provide cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children
