Why Give to Big Sisters?
Your financial support allows us to provide careful screening and matching of volunteers with children, as well as the ongoing professional needed to keep the mentoring relationships going strong. We promise to hold ourselves accountable to our donors by regularly measuring the impact of our work.
Your donation is an investment in the people, systems, and technology that allow us to create and support matches between girls facing adversity and caring adult mentors.
We believe that changing the course of young lives can, in turn, change our community’s future. Your donations help us make and sustain matches between Bigs and Littles - and instantly make you a part of our family.
Your Donation Starts Something
Studies show that our mentoring services help kids stay in school, and this can eventually mean a reduction in poverty and unemployment. Mentoring helps kids avoid risky behaviour such as bullying, which can lead to safer schools and neighbourhoods. And mentoring helps kids learn the importance of helping others, growing up to be more civic-minded adults.
We seek to put girls on a path to lifelong success and change the trajectories of their lives in positive ways. To achieve our mission, we focus on these specific youth outcomes:
- educational achievement
- avoidance of risky behaviors
- higher self-esteem, confidence, and the ability to relate to others
By donating to Big Sisters, you are joining us in positively affecting children in your community.
