Be a part of something Big

Your donation positively impacts a child’s life. Not to mention, it makes you a part of something big. Start something now.

It’s not just a donation. 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 or Big Sister show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are more confident in their schoolwork performance, they get along better with their families and they’re 52% less likely to skip school. 1

 

Your support goes far.

Your financial support helps us provide our programs and services nationally and in your local community—so we can develop more college grads, community leaders, and entrepreneurs.

Roughly 85% of every dollar you give goes directly to support our affiliates matching Littles with Bigs. Great Nonprofits, a leading provider of reviews and ratings of nonprofit organizations throughout the U.S, has ranked Big Brothers Big Sisters of America as a top Children's and Families Nonprofit and awarded us a 5-star rating. This means you can rest assured that we are using donations wisely.

Your financial support helps us:

  • recruit new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
  • cover the costs of background checks, while ensuring trained professionals match Littles to responsible Bigs
  • enable ongoing supervision and relationship support for every Big, Little and Little’s family
  • provide cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana will not share or sell a donor's personal information with anyone else, nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.
