Adopt-A-Match

Adopting a match gives you the opportunity to adopt one or more matches which pairs a mentor with a local child or youth.

A recent study revealed that donors can expect an $18 dollar return for every $1 invested in the Big Brothers Big Sisters program.

Your investment of $1800 ensures the presence of a mentor in a young person’s life for one year and could result in $32,400 in Social Return On Investment for your community!

Corporate Giving

Philanthropy starts with you. Big Brothers Big Sisters is grateful for financial support from corporations. Without the aid and support of many different businesses - ranging from multinational corporations to small- and medium-sized businesses - we would be unable to continue our efforts and achieve our nationally recognized results.

Stocks & Securities

Start helping young people profit. Many donors are now making gifts to us in the form of stocks, bonds and mutual funds. You invest. A young person profits. It’s that simple. By making a donation in the form of stocks, bonds, mutual funds or other appreciated securities, you are making an investment in the future of children and youth in your community.

As a donor, you are entitled to take a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of appreciated securities held longer than one year, and you usually avoid paying the capital gains tax that would be due if you sold the securities.
