Fund a Big

Give the gift of mentoring. Change a community.

Alongside each child and mentor is the donor who made the friendship possible. Your gift, no matter how “big” or “little,” enables one-to-one mentoring to be a free, safe, and effective resource for families and children who want and need a positive, loving adult to be carefully placed into their child’s life. Young people who have a mentor are much more likely to be leaders, avoid incarceration, go on to college, and volunteer.

Even more, when you fund a Big for a Little, you propel a life-changing ripple effect for the surrounding family members and the generations that follow.
