Your donation today will inspire a child to reach his or her full potential through an ongoing relationship with a caring adult. Please give generously – your donation is vital to Big Brothers Big Sisters efforts to help more children.
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.
Research shows that our mentoring works. Children with a Big Brother, Big Sister or School Based Mentor 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.
Your financial support helps us provide our Community and School Based programs along with Youth Protection in our local community —so we can develop more college grads, community leaders and entrepreneurs.
Roughly 80% of every dollar you give goes directly to making and supporting matches between Littles and Bigs in the Helena area.
