Resources for Donors
Your donation positively impacts a child’s life. Not to mention, it makes you a part of something big.
Your support goes far
By matching kids with caring, adult mentors, we provide them with a much needed positive influence in their lives. Through the power of these relationships, our "Littles" are exposed to a world of possibility and hope they might never have imagined otherwise.
Through the generous support of corporations, foundations, and individuals just like you, we are able to provide important services to many children in our community, including more than 1,100 youth in Central Indiana this past year alone.
Quite simply, we could not continue to serve the youth of Central Indiana without your ongoing support. Thank you.
Your financial support starts lots of things, like:
- recruiting new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
- covering the costs of background checks, while ensuring trained professionals match Littles to responsible Bigs
- enabling ongoing supervision and relationship support for every Big, Little and Little’s family
- providing cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children
