Start Something Today

Sponsor change in your community.

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.

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 1,200 youth in central Indiana this past year alone.

Since our organization was founded more than three decades ago, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana has been working to improve children's lives by equipping them with the skills and confidence needed to achieve their fullest potential.

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
