LIGHT ONE MATCH GIVING SOCIETY

The Light One Match Society is a leadership giving society that encompasses a distinguished group of donors making gifts of $2,000- $9,999 to assist Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana (BBBSCI) in creating and supporting mentoring relationships each fiscal year. To support just one match for an entire year costs BBBSCI $2,000 and with a growing wait list of kids that have asked for a mentor, generous donors at this level can help us reach more kids in our community.

  • Other agency communications and special event opportunities 
  • Invitation to annual Light One Match Society event to meet and network with other society members and agency leaders

Challenge Match for New Donors

Thanks to the generosity of Al and Shary Oak for making this new giving society possible, you can help BBBSCI create 50 new mentoring relationships in 2021. The Oak Family has committed a $50,000 challenge gift to match 50 new gifts of $1,000.

Al and Shary Oak are both dedicated supporters of BBBSCI and advocates for youth. Al was past president of Big Brothers of Greater Indianapolis, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, and has served as a Big Brother multiple times. Both Al and Shary have a deep affinity for mentoring after witnessing the impact of Big Brothers Big Sisters over the years. The two share one son, Adam, a daughter-in-law, Christen, and are proud grandparents to grandson, Miles. When they are not enjoying the Florida sunshine, they spend their time here in Indianapolis. BBBSCI is grateful for the support of the Oak family and for their commitment to the limitless potential of every child.
