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 1,300 youth in Central Indiana this past year alone.

Your financial support starts lots of things, like:

  • recruiting new Bigs, Big Couple, and Big Friend 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
