A Big Help

Partners. Heroes.

Every company or organization offers a unique asset to positively impact the life-changing friendships at Big Brothers Big Sisters. Together we’ll provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.

When you partner with our agency, your organization benefits, too. Not only will you help build a stronger community, you’ll increase employee engagement and performance, and gain a stronger public image. While we will design a partnership that best fits your distinctive culture, we have found the following avenues for involvement successful:

  • Invite us to speak to your employees about volunteer opportunities at Big Brothers Big Sisters
  • Encourage your employees to become Big Brother, Sister or Couple volunteers. We can help promote by providing posters and newsletter copy
  • Help us recruit volunteers for the School-Based Mentoring Program
  • Offer paid release time to your employees, provide flex-time to accommodate scheduling or make volunteering a team activity
  • Sponsor a Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteer and child activity at your facility
  • Offer discounts for volunteers and children at your place of business
  • Donate tickets to area events
  • Professionally support a child and volunteer for one year by contributing $1,200.
  • Recruit teams for our annual Bowl For Kids’ Sake event
  • Help us spread the word, ”like” us on Facebook and Twitter
  • Help us fulfill our Wishlist

In addition to organization-wide partnerships, high-level officers can be considered for board member positions.
