Sponsor change in your community.

Partners. Heroes.

Successful partnerships with businesses, foundations, and organizations are fundamental to supporting children. They provide for children in need and contribute to brighter futures, better schools, and stronger communities for all.


Types of Partnerships 

Partners and sponsors can support us through a variety of resources.

Philanthropic gifts
Direct donations, event sponsorship, and grants fund individual children's support resources as well as mentoring programs.  Each mentoring relationship costs $1000 per year to support, so a corporate gift can go a long way to meeting the needs of more children. 

Organizational engagement
To build a deeper partnership, Big Brothers Big Sisters offers structured programs linking the organization to a specific school in the community, and supports direct matches between company employees and children.

There are often unque ways in which Big Brothers Big Sisters can share resources with community organizations with similar goals, communities, or audiences.  Often these tradeoffs provide stronger value than either organization is able to pursue on its own.  

Cause marketing
Advocacy, action-triggered donations, skills-based volunteering,  digital advocacy, and message promotion are just a few of the many ways a partnership can be created to serve the unique goals and connections between your organization and Big Brothers Big Sisters.


We are grateful for our partners.
