Your Donation Counts!

Funding for the programs of Big Brothers Big Sisters comes from foundations, corporations, United Way and special events, such as Bowl for Kids’ Sake and our annual Golf Tournament. In addition, we rely on donations from individuals who endorse our mentoring mission.

Support from individuals like you is vital to provide mentors for children in your community. And we know they need them. It isn’t easy being a kid these days. In these complex and confusing times, children need a caring adult to be a mentor and a friend — someone they can talk to, have fun with, and learn from.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Connecticut is a 501(c) 3, non-profit agency recognized by the IRS and the State of CT. All charitable gifts made to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southwestern Connecticut are tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.

Your support in any amount is greatly appreciated (and needed). Each Big-Little match comes at an approximate annual cost to the agency of $1,000. In order to continue to serve the kids already enrolled in our programs, while trying to match those on our waiting list, we need your help.
