The problem: Children throughout our community need caring adults in their lives. More than 200 kids are waiting for mentors.

The solution: Heroes like you!

A $100 gift makes you a sponsor of the 2018 Hero Matches. As a sponsor, you’ll follow 12 Bigs and Littles over the course of the year. You’ll see updates about their enrollment, matching, outings, and their progress.

Additionally, your name will be listed in the Albany Business Review to say thank you for providing children facing adversity with strong, enduring, professionally supported, one-to-one mentoring relationships. These relationships will change their lives for the
better, forever.
