Big Brothers Big Sisters Mentoring Open and Operating in a safe way 


2020 has been a tough year, but there’s one bright spot – our mentors have stepped up to connect with their Littles in safe and effective ways. More than ever, kids who need a positive adult role model are turning to Big Brothers Big Sisters – and we need to be there to help them! YOUR GIFT this holiday season will make that possible.

Every day we work hard to support positive adult role models for children in our area. We are defenders of potential – and this holiday season YOU can give a child the gift of a positive mentor. Each and every gift goes directly and immediately to help kids in our area.

Your gift will ignite the promise of youth for children in the Capital Region.  There has NEVER been a more important time to provide kids with a safe, screened, and reliable adult mentor. Your donation makes that life-changing work possible! 

As we work to sustain our mentoring services and fill the gap in these unique times of “social distancing,” we need your financial support to sustain these vital efforts. Your generosity is key to our success.

Please donate today in support of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Capital Region. Please, be as generous as you can.

With much gratitude,

Lea Montalto-Rook

Chief Executive Officer
