In April, we’re kicking off our 2018 Grow Something Big fundraising challenge. Our Bigs join us for this fundraising effort to tell the story of their match and why mentoring matters to them. They'll be asking their friends, family, and colleagues for donations. All of those donations will go toward creating and supporting new matches in 2018.
All of our Bigs are volunteers from the community who selflessly give their time to a child who needs some additional support from an older friend. While they are not paid, it still costs our agency $1,200 to make a new match and support them for their first year. That's why your donation matters. There are 200 kids currently waiting for Bigs. Your $25 donation covers the cost of one volunteer interview. A $50 donation pays for a volunteer backgroundcheck. Gifts of all sizes make our mission happen.
