Together, we are Defenders of Potential.


For our Grow Something Big fundraiser, we ask our best advocates, our Bigs, to tell the story of their match and ask their families, friends, and coworkers for support.

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 background check. Gifts of all sizes make our mission happen.

The money raised go toward creating new matches for kids like Ryan. Ryan is currently on our waitlist. He's looking forward to meeting his Big Brother.  He loves sports and enjoyed watching the Olympics. His mom hopes a Big Brother can help him learn to cope with being teased and can keep him active. He's been on our waitlist for more than a year.

Together we can truly grow something big for Ryan.
