Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southern Arizona is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. When you donate online or by mail you join our cause and directly support children in your community. No matter how little or big the amount, donating can make a difference in the lives of young people around you.
Research shows that our mentoring works. Children (Littles) with a Big Brother, Big Sister, Big Couple or school-based mentor show significant strides in their personal and academic lives. They are more confident in their schoolwork performance, they get along better with their families and they are 52% less likely to skip school.
Your financial support helps us provide our programs and services in the Southern Arizona metro area, so we can develop more high school and college graduates, community leaders and entrepreneurs. Nearly 80% of every dollar you give goes directly to making and supporting Matches between Littles and Bigs.
Big Brothers Big Sisters is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Charity in the BBB Wise Giving Alliance and a Platinum Level GuideStar participant, with demonstrated commitment to transparency. This means you can rest assured that we are using donations wisely.
