Give Big

Help Children Reach Their Full Potential.
Give For A Brighter Future.

Your financial support helps us to do what we do best - empower kids in our community to achieve their full potential. Not everyone has the same opportunity in life, but your donation helps us develop more college grads, community leaders, business leaders and entrepreneurs.

The Need

Big Brothers Big Sisters serves children facing tough circumstances – kids from single-parent homes, kids with incarcerated parents, kids living at or below the poverty level, or kids who just need a positive role model in their lives. In Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey, there are over 250,000 of these kids who need our help.

Together We Can Make a Difference

Give financially so that we can help more children get passionate mentors and be a part of the Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence family. We know mentoring works. Last year, of children in our programs for 12 months or more:

  • 97% advanced to the next grade level
  • 86% improved their self confidence
  • 84% improved their outlook on the future
  • 80% improved their behavior
