Make an Impact

84% of former Littles surveyed agree their experience influenced them in showing understanding to those less fortunate.

It’s not just a donation. It’s an investment in a child’s future.

When you donate online to Big Brothers Big Sisters, you join our cause and directly support children in your community. No matter how little or big the amount, donating can start making a difference in the lives of young people around you.

Donating pays dividends.

Research shows that our mentoring works. Children with a Big Brother or Big Sister show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are more confident in their schoolwork performance, they get along better with their families and they’re 52% less likely to skip school.1

Your support goes far.

Your financial support helps us provide our programs and services in your local community—so we can develop more college grads, community leaders and entrepreneurs.

Last year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa served 1,476 children. Through our Program Outcome Evaluations (POE) results, we can see the positive improvements in their attitudes and behaviors after only a few months of being matched. In 2010 our POE numbers demonstrated outstanding outcomes for our Littles, including:
  • 85% improved their self-confidence
  • 75% improved their academic performance
  • 64% improved their attitude towards school
  • 66% improved their relationships with their peers
  • 77% improved their relationships with their families
Your financial support starts lots of things, like:
  • recruiting new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
  • covering the costs of background checks, while ensuring trained professionals match Littles to responsible Bigs
  • enabling ongoing supervision and relationship support for every Big, Little and Little’s family
  • providing cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children
