Sponsorship Opportunities

The Great Big Auction is our signature fundraising event, yielding over $150k annually to support mentoring programs for youth in the tri-county area. Featuring both a live and silent auction, items are procured by a dedicated group of volunteers.

The proceeds from the event help the agency continue to serve the youth of Detroit by providing meaningful, life-changing mentor relationships.


Unlike many other non-profit organizations in the community that serves children, we do not charge a fee to the families or volunteer mentors in our programs. That means that 100% of our operating budget comes from donations, grants, and funds raised from our events.

Sponsoring the Great Big Auction doesn’t just offer a return on investment for your organization; it also provides a substantial return on investment in our community. Our success yields resilient kids, strong families, and healthy communities. Be a defender of potential!

Deadline for sponsorship confirmation — August 30, 2022
