BECOME A MONTHLY MATCHMAKER

WHAT IS A MATCHMAKER?

Matchmakers are monthly donors whose ongoing donations help us create life-changing friendships by "matching" children (Littles) and mentors (Bigs). Not everyone has the time to be a Big Brother or a Big Sister, but anyone can be a Matchmaker!

WHAT DO MATCHMAKERS DO?

Each time Big Brothers Big Sisters pairs a child with a mentor, we start something incredible: a one-to-one relationship built on trust and friendship that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential. We call these pairs "matches." When you donate $25.00 a month, you become a Matchmaker; your monthly sponsorship contributes to a lifetime of friendship, support, and happiness for each match.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

It's easy! Click the Donate Now button above, select the monthly gift option, and choose to donate $25.00 each month.

You may choose to donate more or less each month, $25.00 is the minimum to support a new match every month. Your donation will be automatically and securely deducted from your debit or credit card each month.

WHY SHOULD I BECOME A MATCHMAKER?

Matchmakers tell us that when they view their charitable giving relative to other monthly expenses, it really puts things in perspective. Being a Matchmaker is the easiest way to make a huge difference for a child needing additional support, with 90% of donated funds supporting youth.
 

  • $10/month supplies material for a Big's orientation training

  • $25/month provides assessment interviews for a Big or a Little

  • $35/month supports the first Match Meeting of a Little and a Big!

  • $50/month helps support the relationship between a Big, a Little, and a Parent/Guardian
