Big Brothers Big Sisters

Together, the future looks big.

Potential lives within every kid. Yet, more than 8.5 million kids are still in need of someone who will stand in their corner. So, we've sharpened our focus. Reimagined how we do things. Modernized how we look and talk. And we are creating new, exciting ways to put our Littles first like never before.

We are the new Big Brothers Big Sisters. We're here to defend every kid's potential. We're ready to build the biggest possible future. Together. And this is only just the beginning.

Workplace Giving

August 27, 2018, Arianna Lyksett

Did you know that you may have the option to designate a gift from your paycheck to Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities through your employer’s workplace giving program? Big things are happening in little ways every day for thousands of children across the Twin Cities community and you can be a part of it.

Our donors through workplace giving make a huge difference in the lives of Twin Cities’ children like Noah.

A few years into their match, Little Brother Noah and Big Brother Keith took advantage of college readiness resources offered to Littles including ACT prep classes, financial aid information sessions, and campus tours.

95% of college visit participants report a greater motivation to go to college. Now, Noah is a college graduate. He graduated from St. John’s University in 2017.  Noah later shared,

“I want to prove to myself for everyone that’s helped me along the way — family members and especially Keith who has been such a huge influence in what I am today — I want to show them that all work and effort they put into help raise me, it was good, it’s going to turn out for the best.”

Please consider designating a gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities through your employer’s workplace giving program. They make it easy by deducting the donation from your paycheck over the course of a year and coordinating the donation with us.

Your support means so much to the Littles, Bigs, and families whose lives are being changed by our programs. If you have any questions or would like more information, reach out to Micaela.
