Big Brothers Big Sisters changes lives for the better, Little by Little!
It costs approximately $1,000 a year to sustain one match (mentor relationship).
As Sioux Falls' largest donor and volunteer supported mentoring organization, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Sioux Empire makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (Bigs) and children (Littles). Through the power of mentoring, we help children realize their potential and strengthen our communities and we couldn’t do it without you.
With your help, we can give a Little something back to the Sioux Empire community. We believe that inherent in every child is the ability to succeed and thrive in life. Most children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters come from low-income households and often with a single parent or where one is or has been incarcerated. The mentoring relationships improve the odds that children served by our organization focus more on academics, avoid violence and illegal activities, and have stronger relationships with their family and friends. All proceeds will help youth in the Sioux Empire Community to be matched with a Big Brother, Big Sister, Big Couple, or Mentor Mom.
You may also donate $20 for a chance to rappel! For every $20 donation*, we will write your name on a playing card and draw a winner after 52 donations are received. If you don't want to rappel, you may select someone else to go Over the Edge in your place! Click the 'Donate' button at the top of the page and you will automatically be entered into the drawing for every $20 you donate. #OTEforBBBS
