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.

YOUR SUPPORT GOES FAR.
Your financial support helps us provide our programs and services nationally and in your local community—so we can develop more college grads, community leaders and entrepreneurs.
Your financial support starts lots of things, like:
- 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
- recruiting new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
- providing cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children
DONATING IS JUST THE START.
There are many great ways to support BBBS of Green County.
STOCKS & SECURITIES
Many donors are now making gifts to us in the form of stocks, bonds and mutual funds. As a donor, you are entitled to take a charitable deduction for the full fair-market value of appreciated securities held longer than one year, and you usually avoid paying the capital gains tax that would be due if you sold the securities.
FOUNDATION & CORPORATE GIVING
Major investments from foundations and corporations have enabled Big Brothers Big Sisters to connect with young people in unprecedented ways, so they can start on the path to unlimited potential—and maybe even start a business or foundation of their own some day.
Start putting your trust in us—literally. Making us a part of your trust, bequest or endowment can start many years of giving.
Your legacy can have an impact, too. A planned gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters ensures the continuation of our landmark mentoring programs and creates your own legacy of support. Planned giving also offers significant advantages, including tax breaks and a potential income increase.
