Help us to get TEN kids off our waitlist!

Tonight we’ve set an ambitious goal of reducing the number of children who are waiting for their Big by 10. To do this we need your help.  

It costs Big Brothers Big Sisters of London and Area approximately $1,500 to support a match for one year. The funds are used for professional volunteer recruitment, screening and training, and ongoing match support from our experienced Mentoring Coordinators.

In order to get 10 kids off our waitlist immediately, we need to raise $15,000. While we realize this is a BIG ask of our supporters, we know the impact it will make will be even BIGger. The Littles we match will turn your $15,000 investment into $270,000 for our community. 

Research shows that for every $1 invested into our programs $18 is returned to our society. That’s because with a Big in their lives, our Littles are more likely to finish school, land management positions, break the cycle of generational poverty, form stronger social bonds and grow up to be adults who also volunteer and give back.
