Give Financially

Your financial support helps us provide our programs to children in our community who need it the most and will help us develop more college grads, community leaders and entrepreneurs.

BE A BIG

For a few hours a week or month (depending on the program), you can give a Little the invaluable gift of your friendship. By simply changing his or her perspective of what the world can offer, you can literally start changing his or her life. And sometimes it’s as simple as playing video games, going to a museum, or just hanging out together.

Get A Big

As a parent, you recognize the potential of your child better than anyone. By giving them the opportunity to be part of Big Brothers Big Sisters, you’re starting them down a path to an even brighter, more promising future.

Grapes Success

Our 9th Annual Grapes for Kids’ Sake, presented by Signet Jewelers, offered this year’s guests a new venue, excellent wine and food pairings, and an exciting silent and live auction. Lake Forest Country Club hosted over 150 of our friends and supporters, and we honored a Community Partner of the Year, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company, for their contributions to the agency during 2017. Thanks to the generosity of our guests and sponsors, this year’s Grapes for Kids’ Sake doubled its monetary impact for our agency from the previous year!

Thank You
