IT’S THE MOST WONDERFUL TIME OF THE YEAR! TOMORROW IS “ARIZONA GIVES DAY”!
On Arizona Gives Day, Arizonans will come together to support their favorite causes. This 24-hour, statewide campaign, on April 3rd, helps to raise awareness about nonprofits in Arizona and the role they play in making a difference in our community.
Arizona Gives Day has helped raise over $10.1 million for the nonprofit sector of Arizona. It helps inspire individuals to give generously to the causes they are passionate about. This day brings Arizona together to create a stronger community.
As some of you may already know, we create life-changing friendships for children in central Arizona who are in need of a caring adult mentor. We know that a positive adult mentor can help make all the difference for these children.
Did you know, after being matched with a Big:
81% of Littles are more likely to graduate high school
95% of Littles report having a higher self-esteem
90% of Littles report increased grades in school
With over 250 boys on our waitlist we are faced with an URGENT need for Big Brothers. BBBS needs men to step up and become a mentor to these children. One way to get involved is by making a donation on Arizona Gives Day. We strongly believe that with increased resources, we can match more children to end our waitlist. We are counting on your support! You can make your donation: HERE
