Support Life-Changing Friendships

It's not just a donation; it's an investment in a child's future.
When you donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northern Nevada, you directly support children in our community. No matter the amount, your donation makes a difference.

Donating pays dividends.

Research shows our mentoring works. Children with a Big Brother or Big Sister show positive 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 the distance.

Your financial support helps us provide programs and services in Northern Nevada — so we can develop more college grads, community leaders and entrepreneurs in our community, and give our home a brighter future.

Your financial support starts lots of things:

  • Ensure trained professionals match Littles to responsible Bigs, and enable ongoing supervision and support for every Big, Little and the Little's family.
