Holiday Giving that Makes a Difference!

This time of year there are lots of places to give. We encourage you to consider supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters with a gift that will make a difference for a child - with positive outcomes that can last a lifetime. There are lots of ways to incorporate Big Brothers Big Sisters into your holiday giving routine!

TIME - Volunteer as a Big Brother or Big Sister, participate in Bowl for Kids Sake or help sell 50/50 tickets at a Halifax Mooseheads game (email bigbrothersbigsisters.ca for details.)

MONEY - A one-time or monthly donation is a gift that will have many returns! This past year, Boston Consulting Group conducted a multi-stage study comparing children in Big Brothers Big Sisters one-to-one programs to those without this advantage. Results showed our programs have significant, positive impact in the areas of mental health, employment and civic engagement. When they “did the math” on these benefits, the impact of increased taxes, greater spending from higher income and increased charitable donations, the findings were astounding. For every $1 invested in Big Brothers Big Sisters, the social return on investment is $18. When children in the program start out in economically disadvantaged situations, that return to society increases to $23.  

Want to make that kind of investment in kids in our community? DONATE HERE.
