Big  Brothers Big Sisters needs YOU.

Big Brothers Big Sisters receives 75% of our funding from private donations. Support from individuals like you is vital to provide mentors for children in greater Manchester. And we know they need them. It isn't easy being a kid these days. In these complex and confusing times, children need a caring adult to be a mentor and a friend — someone they can talk to, have fun with, and learn from.

Research shows that our mentoring works.

Kids with a Big Brother or Big Sister show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are:
  • More confident in their schoolwork performance
  • Able to get along better with their families
  • Able to get along better with their families
  • 52% less likely to skip school
Donating will help to:
  • Help recruit new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
  • Cover the costs of background checks and insurance, while ensuring trained professionals match children to caring and responsible Bigs
  • Offer one-on-one, ongoing supervision and support for every match
  • Provide cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children
No matter how much you give, donating will improve the lives of young people in your community. Your donation will help them meet the challenges of growing up into happy, confident young adults.

31st Annual Bowl For Kids' Sake

WHAT IS BOWL FOR KIDS' SAKE?

Bowl For Kids' Sake (BFKS) is the largest fundraising event of the year for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Manchester.  This year, with your help, we hope to raise $65,000!  100% raised through this event goes directly to our programs providing one-to-one mentoring for children facing adversity in the Greater Manchester and Greater Concord communities.  

Partnering with with Big Brothers Big Sisters through Bowl For Kids' Sake makes a positive, long-lasting impact on children right here in your community.  Whether you start a team, become a corporate sponsor, or make a donation your efforts ensure that more children can experience having a mentor who will help them achieve greater success in life and to make good choices both now and in the future.  We hope that you will join with us as together we start youth on the path to fulfilling their potential and succeeding in school and life!

HOW CAN I PARTICIPATE?

Start a team on our FirstGiving site or download a team registration form.  Create a bowling teamwith up to 5 other people and then start raising pledges for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Manchester.  Each person is asked to raise at least $50; people that raise over $100 are entered into other raffles for great prizes.   By using social media and/or sending emails to friends, family and colleagues we make it simple to make a difference in the life of a child.

WHAT IF BOWLING ISN'T MY THING BUT HELPING CHILDREN IS?

You can make a donation to someone else's team or start a page yourself and ask people to support you NOT to bowl.  Remember, Bowl For Kids Sake is about having fun to help kids--if bowling isn't your thing, we understand; you can still participate and help children become successful adults!
