In the News



Every day, we work tirelessly to help inspire children to achieve great things. But without vital donations from folks who share our vision, we couldn’t continue to offer, much less expand, our critical mentoring services. When you contribute to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago, you’re investing in the success of these deserving young people. Please join our cause and help us broaden our reach while directly supporting the dreams of children in your own community.


For more than forty years, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago has collaborated with donors, community partners and volunteers to empower at-risk youth to reach their potential by nurturing their dreams and providing high-quality, one-to-one mentoring that enables lifelong success.

Our signature one-to-one mentoring model—pairing adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”)—along with our site-based and community-based programs are integral in building meaningful relationships based on trust and encouragement. In fact, we have made more than 20,000 one-to-one mentoring matches since our founding in 1967, resulting in an estimated 3 million hours of contact between Bigs and Littles.




Brighter Futures, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metropolitan Chicago’s first giving society, recognizes the generosity of those who share our passion: to help keep children out of trouble, on the path to graduate high school and to achieve post-graduate success. Donor participation ensures we may continue our efforts on behalf of the children who benefit from our signature one-to-one mentoring.

Your contribution automatically enrolls you in our Brighter Futures society.
