Help to build brighter futures for Chicagoland youth

When our partners talk—we listenYou’ve read a lot about Big Brothers Big Sisters in our own words. But our partners also have a point of view worth hearing, too.

What Our Partners Say

“The Metro Chicago Board saw the potential of Lake County in terms of the number of kids we could serve by leveraging Chicago’s existing infrastructure, we realized we could create a stronger organization with a much greater reach into the community.”
-Mark Kaufman, BBBSMC Past Board Chair and President of Athletico

“I believe the BBBS programs will be more streamlined and mirror one another more closely, having one complete report analyzing the impact of our program will be a benefit for our company and our coworkers.”
-Sandy Pierantoni, CDW

“We have a lot of confidence that when we look back in 2-3 years, “we’ll see that our money was well spent.”
-John MacIntosh, SeaChange Partners

“This has been a great experience for the company. The mentors enjoy giving back to the community where they work, and have developed great relationships with their mentees. Their time at the school is a positive break from the work day and brings them back to the office energized.”
 - Mark Landolt, The Marketing Store

“Simply stated, the mentoring provided by Big Brothers Big Sisters improves the human condition for children in this country. It is a fact that the more someone cares about you, the more you care about yourself.”
 - Albert Wright, UPS Foundation

“By supporting Big Brothers Big Sisters, MetLife Foundation has an effective vehicle to reach young people, to improve their education outcomes and achievement, and also to connect more young people with caring adults.”
 - April Hawkins, MetLife Foundation

“Arby’s really believes in the mission of Big Brothers Big Sisters. Throughout the course of the Arby’s Charity Tour, over 15 million dollars has been raised, both through the proceeds of the golf tournaments and the charity auctions, and also through customer donations in our stores. But we need more donors. We need other corporations, and in particular we need individual donors.”
 - Sharron Barton, Arby’s

“I was introduced to Big Brothers Big Sisters at a personal level by a friend who decided to be a Big. We knew she’d help her Little Sister Silvera. What we didn’t know was that Nancy’s life would be completely changed by the experience. Isn’t it extraordinary that Big Brothers Big Sisters can do that for so many more people? 100 Women in Hedge Funds is so proud to be designated by Big Brothers Big Sisters as a Visionary Leader. Like Big Brothers Big Sisters, we put a great importance on accountability and our goal was to make a difference.”
 - Dana Hall, 100 Women in Hedge Funds
