About This Campaign

DEFEND WITH ME

We are a team of Big Brothers and Big Sisters throughout Greater Cincinnati who want to celebrate the success of our matches BY MAKING NEW MATCHES!! We’re asking our friends, family and co-workers to each donate at least $50 (more is appreciated!!) to help get kids like those pictured off the waiting list and matched with a mentor.

None of us are fundraising pros so we’re grateful for any donations!! Every $1,200 raised covers the cost of Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati making one new match! It would be amazing if every Big Brother or Big Sister in this campaign could raise enough money to make a new match!!

Together, we are all Defenders of Potential !!

TOGETHER, WE ARE DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL!

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati

Campaign to Support Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Cincinnati

We create life-changing friendships by matching adult mentors with  at-risk Tri-State children in need of positive role models.  We partner with parents and guardians, volunteers and others in the community, and hold ourselves accountable for each child in our program. Statistics show these Little Brothers and Sisters have higher aspirations, greater confidence, do better in school and avoid risky behaviors.
