It’s Not Just a Donation. It’s an Investment in Their Future.


Why Give to BBBS Lincoln

When you donate online to Big Brothers Big Sisters Lincoln, you join our cause and directly support youth in Lincoln. No matter how little or big the amount, donating can start making a difference in the lives of young people around you. At BBBS Lincoln, we appreciate all supporters, from donors to volunteers to advocates. Your donations help us make and sustain matches between Bigs and Littles - and instantly make you a part of our family.

By donating to our organization, you join our mission of positively affecting young people in your community. Every day, we work tirelessly to change children's perspectives, allowing them to achieve great things. But without donations, we couldn't offer our mentoring services.

Donating Pays Dividends

Research shows that our mentoring works. Youths with a Big Brother or Big Sister show fundamental differences in their personal and academic lives. They are more confident in their schoolwork performance, get along better with their families, and are less likely to skip school.

Your Support Goes Far

Your financial support helps us provide our programs and services nationally and in your local community to develop more college grads, community leaders, and entrepreneurs. Here are a handful of ways that your assistance can benefit our program:

  • Recruiting new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
  • Covering the costs of background checks while ensuring trained professionals match Littles to responsible Bigs
  • Enabling ongoing supervision and relationship support for every Big, Little, and Little's family
  • Providing cultural and social activities to enrich opportunities for children

Big Brothers Big Sisters Lincoln will not share or sell a donor's personal information with anyone else nor send donor mailings on behalf of other organizations.
