Just for Bigs!

Support BBBSBA

Congratulations on becoming a Big and joining our network of like-minded volunteers giving back to the Bay Area community. You are the heart and soul of our program, and the life-changing work of Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bay Area starts with you!

Integral to your work as a Big Brother or Big Sister is the professional support you receive from the BBBSBA program staff, which is in turn supported by generous donors throughout our community.

While we welcome our volunteers to also become financial supporters, there are other ways you can help.

How you can help: In the workplace

Dollars for Doers/ Matching Gifts
Some companies offer financial matching gifts in honor of their employees’ volunteer time, including the time you spend with your Little. Many also match employees’ charitable gifts, doubling the impact of your donation. Visit www.bbbsba.org/MatchingGifts to see if your employer offers these benefits.

Grants, Foundations, and Other Awards
Your company may have a well-established foundation or a more informal employee-directed grant program – whichever is the case, there is no better reference than an in-house Big who can champion our cause. Please let us know how your company supports the organizations that are important to their employees.

Information Session
Do you think your co-workers would be interested in learning about the great work of BBBSBA, and how they can become a part of our network of Bigs, advocates and donors? We would love to come to your workplace (in person or by webinar) and meet prospective volunteers, answer questions, and showcase the life-changing work our Bigs do.
