The average annual cost to establish and maintain each professionally supervised Big/Little match relationship is $2,000. As a donor-supported volunteer organization, we rely on our generous supporters to help fuel the power to change the lives of these boys and girls.

Ensure a match is supported for one year

$100 supports the cost of our volunteer outreach and recruitment efforts to help us attract new mentors for children in need.

$250 funds the cost of one comprehensive background screening for a potential volunteer.

$1,000 covers college readiness, tours, SAT and ACT prep for our 10th and 11th grade Littles.

$2,000 allows you to adopt a match by underwriting the cost to establish and maintain this professionally supervised relationship for one year.


Here’s your chance to make a real impact on the lives of kids in need of a mentor in New York City. All it takes is one phone call, one check, or one click online.
