"Most of my friends think that athletes and movie stars are their heroes. Not me. My real life hero is my Big Brother, Bill."
- Little brother, Danlin

Big Brother Bill and Little Brother Danlin were interviewed, matched and received ongoing resources from professional Big Brothers Big Sisters staff.

Generous donors like you helped make this friendship possible, and gave Danlin a chance to go to college.



Big Brothers Big Sisters needs YOU!

Big Brothers Big Sisters Of The Desert

Big Brothers Big Sisters receives 100% of our funding from private donations. Support from individuals like you is the only way we can provide mentors for children in your community. And we know they need them. It isn't easy being a kid these days. Children need a caring adult to be a mentor and a friend- someone they can talk to, have fun with, and learn from.

Research shows that our mentoring works. Kids with a Big Brother or Big Sister show real differences in their personal and academic lives.

They are:

  • More confident in their schoolwork performance
  • Able to get along better with their families
  • 52% less likely to skip school

Your donation will be used to:

  • Help recruit new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers
  • Cover the costs of background checks and insurance, while ensuring trained professionals match children to caring and responsible Bigs
  • Offer one-on-one, ongoing supervision and support for every match
  • Provide cultural and social activities to enrich the opportunities for children

Your donation goes to your community. When you make a gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Desert, you directly support children in the Coachella Valley.

No matter how much you give, your contribution will improve the lives of young people in your community. Your donation will help them meet the challenges of growing up into happy, confident young adults.
