This year, we are asking for a #BIGgift, the gift of friendship so a child can be given a mentor for friendship, support and guidance.

Please donate and/or join us in asking for a #BIGgift instead of conventional holiday gifts. You can create your own fundraising page here and help a child.

We have accomplished so much in our first 50 years, but the need to do more never ends; in fact, there are more children in need of our services than ever before. Which is why Big Brothers Big Sisters of Winnipeg has become a leader in program innovation; now providing one of the most diverse mentoring menus in the country.

Our strategy is rooted in the fundamental belief that all children deserve to have the nurturing, playful, and growth-enhancing relationships they require to thrive; and our belief a community is enhanced through the improved well-being and cohesiveness these relationships provide.  It is also backed by the science of brain development and evidence of an $18 to $1 social return on investment.  We grow your donation by helping more youth grow.

We rely on the generous support of community to provide mentoring services to over 700 children and youth each year.  The average cost to match and support a volunteer mentor with a child is $1,500 a year.  So, every donation can make the difference.  Please give generously.

Every $120 ($10 monthly) provides game & craft activities for Big Brothers Big Sisters' in-school program.

Every $300 ($25 monthly) provides coaching & support for a match.

Every $600 ($50 monthly) sponsors a group activity for our Littles.

Every $1500 ($125 monthly) enables another child to have a Big Brother or Sister!

Give the chance to change a child's life. Donate and/or ask for a #BIGgift today.
