About Match Makers

Match Makers make a difference.

Research shows the positive impact of mentoring on the lives of children matched with a mentor by Big Brothers Big Sisters: 96.6 percent have improved self-confidence and 95.2 percent performed better in school.

There are more than 10,000 children in Northeast Indiana living in this situation! Without your support these children are more likely to go down the wrong path and end up another statistic. You might not be able to invest the time by being a mentor (or you may just want to do more) but by being a Match Maker you can change a child’s life! Your gift will match an at-risk child with a professionally screened and evaluated adult mentor in a life- changing friendship. By simply introducing an adult mentor into the life of a child, they are more likely to:

  • Avoid drugs, alcohol and the juvenile justice system
  • Improve relationships with their family, peers and most importantly- themselves
  • Improve in school

Match Makers is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Indiana's monthly giving program. By making a monthly contribution you will be helping introduce a waiting Little Brother or Little Sister to their Big each and every month. Monthly contributions of $25, $35, $50, or an amount of your choice will be automatically deducted from your debit or credit card each month. We will send you monthly stories on the friendships you are creating.

Thank you for considering investing in the children of northeast Indiana and their futures.
