Year of the Big logo

Join us to support our largest campaign ever — $100,000 to recruit, train, and support Bigs to meet our community’s increasing need.

During the Covid-19 pandemic, the lives of the Littles served by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Bath/Brunswick have become even more challenging as families face isolation, lack of childcare, job loss, school closures, inflation, and other factors.

Parents and guardians who are already stretched thin do not have the resources to expose their children to new, positive experiences while meeting their families’ most basic needs. BBBS programs are more critical than ever, and the number of parents connecting with our agency to help meet their kids’ needs is increasing!

BBBS of Bath/Brunswick continues to support well over 100 youth facing adversity each year, but the number of children currently waiting for a Big is growing. As a result of the pandemic, fewer adults are coming forward as potential volunteers – a challenge being faced at a national level by BBBS and our friends across the nonprofit sector. 

We have already raised $50,000 in matching funds so that every donation made to the 2022 Year of the BIG Fund will be matched dollar for dollar. 

Help us close the gap between kids waiting for a Big and our ability to find the right volunteer with whom to match them. Your gift will help us demonstrate to potential volunteers how vital their volunteerism is for the community’s youth—and the ways we ensure that their interactions with Littles are safe, productive, and enjoyable. To serve the children who need Bigs, we need to vigorously reach out to potential mentors. Your gift will help us to accomplish this.
