Big Brothers Big Sisters…Defenders Of Potential!

Big Brothers Big Sisters (BBBS) provides one-to-one mentors for children facing adversity in their personal, social, and academic lives. Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever! Our measurable goals are focused in areas that have a positive impact in a child’s life: increased self-confidence, improved academic performance, increased interest in learning, and stronger, positive relationships with humankind.


In fact, we have over 30 children waitlisted right now.  That’s where YOU come in. Our cost to ensure child safety, through supervision, monitoring, background checks and ongoing match support is over $1200 annually.  By sponsoring a “Little” at your chosen contribution amount (*50% of which qualifies for a direct tax deduction*) you can be a “defender of potential” for at risk youth.  

There are many ways to donate to Big Brothers Big Sisters of SW CO, you can DONATE ONLINE HERE,  send a check, or by making gifts in the form of stocks, bonds, and mutual funds.  Whichever way you choose, you’ll be helping to make a positive impact on the kids in our community.  

Thank you so much on behalf of the Littles of Southwest Colorado.
