Big Brothers Big Sisters of Missoula needs your help today to keep our doors open and continue our legacy of defending the potential of our most important asset – our children. We’ve reached a critical budget shortfall due to unexpected changes in funding. Over the last two years, our annual state, federal, and private grants were cut by $120,000. We have done everything in our power to deal with the loss of a third of our annual budget, including reducing staff, but we are still coming up short. Our goal is to raise one year’s operating expenses as soon as possible so that we can fully develop and adapt our new funding model.
Every child has the potential to change the world. Big Brothers Big Sisters is here to defend that potential, to empower, ignite and inspire children to unlock their unlimited potential. Our amazing mentors are a force for change to these children by being that extra someone in their corner, someone to encourage and provide friendship and guidance when these children would otherwise not have that level of support. Our program has changed the lives of over 15,000 children and their families in our community. We currently have 100 children that are matched in our program, with more than 80 children waiting to be matched.
Stand with us and be a force for change by donating today. With your help, we can continue defending the potential of our community's children now and for years to come.
