People often wonder why a volunteer based organization needs funding at all. The reason is simple. Matching children with positive adult role models requires screening, training, and monitoring. Given our vision is to put a mentor in the life of
every child who needs one, funding plays an ever important role in our
success as well as the development of children in our community.
Unlike many other non-profit organizations, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Victoria raises over 65% of its own operating costs through Clothing Donations. Through a partnership with Value Village, we are able to generate revenue with the clothing YOU donate to us. With such a large portion of our funding coming through our Clothing Donations, we strongly encourage you to get involved and help our kids get matched with mentors!
