3. Become a Match Maker
You can make a big impact for the kids we serve by simply donating through our Match Makers program. Match Makers is a monthly giving program where you can give $25, $35, $50, or more each month. As a Match Maker, you'll receive a monthly story about a match we were able to make because of your generous donation. You can feel good knowing that your donation will help cover the costs to introduce a new waiting Little to their Big every month!
