About Match Makers

Match Makers make a difference.

Research shows mentoring has a positive impact on the lives of children matched with a mentor by Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa: 98 percent of these children reported no alcohol or drug abuse and 91percent are confident they will finish high school.

But there are many more children in need of a mentor! Without your support, many children in central Iowa will remain without a mentor and engage in risky behavior patterns. You might not be able to invest the time by being a mentor (or you may just want to do more) but by being a Match Maker you can change a child’s life! Your monthly gift will match an at-risk child with a professionally screened and evaluated adult mentor in a life- changing friendship. By simply introducing an adult mentor into the life of a child, they are more likely to:

  • Avoid drugs, alcohol and the juvenile justice system
  • Improve relationships with their family, peers and most importantly- themselves
  • Improve in school

Match Makers is Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Iowa's monthly giving program. By making a monthly contribution you will be helping introduce a waiting Little Brother or Little Sister to their Big each and every month. Monthly contributions of $25, $35, $50, or an amount of your choice will be automatically deducted from your debit or credit card each month. We will send you monthly stories on the friendships you are creating.

Thank you for considering investing in the children of central Iowa and their futures.
