What is a Match Maker?

Match Makers are monthly donors whose ongoing donations help us create life-changing friendships by "matching" children (Littles) and mentors (Bigs). Not everyone has the time to be a Big Brother or a Big Sister, but anyone can be a Match Maker! ​​

What do Match Makers do?

Each time Big Brothers Big Sisters of Dane County pairs a child with a mentor, we start something incredible: a one-to-one relationship built on trust and friendship that can blossom into a future of unlimited potential. We call these pairs "Matches." By becoming a Match Maker, your monthly sponsorship contributes to a lifetime of friendship, support, and happiness for each Match. 

How does it work?

Select an amount of your choice that will be automatically and securely deducted from your debit or credit card each month. You'll receive monthly updates about the Matches you are supporting. We make the process as easy and painless as possible!

Why should I become a Match Maker?

Match Makers tell us that when they view their charitable giving relative to other monthly expenses, it really puts things in the right perspective. Being a Match Maker is the easiest way to make a huge difference for a child in need of additional support.
