Ways to Donate
By becoming a MatchMaker, you're investing in the future of a child and the future of your community. Our professional staff members support each match all year. Your investment helps our volunteers make a big impact in the lives of their Littles and break the cycle of violence and poverty in our community.
By making a monthly contribution you will be helping introduce a waiting Little Brother or Sister to their Big every month. Monthly contributions will be automatically deducted from your debit or credit card. In return we will send you stories on the life-changing friendships you are creating every month!
Each year we ask businesses and friends to support the work we do every day matching Bigs and Littles. Look for our newsletters and Annual Report for opportunities to support us through annual giving. Any amount accepted. It costs about $85 per month to support each match.
We currently have several grants to serve children at risk, as well as children who have an incarcerated parent and are at risk of entering the juvenile justice system. These grants require us to generate significant matching funds. You can help us greatly through a gift to our Annual Fund.
The fund was established in mid-2009 to provide long-term stability for our Macon County office. The fund is managed by the Community Foundation of Decatur/Macon County. As of December 2012 the fund reached our goal of $100,000.
United Way now requires all agencies seeking United Way funding to address the issue of reserve funds. Our goal is to grow this fund to six figures and then begin to use part of the earnings to supplement our annual budgets. Principal remains invested for the future… $100 and up. This is a great way to help if you have a large gift in mind.
