At Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Ocean State, we're dedicated to providing children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever. An easy way to double your contribution is through employee giving programs.

Many corporations match employee donations to our organization.

If you volunteer with us, your employer may also provide us with a grant as a way to recognize your ongoing support.
