About Match Makers

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Greater Pittsburgh has been providing children facing adversity in Allegheny, Washington and Greene counties with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships for close to 50 years.  Serving over 1,200 children annually, BBBS of Greater Pittsburgh has earned national recognition for program quality and organizational excellence.

Over 200 children are still waiting for a Big Brother or a Big Sister – you can help end their wait and make a BIG impact.  It might not be the right time to volunteer but you can still be a part of a match, you can be a Match Maker and help change a child’s life for the better, forever.  Your gift will help match a child with a professionally screened and evaluated adult mentor in a life- changing friendship.

By 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 a monthly giving opportunity. 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 a welcome gift and then quarterly you will receive stories of the new friendships you helping to create. 

Thank you for Starting Something BIG for the children and families of the Greater Pittsburgh region.
