Empowering Potential

Creating Friendships Changing Futures

Your generosity is changing lives! Because of you, we are able to match young children with adult mentors who provide guidance, structure and consistency to help them achieve their potential.  Our team works closely with each and every match to ensure they are reaching their goals and thriving.

Take Kris and Skye, this is a life-long friendship that has had many challenges along the way, and our team has been there every step of the way.  Because of your support, we have been able to impact hundreds of children in our community just like Kris and Skye.

Please know that every gift, no matter how big or small, has the ability to transform lives and transform an entire community.

 Thank you.

    Dedication In Memory of: Beccy Janis
    My donation is in response to Beccy Janis' commitment to BIGS. I think I already contributed in her memory following her passing, but if I didn't, this donation is given because of her love for BIGS. Perhaps I will be able to help with BIGS in Harbor Springs next year.
