Fundraising is a crucial force that allows our agency to flourish. 100% of funds collected stay within our community. We currently serve about 200 children in Warren, Washington and northern Saratoga Counties. On average, it costs $1,000 per year to support one match. Proceeds raised from special events assist in recruiting new Big Brother and Big Sister volunteers and help defrays the cost of background checks and insurance. Funds are also used to provide cultural and social activities monthly that help enrich the lives of the children served. By making a donation, golfing, bowling or making a pledge, you have become a part of making a difference in the life of a child. Thank you!
