TOGETHER, WE ARE DEFENDERS OF POTENTIAL.

10 FOR $10 FUNDRAISER

REGISTER HERE

Each October, the 10 for $10 campaign is a chance to spread our mission that strong mentors impact the lives of children and tighten the threads of our community. For 10 days, Defenders (fundraisers) across the region come together to raise 10, $10 donations. A small ask but – with a large group of supporters – a BIG outcome.

This year has shown the fragility of our communities. It has shown the less we know about one another, the more likely we are to drift apart. At Big Brothers Big Sisters, we’ve always known that we have the power to bridge that divide. We’ve always known that the “Big and Little” relationship fosters the exchange of different worldviews, unlocks the potential that is inherent in all young people, and motivates a strong adult to defend it. We’ve always known that this simple idea puts us at the roots of the community, in a position to make an impact.

 

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass has been serving the youth of Central Kentucky since 1957. We’ve served thousands of kids over the last six decades, but there are many more who are still waiting for someone to stand in their corner - and over 200 who are waiting for a Big right here in Central Kentucky.

We don’t create potential… we inspire it; we empower it; we ignite it – and we couldn’t do it without YOU. We are not saviors, we are allies – each and every one of us. Together, we clear a path to their biggest possible futures. Together, we are Defenders of Potential.

Learn how you can defend a child's potential.

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Bluegrass, young males of color make up more than half of our waiting list, many of whom have been waiting for a Big Brother for more than two years. They come to us with the hopes of finding a mentor who will inspire them to reach beyond their adversity.
