New Partner Spotlight: Big Brothers Big Sisters of America
Since its founding in 1904, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (Big Brothers Big Sisters) has operated under the belief that inherent in every child is incredible potential. As the nation’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, Big Brothers Big Sisters makes meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”) ages 5 through young adulthood in communities across the country. Through these one-on-one mentoring relationships, Big Brothers Big Sisters empowers every kid on the path to graduate with a plan for their future and a mentor whose impact lasts a lifetime.
Poised for significant growth, Big Brothers Big Sisters is partnering with Orr Group to assess its fundraising potential and to provide the development capacity and leadership needed for the organization to achieve its short- and long-term revenue goals. Orr Group is approaching this work in multiple phases, starting with a development assessment to evaluate Big Brothers Big Sisters’ fundraising infrastructure, capacity, and assets and designing a comprehensive, network-wide fundraising strategy that will lay the groundwork for ongoing philanthropy over the next several years. In conjunction with the assessment, the Orr Group team is helping to strategically guide the transformation and development of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ Board of Directors and Affinity Groups. Using what we learn during our assessment, we will begin working alongside Big Brothers Big Sisters as an embedded partner to provide outsourced project management and development support to manage and drive its year-end giving campaign and strengthen its internal development capacity to grow its fundraising operations.
Orr Group is honored to partner with Big Brothers Big Sisters of America to support its mission of helping children realize their potential and build their futures.
