We are excited to announce the launch of our 24K for 2024 appeal campaign; An initiative dedicated to raising $24,000 to support a new mentor coordinator to increase organization’s capacity to match more tamariki. At Big Brothers Big Sisters Auckland, we believe in the power of mentorship to change lives, and with your help, we can make a significant impact on our community. With over 100 mentee’s on the waitlist, your donation will help get children off the waitlist, and into a brighter future.

Why 24K for 2024?

Each dollar raised during this campaign will directly fund the recruitment, training, and support of mentors who will be matched with children in need of guidance, encouragement, and a positive role model in their life. Our goal is to ensure that more vulnerable tamariki in Auckland have the opportunity to experience the transformative effects of having a Big Brother or Big Sister.

With over 100 children on our waitlist, we are committed to increasing our capability and addressing the need for mentors. As a small team, we urgently need donations to hire another Mentor Coordinator, like our dedicated Leonie, who is currently at full capacity managing our existing matches. The critical time spent to coordinate each match comes at a cost, and with each donation, we can uplift and support a child’s life with mentoring.

The Impact of Your Support

Your generosity will have a profound impact on the lives of young people like Xoniqe and Kendrik, who, thanks to their mentors, have developed greater self-confidence, improved self-esteem, and a brighter outlook on their futures. Here are just a few ways your donation can make a difference:

  • $25 supports a match with an activity out in the community.
  • $40 covers the intake process for a child.
  • $75 provides a family with social support from a professional for a month.
  • $150 supports a match and their whanau for an entire month.
  • $2,400: Fully supports one mentor-mentee match for an entire year, covering all associated costs.
  • $24,000: Will bring on another Mentor Coordinator and increase our capacity to match more tamariki.
