Our partners make it possible

We receive bi-partisan supportNo matter who’s in the Oval Office, we’ve counted on funding from the federal government. And they’ve been kind enough to deliver.

Government Partners

Federal, state and local government partnerships enable Big Brothers Big Sisters to make significant impact in rural and urban centers within our service area.   We have been awarded competitive grants over the years that are often funded for anywhere from 1 to 3 years.  Most funding sources are awarded with "local financial match" and match growth requirements.  Local match means BBBSMV needs to raise financial support locally to match the amount recieved from the grant. 

We are obligated to achieve a certain level of impact within the targeted population or community the grant is intended to serve.   Of course, as a recipient of government funds, we also comply with the stringent accounting and reporting procedures and requirements.  Most grants that we receive is in the form of a reimbursement for services.  All of our programs are open to children, families, and schools at no cost.
