Changing the way children grow up in Santa Cruz County



Make A Match Campaign

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Santa Cruz County matches children with volunteer mentors. We call this “making a match.” We invite you to Make A Match. $3,500 is the cost to match a child and fund ongoing professional mentoring support for one year. Your Make A Match gift contributes to this goal.

One caring mentor can change the course of a child’s future!

Bowl for Kids’ Sake

April 28 & 29, 2018

Bowl For Kids’ Sake is Big Brothers Big Sisters’ largest annual fundraising event. It is a fun way to raise money and make a difference in a child’s life. It doesn’t cost you to bowl or rent shoes, you just ask people to sponsor you.

The 2018 Bowl For Kids’ Sake fundraising campaign starts in April when you form your team and start collecting pledges. It culminates with the bowling event on April 28th & 29th at the Boardwalk Bowl in Santa Cruz.

2017 Regatta was a smashing success!

On August 13th the Santa Cruz Yacht Club & Santa Cruz community helped us raise $69,400!

Thank you Santa Cruz!!  The support was tremendous from: the fantastic sponsors; the business community who donated items for our Silent Auction or raffle; the sailors who paid to take part in the race; Island Breeze who provided the live music and kept us dancing; and Fresh Prep Kitchens who served a delicious dinner.  While it is a cliche, we absolutely could not have done it without any of you.   View the race results and sponsors’ list here.
