It’s not just a donation. It’s an investment in a child’s future.

Annual Fund

The Big Brothers Big Sisters of Long Island Annual Fund helps to increase the number of children receiving our mentoring service and defrays the costs associated with recruiting, screening, and professionally training the volunteers who are matched with children in our community-based and site-based mentoring programs.

Every day, we work tirelessly to change the perspectives of children and give them an opportunity to achieve great things. But without donations, we could not offer our mentoring programs. In order to meet the ambitious service goals that benefit our youth, and ultimately the future of our community, we must develop reliable sources of steadily growing contributions sufficient to meet the steadily rising costs of services.

By donating to the Annual Fund, you join our cause and directly support children in your community. No matter how little or big the amount, your donation will directly help in changing the lives of these young people for the better, forever.

Please take a few moments to read our Annual Fund brochure. There are many ways you can support our mission, and all donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Join the Big Brothers Big Sisters family, MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN TOMORROW TODAY.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Long Island can accept cars, trucks, SUVs, motor homes, boats, airplanes, etc. The Cars for Kids' Sake program is a national program that helps local Big Brothers Big Sisters agencies raise funds to support their mission.

The process for donating a vehicle is simple and hassle-free. Just call us toll-free at 800.710.9145. You will be asked to describe the condition of your unwanted vehicle (remember, it doesn’t need to run) and to provide the current mileage. You’ll also be asked to identify the make, model, and vehicle identification number (VIN). Then we’ll arrange a convenient time for pickup. It’s that easy.

Your donated vehicle will later be sold at a dealers-only auction or to a licensed recycler. With all costs deducted, we consistently receive between 65% and 80% of the gross sale price.

Donated vehicles qualify as charitable gifts and may be eligible for tax deduction. See IRS Publication 526 or visit http://www.irs.gov/publications/p526/ar01.html for information on claiming this and other charitable deductions on your annual tax return.
