Sustainer's Circle

The Power of Commitment

At Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Atlanta (BBBSMA), we understand the power of long-term relationships. Our volunteer Big Brothers and Big Sisters make a huge commitment to our program, donating countless hours of their time to children facing adversity in our community. Although we initially ask our volunteers for a 12-month commitment, our average Big/Little match lasts for more than 40 months. The results are truly life changing.

Your Commitment

Our new program, the Sustainer’s Circle, asks donors to honor our volunteers and children by making an ongoing monthly gift in support of our program. It’s easy, flexible and convenient, and you can change or cancel your donation at any time. By not having to send additional mailings, the Sustainers Program also saves BBBSMA money that can be used for our programs.

How Does the Sustainer’s Circle Work?

You may be able to make a larger gift to BBBSMA than you originally thought possible since you will divide your gift into 12 monthly installments.

A monthly contribution is charged to your credit or debit card each month. Charges will appear on your monthly statement.Each January, you will receive a summary of your previous year gifts for tax purposes. You can decide on the size of the gift you want to make, and you can change or stop that gift at any time.

What do you receive as a Sustainer’s Circle member?

  1. A monthly email newsletter just for the Sustainer’s Circle, sharing the impact of your gift.

  2. You and a guest are invited to an annual Sustainer’s Circle event, where you can meet agency leadership and program participants and network with other Sustainers.
