CEO Announcement: MacKenzie Scott Gift to BBBSA

Dear Friends,

We have BIG news to share.

We are pleased to announce that Big Brothers Big Sisters of America and 38 BBBS agencies across the country were chosen by MacKenzie Scott to receive a one-time gift that collectively totals $122.6 million! This unprecedented investment is the largest donation from a single individual in the organization’s history.

This gift supports Big Brothers Big Sisters’ work to ensure that young people have access to powerful mentoring experiences that provide them with a plan for their future and a mentor whose impact lasts a lifetime. Together, we are on a bold path to transform and shift how people think about mentoring.

Although Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas was not included in this round of funding from MacKenzie Scott, our work in Central Texas remains vital to so many kids who need us.

If you would like to join the movement to support kids in our community, you can make a donation to our organization HERE.

MacKenzie Scott’s gift serves as a powerful testament to the power, influence, and impact of Big Brothers Big Sisters’ work nationwide. We celebrate this award for our collective movement and for the many people whose lives will be touched by this generous support. We also hope that this historic moment inspires more people to consider supporting our mission.

Working in communities across the country, and working together, we can positively influence the trajectory of young people’s lives, and our own. Together, we can build a better future for all.

Thank you for your ongoing involvement with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Texas, and thank you for supporting youth and families in our community, and across the country.

There is strength and power in our collective impact. We are #BetterTogether.
