Big Brothers Big Sisters of WNC

Big Brothers Big Sisters is working to ensure every child in WNC has an enjoyable, long-term relationship with a caring adult who believes in them and sees their potential. We select and match mentors with children facing adversity and provide ongoing activities, training, and support services for both families and volunteers to foster a successful match relationship and a lasting connection.

With their Big, Littles gain a role model, a friend, and access to new experiences through which they build higher aspirations for their lives. These relationships provide them with the support they need to achieve academic improvement, growth in self-confidence and development of life skills, and reward mentors with the experience of being an integral part of that young person’s success.

YMCA of Greenville Foundation

When you give to the YMCA of Greenville Foundation, your support impacts lives long after your gift is made. A percentage of the investment income from the Endowment Fund is used to help sustain our commitment to healthy living, youth development, and social responsibility by supplementing the Y’s projects, programs, and services.  We are specifically supporting the Tommy Sinn, II Fund for Youth Programs and Exercise is Medicine Greenville. Tommy found his own team as an adult when he joined the Poets and Pirates group at the Caine Halter YMCA. These men who shared more than 10,000 miles with Tommy have run for fun, friendship, exercise and now for Tommy’s legacy. Tommy sparked a movement, 40Men4Change, encouraging everyone to “Go Play”, and it is his legacy that will continue to encourage everyone to go play regardless of ability to pay.
