Create a legacy that lasts! After you have considered your family and your children, would you consider leaving a gift to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County in your estate planning? 

Leave a Legacy

As one of the country's most effective mentoring programs helping young people change their lives for the better, Big Brothers Big Sisters has been serving youth in Ocean County for over 20 years. A gift that transforms our organization or one of our mentoring programs is a wonderful way to ensure that we continue offering hope for a better life to children facing adversity. A charitable bequest is an excellent way to create a lasting legacy in our community.

Your gift may be in the form of cash, securities, real estate, or other property. You may designate that Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County is to receive a state amount or percentage of your estate, particular assets, or the remainder of your estate after providing for your heirs. You may also add Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ocean County as the beneficiary on your 401K, IRA, and life insurance policies.

If you would like more information on this program or have questions please call Madalaine Rice at 732-505-3400 x1 or email her at mrice@bbbsoc.org

Donating pays dividends

Research shows that our mentoring works. Children with a Big Brother or Big Sister show real differences in their personal and academic lives. They are more confident in their schoolwork performance, they get along better with their families and they’re 52% less likely to skip school.1


Your support goes far

Your financial support helps us provide our programs and services nationally and in your local community—so we can develop more college grads, community leaders and entrepreneurs.

Roughly 92% of every dollar you give goes directly to making and supporting matches between Littles and Bigs.
