Donating to Big Buddy

Donations are the life blood of Big Buddy. With only 9% of our funding coming from Government, we depend on the generosity of philanthropic trusts, sponsors and other funders - and the public - to support our mentoring programme. As a registered charity, our accounts are audited annually and we are fiscally conservative. You know when you are giving to Big Buddy your donation will be carefully spent directly on the work of matching fatherless boys with mentors.

We are registered with the Charities Commission. Charity Number CC22447
