What costs should I budget for?

  • Big Brothers Big Sisters of America (BBBSA) estimates that it costs an average of $1,000 per year to support a mentoring a match.
  • Estimated costs for program implementation should be inclusive of training, staffing, supplies, program marketing and recruitment, child abuse clearances, and costs associated with hosting social events and promoting activities for the matches.
  • Sites funded by the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD) should plan in advance to fulfill the fidelity and reporting requirements of their grant and to budget for the fees to be paid to BBBS National for these purposes.
  • Pennsylvania funded sites are also expected to produce an outcomes report in the third quarter of the second year of funding. At the site’s discretion, funding may be identified to hire an external evaluator.
