Our Partners

Community of Collaborators

Big Sister Boston is able to offer the depth of programs and activities that we do thanks to our partnerships throughout Greater Boston. From major funders, to academic institutions, to community organizations, we are proud to be supported by a community of partners who are invested in girls.

“I am awed by how much Big Sister is able to accomplish. Their program changes girls’ lives and they are exceptional at keeping organizations, partners, and benefactors informed and engaged.”

-Neil McCullagh, Director of the Corcoran Center for Real Estate and Urban Action; Executive Director, The American City Coalition

Featured Partner

Each year we recognize a Partner of the Year: a business, community organization, or civic entity who has collaborated with us in varied and unique ways to invest in Greater Boston’s girls.

The Ad Club

The Ad Club, the trade association for marketing, advertising and communications in New England, was founded in part to help people working in those sectors build relationships and learn from each other. As such, it was a natural partner for Big Sister Boston. Ad Club President Kathy Kiely has been supporting our work with the girls and women of Greater Boston since 2010.
