A Decade of Impact: Celebrating 10 Years of mentoring and the Big Give

Happy Anniversary
Time flies when you’re making a difference, and that’s certainly been the case for the Big Give San Antonio. As we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of this remarkable fundraising giving day, we’re reminded of the countless lives that have been touched and transformed by the power of community generosity. Since its inception in 2013, the Big Give has been a beacon of hope, uniting donors and nonprofits to create lasting change in the vibrant city of San Antonio.

Grant & Quentin
One of the most heartwarming stories to emerge from the first Big Give in 2013 involves a match that was made at Big Brothers Big Sisters—an organization dedicated to changing the lives of young people through mentorship. Meet Grant, a compassionate and driven individual, who decided to become a Big Brother in 2013. Little did he know that his decision would set the stage for a lasting bond that would span a decade and beyond.

Grant was paired with Quentin, a spirited and determined young man who was eager to navigate life’s challenges with a mentor by his side. Their connection was instant, and as they embarked on a journey together, neither of them could have predicted the profound impact they would have on each other’s lives.

Fast forward to the present day, and Grant and Quentin are still an inseparable duo, standing as a testament to the incredible potential of mentorship. Quentin, once a young boy with dreams and aspirations, has not only graduated from high school but has also successfully completed his college education. The trajectory of his life has been transformed, and it’s thanks in part to the unwavering support and guidance of his Big Brother, Grant.

A Single Act of Giving
This heartwarming story highlights the enduring power of philanthropy and the ripple effect that a single act of giving can create. When you make a donation to the Big Brothers Big Sisters agency or any of the other incredible nonprofits participating in the Big Give, you’re sowing the seeds of positive change that can yield results for years to come. Quentin’s journey from a Little Brother to a college graduate is a shining example of how your investment can lead to long-term, transformative outcomes.

A Celebration
The beauty of the Big Give San Antonio lies not only in the immediate impact it generates but also in its ability to create a legacy of change. It’s a celebration of unity, compassion, and the boundless potential that resides within a community that comes together for a common cause.

As we mark the 10-year milestone of the Big Give San Antonio, let’s take a moment to reflect on the countless stories like Grant and Quentin’s that have shaped the fabric of our city. Together, we’ve demonstrated that when we stand united, our collective efforts can create a wave of change that continues to touch lives, inspire dreams, and build a brighter future for all. So, here’s to a decade of giving, a decade of impact, and a future filled with even more stories of transformation and hope.
