Big Sister Karen and Little Sister Daisy are celebrating their 30th anniversary of their friendship! In honor of that milestone, Karen has made a generous donation of $10,000 to provide meaningful memories for Bigs and Littles throughout the region with the Daisy Fund.
The Daisy Fund provides unique one-to-one opportunities for matches that otherwise wouldn’t be possible. These opportunities should appeal to the interests and/or aspirations of a Little.
My Little is Interested In:
Consider Applying To:
|Sports||Attend a Tigers/Red Wings/Pistons Game|
|Art||Visit the Detroit Institute of Arts|
|Music/Performing Arts||Attend a performance in Lansing, Grand Rapids or Detroit|
|History||Visit the Henry Ford Museum|
|Science||Tour the Michigan Air Zoo|
These are just some examples. We encourage you to work with your Little to come up with a truly unique and special opportunity to share. Think BIG! Funding can be used to cover tickets, admission, shopping budgets, food, gas, etc.
Daisy Fund decisions will be made based on the following criteria:
- The activity relates to your Little’s interests/aspirations.
- The activity strengthens the one-to-one bond between you and your Little.
- The activity will be meaningful.
- The activity would be difficult for you and your Little to enjoy without funding.
Please also note that anyone who receives funding through the Daisy Fund must be willing to submit photos and/or videos of their experience that will be shared on Big Brothers Big Sisters posters, digital properties and social media accounts, and with the Daisy Fund donor. Additionally, you may be asked to submit a reflection of your experience.
Applying for the Daisy Fund is simple! Just fill out the form below. Or, if you would prefer, you can print out a paper copy and mail or email it to us. You can also pick up a copy at any of our offices. We strongly encourage Bigs and Littles to fill out this application together.
Once completed, please allow 4-8 weeks for our selection committee to review your application and make their decision. We will make every effort to be time sensitive if you are applying for an event that occurs on a specific date. Funding decisions are based on the criteria listed above, and remaining available funds. All applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-serve basis, so don’t wait!
