Dear Hupy and Abraham,

I am proud to announce – for the second year in a row – Big Brothers Big Sisters of America has awarded our agency with its highest honor, the Pinnacle Award. As a generous supporter of Big Brother Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee, you contributed to this achievement, and we share this award with you.

Big Brothers Big Sisters of America has been committed to measurable outcomes for over 15 years. They have invested in the development of scientific evaluation tools and up-to-date research on positive youth development. They hold every agency affiliate across the country accountable for meeting national program standards and fiscal minimums to create a sustainable nationwide network of premiere one-to-one youth mentoring programs.

On a monthly basis, our national office monitors and evaluates agency data and program performance of each affiliate across the country. We also monitor ourselves, and affiliates monitor each other to identify and share best practices and continuously learn from one another.

After thorough evaluation of nationwide data, Big Brothers Big Sisters of America identifies the top performing agencies and acknowledges them at the national conference in June. Pinnacle Award winning agencies are recognized for delivering “best-in-class” non-profit performance. This year, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee was one of seven agencies – of over 300 across the country – to receive the Pinnacle Award, and one of only two to receive it for two consecutive years.

Your investment in our agency is making a meaningful difference in the lives of children and families in Milwaukee and Waukesha counties. The Pinnacle Award is a true reflection of our collective commitment to delivering positive outcomes to youth facing adversity. We hope you will continue to support us as we empower children to test their limits, discover who they are and what they are capable of, and achieve long-term success in life. Thank You.
