Ruth Ann Grayson served as director of Big Sisters of Greater Racine from 1989-2010, coordinating countless matches of Big and Little Sisters with love and care. She was also a Big Sister and a huge advocate for our enrichment program. Ruth Ann often used Big Sister of Greater Racine Enrichment funds to pay for swimming lessons for her Little Sisters. The Board established The Ruth Ann Grayson Fund specifically for enrichment activities for our Little Sisters in March of 2020.

Our Enrichment Program provides funding to allow Little Sisters access to extracurricular activities such as swimming lessons, camps, classes, and sports teams.

Parents’ and Guardians’ permission is required. And Big Sisters of Racine Inc. is not responsible for transportation.

Do you have a Little Sister who could benefit from enrichment camps, classes, sports, or activities? Request funds for Little Sisters to participate in extracurricular activities and help them explore, learn and develop their passions.
