Thank you for starting great futures in 2018!
When you make a donation to the Boys & Girls Club, your gift makes a big impact on local families. We’d like to show you the numbers on how you’ve made a difference in 2018.
559 scholarships were given to reduce children’s weekly fees by 50%, making sure families pay only what they can afford.
351 extremely low income children attended the Oak View Branch for free.
355 low-income English language learner children and parents attended the Twilight Education Project for free.
That’s 1,265 children’s lives you changed for the better through the Club’s free programs and scholarships. Just as important to our community, you are helping more than just the kids. 82% of parents in the Club’s scholarship program report that the scholarship program is what makes it possible for them to work at their current job. That makes our whole community stronger by building our workforce, helping families stay off public assistance, and giving parents a hand up when they need it most to lift themselves out of poverty and make a better life for their kids. Thank you!
A single dad named Ruben whose daughters participate in our scholarship program says, "The Club is a huge blessing. The Club actually cares about me. They relieve a lot of stress for me and my girls love it. But, I couldn’t do it without the scholarship program. Because of donors like you, the Club gives me 50% off and that’s something I can manage. It makes me heart so happy to know my girls are in a place they love every day. Thank you for all that you do to help people like me find a better life."
Thank you for helping change lives for the better in 2018!
