Support Boys & Girls Clubs of the Great Lakes Bay Region
When you give, we jump for joy.
A donation to Boys & Girls Clubs is an investment in your community's future. Young people pay only $75 annually to attend the Clubs, but the benefit to them, their families, and society is far greater. Club members enjoy unfettered access to evidence-based programs, a welcoming environment, and trained adult mentors who truly care.
Studies show that for every $1 invested in Boys & Girls Clubs, an estimated $10 in benefits is returned to the community in the form of higher earnings and reduced medical costs among members. Collectively, Clubs spend $1.4 billion annually on operating costs, resulting in $13.8 billion in lifetime gains to society. By supporting your local Clubs, you support the development of youth, families, and your community as a whole.
As of 2018, more than 2,528 young people attend Boys & Girls Clubs each year. The average cost of supporting each member is roughly $500, and we depend largely on individual and corporate contributions to help us provide quality programs for our children and teens.
With your gift, you can help ensure that each child's Club experience is exactly as it should be: fun, engaging, educational, and positive. We know that every child deserves to feel safe and accepted, with adult role models who care about their well-being. This is what we want each young person to find when they walk through the doors of our Boys & Girls Clubs.
Please consider making a tax-deductible gift to support great futures for kids in Bay and Saginaw Counties!
