Hello from the Boys and Girls Club of the Capital Area!  We hope this letter finds you well. Our annual Great Futures Campaign is one of our most important fundraisers of the year with a goal of $150,000.  So much of what we do for kids in our community in 2024 depends on the money we raise now.

When youth arrive at the Boys and Girls Club of the Capital Area, after school or in the summer, they eat a quick snack before participating in programs and activities with their friends.  All of the activities and programs focus on at least one of our three priority outcomes:

  • Academic Success:  programs like 21st Century, homework help, and a variety of  STEAM projects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math)
  • Character and Leadership:  programs like Torch Club, team games and activities
  • Healthy Lifestyles:  programs like Garden Club, gym games, and Girls on the Run

With your help in 2023, the Boys and Girls Club of the Capital Area:

  • Served nearly 500 youth—an average of 160 kids per day elementary and middle school
  • Led over 135 youth in the Garden Club—planting, weeding, picking and enjoying veggies
  • Planning a gym project remodel
  • Provided opportunities for kids to participate in Engineering Club, Book Club, Lego Club, Garden Club, Photography Club & Art Club

Serving youth who need us most would not be possible without YOU and your heart for our communities’ youth.  THANK YOU for being a loyal partner in our mission to build GREAT FUTURES!
