BGCA Is Accepting Online Donations
If you or your Association would like to make a monetary contribution to the Boys and Girls Club of America, you can do so by clicking the button below. Please note that making a monetary donation does not meet your Community Outreach requirements, but does make a difference in the lives of your local Club Kids. By making an online donation through this site, NAR and BGCA will be able to track your Association’s contribution to your local club.
Donations that exceed $1,000, from an individual member or money collected via a fundraiser, should be made through the national BGCA organization and not handed directly to the local Club. Prior to making your donation, contact NAR at firstname.lastname@example.org AND Beatrice Woody, National Director of Account Strategy and Development at BGCA, at email@example.com. We will make sure your donation is properly distributed to the Club of your choice through the appropriate channels.
