Campaign engages community

Campaign engages community

The Club’s newly launched Great Futures campaign needs you, your dry cleaner, your favorite sandwich shop — and every other local business –to help raise $500,000. The funds ensure we can provide the quality programs and services to our more than 9,000 youth and their families in the community.

Retailers are being asked to put BGCOP posters in their windows and brochures on their counters to show their support of the Club and its efforts.

Recently, Channel Islands Family Dental Office pledged to donate 100 percent of every new patient’s regular cleaning in 2013 to the Club. DMI Ready Mix Concrete proudly displays the BGCOP logo on one of its ready mix concrete trucks and donates a portion of the revenue to the Club from each job the truck is used.

The campaign is vital because it costs $500 per child to provide programs, and families pay just $20 per year for a child to become a member of the Club.

By supporting Club programs, you can help neighborhood children grow up to graduate from high school and achieve self-sufficiency, along with learning strong character and leadership skills. BGCOP members have higher graduation rates and lower teen pregnancy and crime rates than area youth, resulting in a 1,200 percent return on donor investments.
