As we partner with you here at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica for the social, educational and recreational interests of your child, I want you to know, that your belief in our organization as the best place for your child does not go unnoticed, and we thank you!
Each year, we work together with our staff, Board of Directors, and the greater community to ensure a safe, fun, and engaging Club experience for your child. We know that as parents, you enjoy hearing about the great programs and services we offer. Our promise is to be available to you and your family! We care about our members and their families, and invite you to be a part of our efforts.
As we approach a new school year, over 655 youth a day will be served throughout our ten Boys & Girls Clubs of Santa Monica locations. Every day, we work hard to raise the funds necessary to continue the great programs we have been able to offer your children this summer.
Homework help, tutoring, field trips, arts & crafts, music and sports are just a few of the programs that we are sure your child has had an opportunity to participate in AND gain something from. We want to keep our membership fees low for you, however our costs are going up.
Just think, if each of our Club members’ (over 3,939) families contributed the cost of just one $5 specialty beverage each month to support the Boys & Girls Clubs, we would raise $19,695 each month. We ask you to consider making a monthly $5 donation or a one-time donation of $60. We are a 501(c)(3) nonprofit—every dollar of our funding is raised by the generous contributions of our caring community. Your support will contribute to our $3,900,000 budget this year!
As the saying goes, “many hands make light work.” If each of our parents become a part of our fundraising efforts, we will be an organization where our families, staff, and Board of Directors can proudly say we have a 100% giving rate, ensuring that our programs and extracurricular activities can carry on throughout the year.
