Opportunity Changes Everything

Very few times in life can an individual make a real difference to a community- especially a child. Elaine and I have supported the Club since 1997. We ask you to join us, knowing you are investing in a financially disciplined effort that maximizes its dollars to help children. No child is ever turned away because of lack of financial resources. Your support of the Foundation is an investment in your community and its children. We will always support this wonderful place of hope, warmth, possibilty and caring. Children are our future; they are the foundation of tomorrow.

Your Legacy is a Child’s Future

It is the mission of our Foundation to support the aims of the BBGC Kawarthas by acquiring the necessary financial resources to meet local children & youth services needs.

Through the fundraising activities of the Foundation, Club programs are offered with the guarantee that no child will ever be denied access due to financial difficulties. On behalf of the over 4,000 kids who use our programs- thank you for your legacy which will change a child’s future.

Clubs Change Lives

Boys & Girls Clubs are leading providers of after school and critical hours programs that support the healthy physical, educational, emotional and social development of young people. Boys & Girls Clubs help foster confidence, resilience and self-esteem.

Children have access to technology learning. Kids develop healthy living habits. Healthy snacks and meals are provided. Young people are empowered to develop essential leadership and employment skills that will serve them now and in adulthood. Research shows that children who have access to arts programs perform higher academically and are less likely to drop out of school.
