Even though the Club only charges $25 a year to be a member, it actually costs $1,500 per year per child to deliver the academic and enrichment programs that families rely on and kids enjoy. The Club makes up the gap through fundraising in a variety of ways year-round including our latest effort— coin boxes.
Coin boxes were placed at 20 local businesses around the community throughout the summer to help us secure scholarship funds. On behalf of our members, thank you to the businesses that partnered with us and allowed a bit of counter space and informal advocacy for our programs and our local youth who need us most! And if you dropped some coins in a Boys & Girls Club box— thank you! Keep an eye out when you shop at our partnering locations this fall so you can get involved and give your change to be the change for the children of Corvallis.
