Thanks to the generous support of our community members, Boys & Girls Clubs of Maury County now serves more than 1,200 youth each year. We are committed to serving ALL youth and families who need us, regardless of household income. It costs our organization approximately $53 per week to provide a child with our life-changing services. This includes a healthy afterschool snack; daily homework help and tutoring by certified teachers; a safe, positive environment; trained youth development professionals who build caring relationships with the youth we serve; and much more.
Many of the families we serve are not able to pay what it costs the Club to provide services. Our membership fees are structured so that parents only pay what they can afford to pay, and financial assistance and full scholarships are offered to any family who needs it. Approximately 72% of current members receive financial aid or full scholarships. As a result, we must fundraise to close that gap for our low-income families and ensure that the Club is available for all kids who need it. For 2018, we must raise $1.1 million through grants, special events, and individual/corporate giving in order to close that gap. Your support is needed now more than ever, so that we can continue to serve even more kids in 2019. When you support the Club, you ensure that we never have to turn a family away due to an inability to pay.
