In this season of giving, please consider at donation to the Boys and Girls Club. The Club has grown incredibly over the past four years, but for every additional member, we need to raise an extra $8/day in unrestricted funding.
To ensure that we can continue to keep membership fees to a minimum, we currently have to raise $1000 every day that the Club is open.
Club $25.26 was developed by our Board in 2012 when they calculated that if every household in South Lake Tahoe donated $25.26 a year to the Club, then we would be fully funded. That is just over $2 a month – one less Starbucks coffee a month and it is covered!
The money we raise through Club $25.26 goes towards paying for the staff and equipment to run our programs, rent for the building, and expenses for activities and trips. We keep a tight budget and are proud to say that we stretch every dollar, while still ensuring that our kids get the quality programs and activities they deserve.
Donating to Club $25.26 is easy. Either pop into the office and ask for Nicole or Jude, or go online to http://bgclt.org/club-25-26/ and sign up directly. You’ll also see options at our events and membership renewal periods to sign up.
Even if you are not in a position to donate, please reach out to friends, relatives and colleagues and ask them to participate. We have sponsorship packages for local businesses and love telling anybody who’ll listen about the organizations who support us.
Thank you to all of our families and community members who are already members of Club $25.26, we appreciate you so much, and look forward to even more donations in the future.
