Thank you doesn't seem enough, but the Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County want you to know how grateful we are for helping us achieve our holiday fundraising goal in 2021. In the final days of December, generous contributions from people like you helped us reach the lofty goal of raising $350,000.


That money will go toward providing life-changing programs for young people in Elkhart County in 2022. We promise to work hard to inspire and empower all young people -- especially those who need us most -- to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.


When kids have Clubs and Clubs have you, we're able to provide great moments. Don’t take our word for it. Here’s what members, parents and teachers say about the impact of the programs at Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County.


“I think the Club is definitely setting them up for success long term and I would like to see them continue to grow and develop the experiences they’ve had here. They’re getting the building blocks here that they need to have a successful future.” Alice, mother 


“I like the respect the staff gives to the kids. They make you feel welcomed. And that’s the one thing about (Club) that most places don’t offer. It just makes it comfortable to come here every day.” Cory, member


“They can be part of Lego League. They can go to art class. They can be part of the three-on-three basketball or soccer. So it’s not just being here and playing on the playground or being in a classroom. It’s actually letting them make choices and being part of other programs.” Meredith, mother 


“The more you come to Club, the more you change. I’ve seen a lot of kids grow to their full potential and develop into what they could be instead of what they are or what they look like. I’ve seen a lot of kids change from being a person who has bad grades to someone who's this scholar and doing all this math and all this reading.” Neer, member 


A second family. Emotional support. Mentors who lift you up in your time of greatest need. These are the moments that add up to great futures. Thank you again for your generosity.
