You can make Awesome Experiences a reality. Boys & Girls Clubs of Elkhart County partners with donors to create life-changing impact for our Club kids. We have a long-standing and proud tradition of private sector support. Community partners like you share a strong commitment to helping our young people succeed in life.

Local companies and their employees get behind and promote specific experiences you see below – setting goals to raise money for that program and other Awesome Experiences around the county.

You can get involved too. Every donation to any of the experiences enables us to connect members to meaningful activities and realize their full potential. Your donation will be used wisely to provide an Awesome Experience to young people throughout the county, in a variety of program areas. It’s something they will never forget!

These experiences give kids a look at the world beyond their neighborhood. They help young people see a world of possibilities, feel empowered and know they can make a difference in the world.
