Great Futures Start Here!
The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley has been a cornerstone of the community since opening our doors in 1998. Serving over 13,000 youth a year, we provide them with the opportunity to:
- feel and be safe,
- know someone cares,
- be challenged by interesting, life-enhancing activities.

November 30#GivingTuesday was a HUGE success thanks in part to the $25,000 donation from Oshkosh Corporation Foundation! Thank you for helping to inspire and enable all youth, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, responsible, and caring citizens.
November 29Today is #GivingTuesday -- the perfect time to give back and show you care about kids in our community -- and now you can help children twice as much!
Right now, every gift will be matched up to $100,000 to create a culture of kindness and encouragement for more of our nation's youth. TWO TIMES as many children could know they're valued, thanks to you.
Please give right away so more children can feel the comfort and security of their Boys & Girls Club's extended family this holiday. Visit http://bit.ly/2gFOJTH to DOUBLE your dollars and help save lives!
