Double Your Impact

The Matching Gift Challenge maximizes the impact of your gift

Here’s your chance to double your impact on a child’s future! Thanks to the generosity of three area families, the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Fox Valley has received a $100,000 Matching Gift Challenge. So when you choose to donate now through December 31, 2019 your gift will be matched dollar for dollar.

“Without the Club I don’t know where I’d be. Some other kids my age have gotten into drugs and other things I don’t agree with due to not having a safe, fun place to hang out. But the Club saved me from that.” – Kaliyah

Consider all the possibilities and opportunities that your donation can provide Boys & Girls Club members who need it most. Think about the impact that those can have on their futures. Club members are more likely to avoid drugs and alcohol, positively handle conflict, graduate from high school on time, and set and achieve their goals.

Please consider the difference your gift could make on the lives of young people in the Fox Valley.

“We believe that all children deserve an equal opportunity to reach their full potential.  As we look to the future, it is our duty and responsibility to ensure that we continue to evolve and meet kids’ needs.  We must do everything possible to ensure our young people have opportunities outside of school and home that promote their healthy development and enable them to live a happy, productive, caring life as adults.” – Greg Lemke-Rochon, Chief Executive Officer
