Support Summer Camp at BGCB

We invite you to support summer programming for 2,300 youth at Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. 

At $100 per week, BGCB’s camp is one of the most affordable options in the city, yet many families still rely on scholarships to send their kids. Your support will directly help those in our community who need us most.

For more information, check out our 2019 sponsor packet or contact Gena Ricciardi at 614-994-4750 or gricciardi@bgcb.org.

In-Kind Support

We are looking for unique experiences, fun outings, and other special items to be featured in our silent auction and as prizes for night-of fundraising games. If you are interested in supporting BGCB, please view our in-kind support packet and/or contact Allie Kulis at 617-994-4708 or akulis@bgcb.org.

About The Friends Council

The Friends Council is a young philanthropy group that supports Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston (BGCB). Members join to give back, develop leadership skills, and connect with like-minded peers at social gatherings, networking events, and volunteer opportunities. Membership begins with a gift of just $25 per month, the same cost the young people of Boston and Chelsea pay to join the Club for a year. In making your gift, you will not only support the critical work of BGCB but also join a group of more than 200 like-minded peers; together we raised more than $135,000 for BGCB just last year!
