Your membership makes their membership possible!
The Friends Council is a young philanthropy group that supports Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston. Now in its 11th year, the Friends Council connects professionals from across industry and neighborhood to support BGCB’s mission and impact. 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 $25 per month, the same amount as the one-time fee families pay to join the Boys & Girls Clubs for the entire school year. In making your gift, you will not only support the critical work of BGCB but also join a group of 200+ like-minded peers; together we raised more than $138,000 for BGCB just last year!
