Fund-a-Future

Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue’s Fund-a-Future campaign is a two-week unifying fundraising event, which calls on BGCB’s community of donors, partners, volunteers, and friends to come together to support BGCB’s Clubhouses and raise critical funds for youth we serve.

Help us fund great futures from Thursday, October 15–Friday October 30, 2020.

What does Fund-A-Future support?
Since March, when Covid-19 forced sudden school closures, Boys & Girls Clubs of Bellevue made a commitment to fill the gaps in accessible youth care, food scarcity, and academic support by keeping our doors open for families in need. This fall, sites are operating as full-day remote learning centers and combatting food insecurity by providing breakfast, lunch, and snacks to all members. 

With out-of-school learning, food insecurity increases, and educational gaps widening, support during our Fund-A-Future campaign ensures every child has equal access to resources, trusted mentors, and safe learning environment.


What is the goal?
Between our Champions of Youth Gala and our Peer-to-Peer fundraising campaign, our goal is to raise $350,000 for the children and teens who need us most.
