Ongoing Giving:

Growing up in today’s world isn’t easy for anyone, but for many kids in our community, it is tougher than you might expect. Every day, staff members at Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth are faced with the task of providing young people with the tool they need to succeed in life. During the school year, we provide tutoring and academic mentoring services to children who need them, especially at-risk children struggling to make positive change in their lives.  But we need your help, donate this year end to help Great Futures Start Here.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Grand Rapids Youth Commonwealth (BGCGRYC) only charges $5/year for local youth to become Club members. Because our funding is not generated by member fees, we rely on our community and donors to help support our mission.

Designate a specific Club location or the "General Fund" below to support our ongoing efforts to provide a positive place for kids.

If you do not wish to donate electronically, please feel free to mail checks made out to "BGCGRYC" to our Administrative office located at Steil Boys & Girls Club.
