Give the gift that changes a life…
All children deserve the right to be loved, nurtured and given the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. Too many children are unsafe, unsupervised and under-challenged in the after school hours. Millions of "latchkey kids” return home to an empty house. It is a proven fact that between the hours of three and eight p.m. children are at a greater risk of being involved in crime, substance abuse and teenage pregnancy.
The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara, Inc. provides a safe and positive place for 1,500 children every year where children receive social and emotional support, develop self-esteem, positive values and skills. Our programs are constantly evolving to provide the best services to children. But we cannot continue to meet the needs of Santa Barbara’s youth without the generous support of the community. Our membership dues are low ($20 a year) so that every child has access to our programs, yet it costs more than $1060 annually per child for our services. Earning this difference means never turning a child away. With every dollar of your tax deductible donation we are making a difference. The choice to support the Club is yours, but the rewards are shared by everyone – especially the children who represent the future.
