The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell is committed to being accessible to all families in Lowell, so we keep our membership fees low at just $30 per year ($5 for teens). Membership fees cover only about 3% of our annual operating costs, and though we do receive some funding from local and state sources and the Boys & Girls Club of America, more than 75% of our annual revenue comes from private support.
Your donation helps bridge the gap between the low fee our members pay, and the actual cost (about $1500 per Club member) to provide healthy meals, engaging programs and supportive staff at the Boys & Girls Club.
I came here just to meet new friends and play basketball. I never saw coming here as anything bigger than that, but now I see it as a great outcome for me and my future.
An investment in youth is the best investment you can make. You’re not only changing the individual’s life, but the outcome of a whole society, a whole community.
