HOW YOU CAN HELP
The Mashkisibi Boys & Girls Club is a nonprofit organization for which we charge $5.00 a year for membership, which covers less than 0.5% of our financial needs to operate daily. The Mashkisibi Boys & Girls Club is funded through foundation and government grants, special events fundraising, and individual contributions. We rely heavily on contributions to help us sustain our current level of quality after school programming.
As the nation's fastest-growing youth service organization, Boys & Girls Clubs serve millions of young people ages 5-18. Throughout our history, we have always held a special concern for children from disadvantaged circumstances. Our comprehensive youth development programs and services provide young people with the skills to overcome their challenges and become responsible citizens and leaders.
The Mashkisibi Boys & Girls Club welcomes individuals and groups of volunteers to help us inspire and enable young people. Volunteers act as adult role models and can contribute on many levels. The gift of a volunteer’s time and talents is very much appreciated.
