Financial A​id & Community Resources 

At the Boys & Girls Clubs, we work hard to ensure that ​income level does not prevent children from participating in our youth programs. As a non-profit, we rely on the generosity of our community to provide resources for families. Last year, we gave out close to $350,000 in need-based scholarships, with more than 70% of our Club members utilizing our services for reduced rates or at no cost. In line with our mission, “To enable and inspire all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens,” we strive to connect families with additional resources offered throughout Central Oregon.
