Advocate for Us

Boys & Girls Clubs needs your help! Boys & Girls Clubs of Ohio receives federal funding through a TANF (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families) Block Grant to provide our 60,000 members with programs. These programs are vital to the success of our members. The programs help enhance workforce readiness, promote academic success, support healthy lifestyles, and support Club operations to keep our kids safe and on track for future success.

    Unfortunately, these after school programs are under attack and may lose funding. They are extremely important to Boys & Girls Clubs members and losing them could be detrimental to their Club experiences. These programs provide our kids with opportunities to better themselves and the communities around them. 

    We need your help to advocate for our members and their futures. You can get involved by going to https://www.bgca.org/get-involved/advocacy and by contacting your Senator and letting him/her know that you support our members and Ohio’s Boys & Girls Clubs. You can also see upcoming advocacy events at https://www.bgca.org/get-involved/advocacy/advocacy-events. Help our kids continue building Great Futures for years to come by advocating for us today.
