Change a life. Start with a child.
We provide scholarships for those who need assistance with our program fees. The actual cost of providing services is approximately $1,000 per child. A contribution of any size will help make up the difference. Since 83% of our budget goes directly to youth programming, you can be assured that your investment is guaranteed high returns in the life of a deserving young person and for our community as a whole. We also encourage in-kind gifts, which help us serve the children!
Examples of how your gift will be put to use:
- A $20 donation provides a 1/2 hour swim lesson.
- A $75 donation provides a child after-school services for a week.
- A $100 donation subsidizes a performing arts or summer camp scholarship.
- A $200 donation provides an athletic scholarship for a child to play in the BIG Eight Middle School Sports Program.
- A $450 donation underwrites a full year’s worth of specialized programming for a member including college preparatory programs, athletic league experiences, arts & crafts classes, and summer camps.
