“It Just Takes One” Donation

It Just Takes One, and that “One” could be you!

Each year, the Club reaches out to the community to ask for its support. The “It Just Takes One” campaign is part of the fabric of the more than 4,300 Boys & Girls Clubs worldwide, a call out to our communities to recognize the good the Club does and to help contribute to its success.

The Club relies on our community, the community relies on us.

The Boys & Girls Club relies on a combination of grants and corporate and private donations to serve nearly 13,000 kids annually in the Truckee Meadows, Fernley, Ely, Winnemucca, Panaca, Tonopah, and Lovelock areas. The nominal fees the Club charges – annual $20 memberships, field trip fees, etc. – don’t touch the “real cost” of providing these critical services. 

The “It Just Takes One” fundraiser keeps our 50 locations ready to serve the community. It also helps keep nearly 13,000 youth and teens safe, contributes to 60+ scholarships annually, and so much more.

Our Unwavering Dedication

When it comes to providing opportunities and safety to youth and teens, “enough” is never in our vocabulary. For 45 years, we’ve stood by our commitment to support and mentor those in need, thanks to the generosity of individuals like you.

Impacting Lives, One Child at a Time

Thanks to this community’s unwavering support, we’ve been able to provide nearly 13,000 members with vital resources such as homework help, nutritious meals, character development, and a safe haven beyond school hours. But we know that this is just the beginning.

Extending Our Reach to Underserved Communities

In the past year, we’ve taken bold steps to reach rural counties and communities where youth have never had the opportunities they deserve. Our programs empower children to break cycles, foster meaningful relationships, steer clear of risky behavior, and have their fundamental needs met.

Quality Childcare: A Lifeline for Families

We’re proud to announce the opening of Early Learning Centers in Reno, Winnemucca, and Ely. These centers address the urgent need for quality, affordable childcare for infants and toddlers, ensuring that parents no longer have to make the difficult choice between work and family.

Supporting Working Parents, Strengthening Communities

A recent U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation study found that 58% of working parents leave their jobs due to a lack of suitable childcare solutions. We aim to change that by providing reliable childcare options that empower parents to thrive in the workforce.

Advancing Our Impact

In addition to growth, we are dedicated to optimizing our programming and training. We’ve partnered with the University of Nevada, Reno, to offer mental health support and have equipped our staff with the skills to provide trauma-informed care.

Choose to Make a Difference

Today, we ask you to choose more: more opportunities for babies, kids, teens, communities, and support. Together, we can build necessary, sustainable, life-changing programs that serve more children while providing the best care and resources across all locations.

Your Impact, Their Future

Your generous donation today will impact the entire community, ensuring that deserving youth can reach their full potential as caring, productive citizens. Be the one who makes a profound difference. Please consider making a generous contribution.
