​​​​​​​Because the kids deserve it!


For the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Helena and Calistoga, 2015 is an exceptionally important year.

After nearly two years of planning and preparation, we have launched the public phase of our capital campaign, the "Great Futures Campaign: Building a Positive Place for Kids."

This campaign will raise $9.5 million to build a new Clubhouse in Callistoga, provide a perpetual maintenance endowment and two years of operating funds for the new Club.

Capital campaigns have been described as "extreme fundraising" for a nonprofit human service agency. We seek contributions that are normally much larger than those donations made for operating, and we allow those gifts to be made as multi-year pledges. In doing so, we are required to have a financing plan over a series of years. And, while the capital campaign is ongoing, we must also continue to raise our annual operating budget so there is no "hiccup" in our daily operations. Our important programs must continue seamlessly, with the bills and staff paid on time.  

I have been asked, "Why is the Boys & Girls Clubs taking on a capital campaign? What is the compelling reason?"

My answer is always the same,
"Because the kids deserve it!"

For 14 years, we have been offering a school-based program at Calistoga Elementary School. Over those years, the growth and complexity of both the Boys & Girls Club and the school itself have occurred. Space in the school today is at a premium. As welcomed guests, we appreciate all that the school provides. But, with 432 kids in membership (and sometimes 170 a day in attendance), it is VERY difficult to provide the depth and quality of after school and summer programs for Calistoga kids when we are sometimes bouncing from room to room and carting supplies around the campus in little red wagons. Our ancient portable office leaks in the winter.... and, quite simply, the kids deserve better. We are committed to providing the best Boys & Girls Club experience possible for our members and the community.

So, point on News and Events above, and then click on the Great Futures Campaign. Watch for updates on our progress. 2015-2016 will be fundraising years, followed by architectural/permits/construction. We hope to open the doors to our new, beautiful and fully equipped 14,000sf Calistoga Clubhouse  on Labor Day 2017.

Here's a closing thought--- how about sending a check or making a pledge to this project? We need your help.

Why?
Because the kids deserve it!

As always, thanks for your support.    
Jay Templeton
