Make a Gift




Your investment in the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias (BGCS) helps young people find a safe and constructive place where they belong during the critical after-school hours – a time when many kids are left unsupervised. Making a donation to Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias is an easy and solid investment. $400 sends a child to the Boys & Girls Club for an entire year. We invite you to invest in the future. The choice is yours, but the rewards are shared by everyone – especially the children who represent our future. Boys & Girls Clubs of the Sequoias (BGCS) considers all donor information collected as confidential to our organization. As such, it is BGCS’s policy to never sell or trade any donor or contact information. Furthermore, BGCS will never send mailings on behalf of other organizations.
