About Our Campaign

It takes all of us.

All kids are worthy of great futures. But they can’t do it alone. They need safe spaces, healthy food, and adults they can look up to and learn from. They need all of us working together.

That’s why Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Ohio created the Investing in Great Futures Comprehensive Campaign. We want everyone to have the chance to get involved in our mission — to enable young people to reach their full potential.

Our Campaign Goals

Build a New Clubhouse

Our oldest facility — the Milo-Grogan Club — was constructed in 1955. It is outdated and ill-equipped to serve our kids. Your gift will help us build a new Clubhouse, double its original size, with a state-of-the-art design. Learn more about the new Club.

Expand Programs

The youngest generation needs our help more than ever before. Right now, we can’t reach every kid. Your gift will bring our programs to thousands of children and teens in the Columbus, Newark, and Marion communities.

Respond to Opportunities

The world around us is changing. To serve our kids, whatever the future brings, we must evolve with the times. Your gift will ensure we have the resources to sustain and grow our mission for the long-term.

“When we come together, we can get positive things done for our community. This Club will offer kids a fresh, inclusive space to learn and grow with next-level amenities and programming. As a dad of four, I know how important that is.”
