Boys & Girls Club of Metro Phoenix fills the critical need for out-of-school supervision and care by providing a safe, nurturing environment for kids to learn, recreate, socialize, and develop into caring, responsible members of the community. They ensure that cost is never a barrier for a child or teen. Through twelve clubs, they provide fun and educational centers for youth to reach their full potential. Additionally, they provide low cost dental services for economically disadvantaged children. For the fifth year in a row, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix earned 4 stars from Charity Navigator, the premier charity evaluator. They scored a 96.58 out of 100, allowing them to receive the “Exceptional” rating. This ranks BGCMP as one of the top charities in the nation.
Laura Rogal, partner at Jaburg Wilk and BGCMP Connect board member, said “Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Phoenix are a safe harbor for many Arizona children. Their reach of touching nearly 30,000 children is impressive and I am honored to continue to support them through the Connect board”.
