BGCDC NEW ANNUAL REPORT

A LETTER FROM THE CEO

Dear Community Friend and Supporter,

As the end of year nears, we reflect on the many reasons to be grateful in anticipation of a new year, 2022. This year has been a hard one. Yet, we have demonstrated how we can overcome challenges through the power of togetherness. Together , we have provided over 1,000 COVID-19 vaccinations to underserved communities to ensure equity in access. Together , we have provided 140 youth access to summer employment opportunities, earning an income for themselves and to help support their families. Together , we have embarked on the largest initiative in the history of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Dane County with the McKenzie Regional Workforce Center, to make sure youth have options to skilled trades careers pathways, equal to our college career pathway. Through YOUR generosity, we: • Supported over 4,000 youth and families, through education & career development, health & wellness, character & leadership, sports & recreation, and family engagement enrichment programming. • Provided over 5,000 community meals when food insecurity was at its highest • Led the coordination of the 1st African American statue being erected on any state capitol grounds, honoring the legacy of Vel Phillips. We have accomplished so much together, and there is still much work to do. We thank you for your support in this year. It’s because of YOU, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of young people and families. We remain committed to our mission - “to inspire and empower all young people, especially those who need us themost”. As we continue tomove our mission forward, we know we have a greater impact, together. Please support our youth and their futures. On behalf of our members, families, and community, THANK YOU, for your past and future monetary gifts.

MICHAEL JOHNSON, MBA PRESIDENT & CEO BOYS & GIRLS CLUBS OF DANE & WALWORTH COUNTY

With Warmest Regards,
