Membership fee increases

Annual membership for Club membership will increase to cbp5 effective Jan. 1, 2016. This is the first increase in more than five years and will help the Club meet the growing gap between membership fees and actual cost, which averages about $850 a year per member. Parents will receive a letter outlining the change in advance of membership renewals, which take place in January. The 2016 Membership Form reflects the new fee. Learn more about membership.

Your gift in action


  • “Everything about the Boys and Girls Club is good. It’s good people taking care of young people. It’s a blessing.”

    -Ed Nynas, board member

  • “All the places to go and things to do – makes it good. And you can play with your friends because they come here, too.”

    -Jameson, 4th grade

  • “I like visiting with Josh and Shelby – they’re fun and good listeners. It’s a good place to be to help stay away from bad things.”

    -Jewel, 10th grade

  • I come every day. I like the gym – basketball, jump roping and four square. I read with Josh. He reads some and I read some.

    -Jared, 1st grade

  • You can play a whole bunch of games in the games room – I usually play a game with my friends.

    -Kylie, 2nd grade

  • My three kids love the Club because it’s a fun place to hang out, a place where they feel safe and accepted.

    -Crystal, Club parent

  • My son has grown tremendously at the Club. He’s gained self-confidence and teamwork skills while learning the value of giving back to the community.
