DONOR INSIGHTS NEWSLETTER
February 2021
THE TIMES MAY HAVE CHANGED,
BUT THE MISSION REMAINS THE SAME!


It is the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington to empower
all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach
their full potential as caring, productive, and responsible citizens.
DONATION RECEIPTS ARE GOING PAPERLESS!
We determined that sending donation receipts via email significantly increases our available time to spend focusing on our mission while decreasing postage cost and paper use. This is a win-win-win for all of us: more time for our staff to focus their mission-driven attention, more available funds to be used in service of our members, and a healthier environment for all of us to enjoy!

Please note: Your electronic Donation Receipt serves as your official
Tax Receipt for individual gifts. You will still receive a mailed statement in January 2022, detailing all of your 2021 giving. Thank you for your support during this important transition!
A PEEK INSIDE THE CLUB!
Throughout the month of February, you will have the unique opportunity to meet some of our members and see inside each of our three Clubs as we continue to embrace the "new normal!"

Friday, February 5th
Ferguson Crestmont Club

Friday, February 12th
Ellettsville Club

Friday, February 19th
Lincoln Street Club
Club members will present video tours of each Club site. You will see how our members are thriving inside of the Club while also learning about their favorite programs and what the Club is like during these new normal times.

These videos are being totally created by Club members at each site; they are writing the script, selecting the on-screen talent, setting up shots, and even helping with the editing and post-production!

These special video tours will be posted on our official Facebook page each Friday at 12:00 p.m. Please mark your calendars so you do not miss these fantastic videos that showcase our Club members!

Special thank you to Jay Baer and 80/20 Agency for their incredible support and enthusiasm in helping our Club members create these videos!
