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.
BOYS to MEN is back- Live and in-person!!

This amazing event returns on October 28th at the Steve & Connie Ferguson Crestmont Club.

Our Keynote speaker this year is IU Men's Basketball's new Head Coach- Mike Woodson! We're excited to have him, and we're incredibly thankful for IU's support!

In August, we recognized several members of the community that have given to the Club, either through donations of goods, money, or their time by awarding them the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington's BE GREAT award! These individuals include:

  • Justin Goonan - Volunteer
  • Jo Ann Main- Volunteer
  • Commercial Services - Club Supporter
  • Monroe County Community School Corporation - Club Supporter
  • Marti Colglazier - Club Supporter

We're so glad that we were able to take the time to properly honor our BE GREAT award winners this year, as the Club truly could not operate the way we do without the support of the honorees!

Help Support us in the Hoosier Hills Credit Union Donation Drive

Hoosier Hills Credit Union is pledging to donate a total of $10,000 to three organizations across Monroe County, including the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington! The $10,000 donation will be distributed proportionally based on how much the community contributes in the name of the organization!

For example, if the Boys & Girls Clubs of Bloomington receives 50% of the total donations received by Hoosier Hills, we would receive $5,000! That's why we need YOUR HELP!
Please consider checking out the Hoosier Hills Donation Drive below! We appreciate your support!
Fall (Pajama) Ball - THANK YOU For Your Support!
While we were disappointed that we were not able to have an in-person Father Daughter Dance, we are thrilled to say that we were able to provide 140 kids with a take-home Fall (Pajama) Ball kit. The reception of the take-home kits was amazing! Thank you so much for your support!

We are in the process of planning next year's Father Daughter Dance, which will be a safe, outdoor event, ensuring that we will be able to hold the Dance in-person. Thank you for your understanding as we navigate this pandemic, and we look forward to seeing you in person next year.
