Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous E-Newsletter

Dear Friends of the Boys & Girls Club of the Siskiyous:
We are very excited to share with you all our participation this year with the  North State Giving Tuesday This is a great opportunity to give where you live and be part of something great.

"GREAT FUTURES START HERE" is the BGCSiskiyous Club motto, and your donation is much appreciated to help us with that vision for the youth in our communities.

Here's a link to our page on the North State Gives website:
It's easy, and your donation helps us provide much needed program materials and staff to continue our mission to serve the youth of Siskiyou County.

When you give between the hours of 6am and 8pm on the first Tuesday after Thanksgiving (November 28), your donation is eligible for a boost from a percentage of more than $85,000 in incentive pool funds that will help us win additional dollars. You can even take advantage of tax benefits by transferring stock from a charitable IRA rollover distribution!

If you will be too busy on Giving Tuesday to make your donation, you can now schedule your donation ahead of time to be made on that date. Similar to the technology of bill pay, a donor can create an account any time between now and November 28 to schedule your gift to be processed on Giving Tuesday. 

We had a great summer with an average of 75 members participating every day. Our fall after school program has taken off, as well.

We look forward to building more opportunities to serve the youth of Siskiyou County with your help. Questions? Call (530) 220-5055 or email

Thank you all for your continued support!

Boys & Girls Clubs serve more than 4 MILLION youth every year, in over 4,200 independent organizations across the country, and on military installations around the world. This type of National to Local relationship gives Clubs the strength of a vast network of resources, talent, knowledge, and branding, while maintaining the flexibility to meet the incredibly diverse needs of every neighborhood where Clubs are located. With millions of youth reached every year, and hundreds of millions that have walked through Club doors since the first Club opened in 1860, Boys & Girls Clubs truly are life changing places.
