We would like to acknowledge those corporations, businesses and foundations that supported our programs and events over the last year. They are committed to changing the lives of our youth and strengthening our community.
United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades County is a volunteer organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for all people in our community. As a agency partner we work with other non profits to strengthen the quality of our programs. United way funds general operations for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County.
City of Fort Myers supports our mission to bring quality after school and summer programs to those youth that need us the most. Our partnership includes funding as well as use of several parks and buildings for our programs.
Florida Department of Education and the School District of Lee County shares our vision of educational success. Their funding provides tutors for homework assistance. Boys & Girls Club members constantly maintain and improve their grades with the help from these tutors.
Wachovia Foundation generously funds the Power Hour program. Power Hour is a homework assistance program that teaches members the value of education and how to become self directed learners.
Southwest Florida Community Foundation supports various programs throughout the year. This year the Foundation awarded a grant to purchase a van for the Boys & Girls Clubs. The transportation will allow members to visit colleges, attend special events, participate in job shadowing programs and field trips.
Publix Charities supports our Summer Scholarship Fund. These funds help offset the cost of our summer program and makes the program affordable for all members. Publix also collects over 3,000 school supplies during their Tools for School drive. This donation ensures all Club members are equipped with school supplies on the first day of school.
Bonita Springs-Estero Association of Realtors hold an annual Chinese Auction to raise funds for the Pueblo Bonito Summer Program. Funds raised at the event directly support summer scholarships for members of Pueblo Bonito.
We would also like to thank our Event Sponsors. Throughout the year the Boys & Girls Clubs of Lee County holds several fundraising events. These sponsors are vital to the success of the events they support.
