“It Just Takes One” Donation

It Just Takes One, and that “One” could be you!

Each year, the Club reaches out to the community to ask for its support. The “It Just Takes One” campaign is part of the fabric of the more than 4,300 Boys & Girls Clubs worldwide, a call out to our communities to recognize the good the Club does and to help contribute to its success.

The Club relies on our community, the community relies on us.

The Boys & Girls Club relies on a combination of grants, as well as corporate and private donations to serve nearly 10,000 kids annually in the Truckee Meadows, Fernley, Ely, and Winnemucca areas. The nominal fees the Club charges – annual $20 memberships, field trip fees, etc. – don’t touch the “real cost” of providing these critical services. 

The “It Just Takes One” fundraiser keeps our 38+ locations ready to serve the community. It also helps keep nearly 10,000 youth and teens safe, contributes to 60+ scholarships annually, and so much more.

Doing whatever it takes as long as it takes.

In this challenging economic climate, families are relying on us more than ever. We continue to provide a safe, fun, inclusive, and inspiring place for Northern Nevada youth, offering an affordable environment for them to learn, grow and be themselves. And we are still committed to ensuring that every child has an opportunity with us, regardless of their ability to pay.

Despite rising inflation, which has raised the cost of gas for our buses, ingredients for our meals, supplies for our activities, and wages for our employees, we are maintaining the highest standards of care so that all kids, especially those who need us most, can reach their full potential—no matter what obstacles life puts in their way. It just takes one gift from you to help us continue to build great futures for those we serve.
