“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 14,000 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 13,000 youth and teens safe, contributes to 60+ scholarships annually, and so much more.

Doing whatever it takes as long as it takes.

These past two years have put everyone through some really tough experiences.

Our children have been uniquely impacted by the pandemic, having experienced this crisis during important periods of physical, social, emotional and academic development. Some may have lost loved ones or others may have felt the impact of their family’s loss of income, food or housing security.

That is exactly why this year at the Club has been arguably more important than any other year. We needed to support our kids academically and socially and we needed to provide a safe space for them to be kids. And that’s exactly what we did, but there’s so much more to do.
