*The pictures you see displayed were taken before COVID-19 hit - we wanted to demonstrate to you the special place the Club is! The safety of our Club and Staff members is always our top priority!
For more than 84 years, through wars, tragedies, and economic crises, the Boys & Girls Club of Ridgefield has been a constant in the lives of children and families in our community. We are all facing challenges unlike anything previously encountered. In this critical time, we remain committed to supporting the kids and families who rely on our services.
Like so many others, the COVID-19 pandemic has already considerably hurt the Club financially. Although necessary, we have had to postpone, cancel, or alter most of our fundraising events and greatly restrict or cancel program operations, resulting in limited revenue. We are currently estimating a $500,000 loss to our organization in 2020. The expenses are beginning to dramatically outweigh the income and the situation has become critical.
When COVID-19 hit, we rose to the occasion to help those that needed us the most. But now, we need help in ensuring we can continue to be a pillar in the Ridgefield community for many years to come.
We know that the Club is essential to Ridgefield. Our families need us more than ever. But, we need help. We can’t do it alone. Our doors lead to great futures, and with your support and generosity, we can keep them open and can continue to be a part of this community for many years to come.
