Help Make It Possible This Holiday Season
The next generation is our greatest gift. When given the opportunities and resources to realize their Great Futures, there's nothing our next generation can't do!
For over 75 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of Portland Metro have been at the forefront of providing a safe and nurturing space where youth can spend time out of school, sharpen skills, discover new pursuits and surround themselves with a strong support system of friends and mentors.
We have 10 club sites in the highest need communities in the Portland Metro Area, serving youth ages six to 18. Every day, through caring, professional staff mentors, our Clubs meet the critical needs of our diverse members by providing everyday necessities such as healthy meals and snacks, academic support, counseling services, field trips, and employment opportunities. Additionally, we support our communities through free food distribution and vaccination clinics. We make great efforts to stay in-tune with the needs of local communities to ensure our programmatic strategy and approach are relevant and responsive to the communities we serve.
This holiday season, Make It Possible by investing in our next generation. They are our future and they are depending on us to create pathways to their Great Futures.

The Impact of Donations
The impact of a single donation is huge because every donation, big or small, supports the programs and services our Clubs do to serve the youth and families in our communities. It helps our Clubs do whatever it takes to be responsive and relevant towards filling the resource and opportunity gaps our youth need to thrive. Last year, with the support of donors and community partners who have invested in our Clubs, we served over 1,000 youth, and even more families in our communities. Our Club served over 45,000 hot meals and healthy snacks and administered 4,000+ Covid-19 vaccines since June 2021.
This generation of youth is our greatest gift and they are the leaders of tomorrow. By investing in them and providing them the opportunities and resources they deserve, you are investing in the future.
