You Can Help Build a Better Community

The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa is a registered charity that provides 4,500 children and youth in seven at-risk neighbourhoods across the city with a safe space during the most vulnerable hours of the day, and FREE access to life-changing programs in four key programming pillars that are purposefully designed to drive personal development:

Why support the Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa:

  • Your support stays local and supports those who are most in need
  • The Boys and Girls Club of Ottawa has the greatest reach and impact on children and youth in the city. In 2016, Club visits reached an all-time high with over 114,000 visits.
  • 54% (over $2.5 million) of the Club’s annual revenue currently comes from individual and corporate donors. As the demand for Club resources in our community continues to grow, and public sector funding is cutback and minimum wages increase, the need for private funding is greater than ever.
  • Just 9% of funds raised goes to cover administration costs. This means 91% goes directly to program delivery.

Barrier Free Access

The BGCO invests in Ottawa’s community by elevating tomorrow’s generation. The BGCO is the only afterschool youth
services organization providing barrier-free access to:

  • Safe, open and readily accessible facilities in seven vulnerable locations across the city plus a summer camp
  • A multitude of quality development programs designed to empower youth to reach their full potential and give them confidence and skills for life
  • Inclusivity and openness to all regardless of race, religion, social or economic status
  • Structured programs tailored to support working families and community’s needs
  • Regularly available, structured, supervised group environments
  • Passionate and highly skilled staff
  • Carefully screened and devoted volunteers
