Our Mission

The mission of the Boys and Girls Club of Newark (BGCN) is to enable all of Newark’s young people to become caring, productive, and responsible individuals.

Why Donate?


We work to ensure every dollar you donate to Boys and Girls Club of Newark (BGCN) serves the youth of Newark and beyond. All funds raised will go towards where it is needed most!

Doubling your donation can make more of an impact than you know. Increasing from $50 a month to $100 a month can turn create an avenue for a child to receive Swimming lessons for the entire year! Making that small change provides a child with the tools to learn a basic skill that would ultimately save them in a life threatening situation.

There are so many other ways that your impact can change the lives of our youth through giving. So, what are you waiting for? Give Today!
