Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale Foundation – Your Act of Generosity, Our Future

As the Chairman of the Foundation, I am honored to work alongside a deeply dedicated group of individuals devoted to improving the lives of thousands of youth in our community.  The BGCS Foundation Board of Trustees is entrusted with preserving the future of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale by managing and growing the endowment, made possible by the generosity of the Barker Family and past, present, and future donors.

Our goal is to grow the endowment to eventually provide 20 percent support to BGCS annually. We invite you to join us in supporting local youth on their journey to reach academic and personal success, today and TOMORROW.
