An Ounce of Prevention
It takes money to run a Boys & Girls Club - on average, about $450 per youth per year. But consider the alternative: keeping a young adult in jail costs taxpayers anywhere from $25,000 to $130,000 per year. Boys & Girls Clubs - a proven delinquency prevention program - are one of the best bargains in America.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America's efficient use of financial resources has won national recognition. In its latest "Philanthropy 400" report, The Chronicle of Philanthropy ranked Boys & Girls Clubs of America (B&GCA) No. 1 among youth organizations for the Ten consecutive years, and No. 11 among all non-profit organizations.
