& ENDOWMENT:

Sustainable Resources for the Future

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Skagit County will always be dependent on the

support and investment of our community to work on our mission: to

enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full

potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. All but 15% of our $2million

budget comes from local contributions from individuals and businesses.

It’s Skagit philanthropy that ensures that more than 1,700 youth ages 6-18 are

the size of a dedicated source of Endowment funds.

In spring 2016, leadership from the Board of Directors and senior staff, joined

other high-performing Clubs from around country to begin participation in the

Advancing Philanthropy (AP) Project from Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA).

Recognizing the need to grow resources throughout the Club movement to better

respond to the increasing number of youth in poverty and need in the United

States, BGCA partnered with the Deerbrook Charitable Trust in conceiving and

implementing AP to “significantly enhance Club capacity to raise incremental

funds by strengthening board, building brand and most importantly, providing

training and coaching to increase fundraising capability.”

With an expanded toolset and deeper understanding of the many ways an individual

or corporation can make investments beyond annual support, the Skagit
