Who we are...
It all started when...
Futures Builder is the monthly giving program of Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows.
Over time, BGCTM has learned that traditional one-time gifts, while important and much appreciated are inconsistent from year-to-year. One of the advantages of monthly giving is that it is highly predictable.
That positive consistency is exactly what these kids are seeking. Every day that kids are not in a Boys & Girls Club they are missing out on opportunities…on the benefits of a life-changing friendship. Your consistent monthly giving adds stability to the planning process, which helps Boys & Girls Club to be very intentional in implementing new programs like the Leadership in Training program and putting in place the resources to make it successful for the kids.
1976 marked the beginning of operations for the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows. The Club was formed and financed by local business men and women and many concerned citizens. In late 1981, the Club’s main facility opened at its current location on E. 9th St. in Reno – the Club now boasts a total of 20 locations throughout Reno, Sparks and Fernley.
In 2016, the Boys & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows celebrated its 40th year of “Proudly Serving Kids in Northern Nevada.”
