Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County

Mission

Our mission is to inspire and empower the youth of Monterey County to realize their full potential to become responsible, healthy, productive and successful citizens.

The Big Idea

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County focuses on healthy lifestyles and addresses the wellness needs of youth and their families by holistically helping them build a stronger, healthier and safer community. With food insecurity increasing due to Covid-19, the Boys and Girls Clubs will serve over 200,000 nutritious meals this year. Meals are delivered to low-income housing communities as well as served on-site to youth participating in the nonprofit’s essential child care and distance learning support programs. The clubs collaborate with other nonprofits and businesses to provide hundreds of food boxes to families in need, from Soledad to Marina. Beyond nutrition, the clubs address the physical, mental and social well-being of children through daily fitness activities, cooking classes and counseling services.

The lunches at the Boys & Girls Clubs are my favorite. Everything is always so delicious and I especially like the bars that they put in the grab and go bags right now. I look forward to them every day and they always fill me up so I have a lot of energy to play with my siblings and focus on school!

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.

The 2020 Campaign begins November 12.
