Ascension Campaign

The Boys & Girls Club of Greater Baton Rouge is embarking on an expansion into Ascension Parish.  In partnership with Ascension Leadership, we are establishing a Boys & Girls Club at Lowery Elementary School.  The Pilot Program is scheduled to operate for the 2019-2020 school year targeting 30 to 45 third grade members.

The goal is to be able to offer a full-service Boys & Girls Club targeting all grades at Lowery (3 – 5 grades) reaching more than 100 students for the summer of 2020 and the 2020-2021 school year.  A fundraising campaign will need to raise $150,000 for this annual operating budget (see proposed budget).

Once the Boys & Girls Club at Lowery Elementary is operating, the Club would like to expand to other schools in the parish.

This campaign effort, while supported by the Boys & Girls Club staff, must be lead and sustained by the community for the community.  We have designed a three-pronged approach to raising this needed money:  Individuals, Corporations/Business and Grants. To sustain long term support funding must come from a diverse set of donors.
