Boys & Girls Clubs of America
Known as “the positive place for kids,” the Boys & Girls Clubs of America serve over 4 million youngsters annually in 3,400 club locations.
Today the Boys & Girls Clubs of America’s list of corporate partners features dozens of Fortune 500 companies, but it was not always so. Just 12 years ago, it did not have any corporate partners.
That is when Kurt Aschermann, now chief marketing and development officer, began crafting an organization that endeavors to provide corporate partners with a high level of account service. The effort has paid off in the form of partnerships that have generated hundreds of millions of dollars worth of cash and in-kind resources.
More than just quantity, the Boys & Girls Clubs have developed many high quality programs with their partners to serve the kids. The Crest Cavity Free Zone program is improving the dental health of millions of underserved children. Backed with a $100 million cash and in-kind donation from Microsoft, Club Tech is putting computers and software to work for kids and staff in clubs across the country. And Blockbuster’s support of the clubs’ National Kids Day promotion has generated millions in funding.
