Mission

The mission of the Austin Boys and Girls Club Foundation is to provide a perpetual source of ongoing funds to support the Boys & Girls Clubs of the Austin Area (BGCAA) mission of serving more kids in a more impactful way, and to provide a source of emergency funds, were the existence of BGCAA ever threatened.

Purpose

The Foundation’s purpose is to provide a perpetual source of ongoing funds to support the BGCAA mission of serving more kids in a more impactful way, and to provide a source of emergency funds if the existence of BGCAA should ever become threatened.

Proceeds from the endowment are also used to award college scholarships to qualifying Club members, which in turn ensures the long-term sustainability of the community.
