Dash for a Great Future: Do you have what it takes to build Great Futures?

 

AUGUST 27 –  SEPTEMBER 24

 

Then Club Blue wants YOU! We’re looking for participants for our second-annual Dash to a Great Future. This crowd-fundraising campaign goes directly towards access to technology, healthy meals, and positive role models for the 4,700 youth that count on Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee.

Dash will officially kick-off on August 27 and will conclude on September 24 with a ‘graduation party’ where we will celebrate all the participants’ and their supporters, as well as crown our top fundraisers.

Club Blue provides all the tips and training, you just need to bring the passion for our youth and a willingness to have fun!

FAQ:

There are three giving levels within Club Blue:

Professional: 
Club Blue Professionals give at least $25 per month. This monthly fee covers the annual membership fee for one youth. Your commitment at this level helps honor our commitment that no child or family is ever turned away because of their inability to pay.

Ambassador: 
Club Blue Ambassadors give at least $40 per month. Along with scholarships, this monthly fee helps cover the cost of transportation for members from their schools to the Clubs. Transportation is essential for working families to ensure that their children arrive safely to the Club without interrupting their work days.

Champion: 
Club Blue Champions give at least $60 per month. Along with scholarships and transportation, this monthly fee helps prepare youth for their classrooms and careers by providing technology and internet connectivity. As we move into a more digital age, it is critical to provide students a place to access and use up-to-date technology.

Club Blue members enjoy:

  • Being connected with other young professionals with similar interests
  • A welcome gift & personalized Club Card

We understand that our members live busy lives and may not be available to volunteer as much as they would like, and that is ok!

However, we know when our Club Blue members volunteer, they truly feel the impact of their gifts and enrich our Club members’ lives. Therefore, we will communicate every month about upcoming opportunities in our nine Clubs and will encourage our members to actively volunteer at least once a quarter, if they are able.

Yes; there are many opportunities for leadership in Club Blue.

We have an advisory board and several committees that need you! If you are interested in serving in a leadership role, we can help connect you to a position after you join Club Blue. You must be a contributing Club Blue member to be eligible for a leadership role within the organization.

Members will receive information about upcoming events, including exclusive events, such as leadership seminars and service projects, in the monthly newsletter delivered to their emails.

All events open to members and non-members will be advertised on the Club Blue Facebook page, as well as under the BGCMT event tab.
