Frequently Asked Questions
There are three giving levels within Club Blue:
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.
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.
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.

No. 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.
