Brackett Foundation Repair Supports Boys and Girls Club of Wake County Spring Fundraising Campaign
Raleigh, North Carolina - The Wake County Boys and Girls Club launched their 2011 fundraising period with the help of a challenge grant to match donor funds. Fundraising for the 2011 Positive Place for Kids Campaign is in progress.
The 2011 campaign goal is $1.2 million, aiming for about $1 million from corporate donations.
Brackett Foundation Repair was one of hundreds of corporations that received a letter requesting support in early March. John Boulware, VP of Brackett Foundation Repair, the Triangle's most experienced foundation repair company, responded to the donation request from the local Boys and Girls Club. "We've been in business in the Triangle for almost 40 years and know how valuable the Boys and Girls Clubs are for the community."
The 2011 Positive Place for Kids Campaign began on February 15th and will continue through mid-May 2011. Ms. Marymac Webb of The Wake County Boys and Girls Club confirmed that the challenge grant will continue to match all donations for this campaign. The campaign aims to raise about half of the organization's $3 million annual budget.
One sign of how valuable Boys and Girls Clubs can be seen in the statistics about high school graduation rates for participants. In The Wake County Boys and Girls Club graduation among participants was almost 80% in 2010, and it is 100% for those who stay from 9th - 12th grade.
A February 2011 News and Observer article by Chelsea Kellner describes additional needs of the local Boys and Girls Club. In addition to needing support for their annual operating budget, they are also looking to raise capital to cover expansion needs.
