Great Futures Campaign 2024

Welcome to the 2024 Great Futures Campaign! Your support will help Wake County’s kids – the kids who need us the most – to succeed in school, work, and life!

A Message from the 2024 Great Futures Campaign Chairs

We are honored to lead the 2024 Great Futures Campaign and hope that you will join us in reaching this year’s ambitious goal of $1.5 million.

Your involvement has never been more important. As our community grows, so does the number of children and teens facing great challenges. Your generosity is vital to helping local “kids who need us most” to chart their paths toward healthy, self-sufficient, productive adulthoods. Through the Clubs, you change their lives by providing safe after-school spaces, positive role models, academic support, healthy meals, and fun!

This is an exciting time for our organization as highlighted by three key areas:

Growth – Wake County is growing fast, with many underserved communities in need of Boys & Girls Clubs. Our eighth Club opens this year in Garner’s Parrish Manor mobile home park and we are acquiring a larger space for our Brentwood Club, as it has outgrown the current location.

Partnerships – We partner with many local organizations to provide greater breadth and depth of programs to Club members. Our newest partner, Wake Tech, has placed a staff member in our Clubs to provide college and workforce readiness programs.

Economic mobility is a challenge for those living in the communities we serve. The Wake Tech partnership provides a “ladder” for our teens to be part of the strong local economy. We strive for every Club member to graduate from high school with a plan for the future.

Mental Health Services and Basic Needs – Mental health has become an increasingly important topic for our Club members. We have added a licensed clinical social worker to support our kids and their families at no cost to them. We continue to provide daily meals at our Washington Elementary Club, despite the loss of government funding for this program. Our culture has always been that when we start something important, we remain committed to it.

Your gift to this campaign is an investment in kids’ futures. Thank you for allowing us to serve more kids and make a meaningful impact on their lives.

Sincerely,

Hunter Brackett, Chair ` Jessica Simmons, Co-chair
