Ways to Give
Today, something will happen in our community, just as it does every school day throughout the year. Closing bells will ring and our area schools will start dismissing roughly 14,000 students throughout the community. Some will go home, some will go to an after school program.
An investment in the Don Moyer Boys & Girls Club literally changes lives. You can give time, donate money, and even help us spread the word— whatever works. It all makes a difference.
Help make a difference all year round by setting up a monthly gift. Set up is quick and easy, any amount you choose can be automatically charged to your credit card.
No matter its size, each gift makes a difference. When you contribute, your generosity supports the Club, our Kids, and helps build greater futures.
Honorary or Memorial Gifts
A gift to the Don Moyer Boys & Girls Club is a great way to celebrate a milestone or honor a friend or loved one . Donations may be made in any amount and are fully tax-deductible.
If you would like to leave a legacy gift to help Don Moyer Boys & Girls Club serve the Kids who need us most, please contact Sam Banks, the Executive Director at 217-355-5437.
Working with kids, teaching, mentoring, coaching, & caring:
Our staff is dedicated to working with our volunteers to make sure that our children get the individualized attention that they need. Consider working as a homework helper, tutor, coach, games supervisor, party organizer or mentor.
Fundraising events: Help us to raise money or get involved with an event.
Don Moyer Boys & Girls Club currently runs different events to raise money for the organization. This allows us to charge only a $20 membership fee while still running a great selection of programs. We need people to work on event planning, event sponsorship, public relations, event operations, and a variety of other tasks. It's fun and it supports a great cause.
Facilities improvement: Lend us a hand to keep our facility in great condition.
We strive to keep our building in great shape, so that our children can be proud to be a part of our facility. Help with building clean-ups, landscaping and upgrading is needed. Special skills like carpentry and plumbing are also needed.
