Graduate for Mas is Back!

One June 15th, we will celebrate our graduating seniors and the end of another productive school year with our annual Gradutae for Mas Party, sponsored by the Taco Bell Foundation. Members will get to enjoy exciting field day challenges, make candy lei's and enjoy dinner provided by Taco Bell. 

“Graduation season is our favorite time of year. We’ve watched the young men and women in our community work so hard to get to this point and it’s a thrill to share in their joy of earning that diploma,” said Boys & Girls Clubs CEO, Kimberly Key. “We appreciate the Taco Bell® Foundation for recognizing and celebrating our new grads and committing to our future ones through the Foundation’s long-term support right in Sacramento.”

The grant to Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento is part of a partnership between the Taco Bell® Foundation and Boys & Girls Clubs of America to support more young people through high school graduation and beyond.


“We founded the Taco Bell Foundation to invest in youth and to ignite their futures, starting with graduation. These youth are our customers, friends, families, employees and our future leaders,” said Frank Tucker Chief People Officer at Taco Bell and President for the Taco Bell Foundation. “Our partnership with Boys & Girls Clubs of America provides an opportunity to deliver on our commitment to ensure youth are empowered to graduate from high school and go onto pursue their dreams. We’re proud of the effort put forth by every youth being honored at this wonderful event.”

BGC in the Bee:
Bingo! Big jump in players behind major gift to Boys & Girls Club

(July 28, 2016) "Sacramento Consolidated Charities, a fundraising legacy left to Sacramento by Dick and Lynn Gury, gives roughly $1.25 million annually to regional nonprofits, but earlier this week, the organization made what board Chairman Kevin Beers believes is its largest one-time donation: $200,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento."

(August 5, 2016) It was brought to our attention that individuals from a company called PS Circulation LLC are going door to door in East Sacramento seeking donations of cash and used books for Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento. This is a scam, and we know nothing about this company or the individuals doing this. We have filed a scam report with the Better Business Bureau. Please do not give them any donations, and let us know if you are solicited by them.

Comstock's Highlight our PG&E Summer Interns


(July 28, 2016) The first time Margarita Armijo applied for a job, the 16-year-old took one look at the application requirements and said to herself, “What’s a resume?”

But landing her current summer internship went much smoother, thanks to the PG&E Summer Jobs Program, now in its fourth year at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento.

“If you’re given that hand of help, you should take it,” says Armijo, a junior at Hiram Johnson High School in Sacramento. She is one of two interns assigned to work at a children’s summer camp held at Sacramento Food Bank & Family Services.

For Armijo, the oldest of 12 children, “It’s just in my nature to help out with kids.” (Read more on Comstock's)

Sacramento Bee Honors Fred Teichert


(June 27, 2016) Philanthropist and civic leader Fred Teichert didn’t know when he began his quest to bring the Boys & Girls Club to Sacramento that the nonprofit organization had been trying since before the Great Depression to open a site in the only state capital and big city where it had no presence.

“They’d been trying to start what was at the time, Boys Club, since 1927,” Teichert said. “I thought we were just the first ones to have this great idea, but that wasn’t true. What was amazing to me was they had picked a site that was maybe less than a mile from the one on Lemon Hill, where the Teichert Branch is.” Read more in our Press Room.
