The Black Canyon Boys and Girls Club (BCBGC) announced recently that it has received a $300,000 Daniels Fund grant to support the BCBGC’s capital campaign. The capital campaign, launched in May of 2019, is to build a larger, permanent facility for the BCBGC. At present, the BCBGC is leasing a facility which only has the capacity to serve, prior to COVID-19 restrictions, 100 members a day. This limitation has led to the BCBGC to have a two-three year waiting list ranging between 60-75 youths.
“This grant will help enable the BCBGC to reach its goal of building a new facility that is our own and ending the waiting list for kids to become members. With this grant, the BCBGC hopes to break ground on its new facility by the end of 2021,” said BCBGC Executive Director, Bud Taylor.
“This grant gets us one step closer to our dream of making great futures start here for all kids who want to become members and not telling them they have to wait,” said BCBGC President Sherry Kammerer.
The Daniels Fund, established by cable television pioneer Bill Daniels, is a private charitable foundation dedicated to making life better for the people of Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Wyoming through its grants program, scholarship program, and ethics initiative.
