Through the generosity of local individuals and businesses more than 75 percent of the necessary funds have been raised to construct a new 33,900 square foot Boys & Girls Club facility in Noblesville , in order to meet the growth and expanding needs of young people in Hamilton County.
To raise the additional needed funds, the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville’s Capital Campaign Committee has announced a final push and an offer to interested contributors to participate in a Contribution Matching program. Individuals and businesses that donate a minimum of $100 between now and Sept. 23 will have their donation doubled up to $25,000.
This matching program is being made possible by a contribution from Beth and Terry Henderson.
“After visiting the Boys & Girls Club, we have been thoroughly impressed with the organization, its contributions to the youth of our community and how our investment will be utilized,” Terry Henderson s tated. “We wanted to do our part to support this important initiative for local youth.”
The new facility will allow for enhanced programming through the addition of a dedicated cafeteria, outdoor green space, and performing arts stage along with the ability to expand programming for children in Kindergarten to 12th grade. Since 2010, the Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville has witnessed a 22 percent increase in membership. Once construction is completed, 53 percent more youth will have the ability to participate.
“The success of this project will give us the ability to serve more youth and provide additional programming to meet their needs and interests. The investments being made into the lives of our young people by generous donors in the community, such as the Henderson’s, will allow us to expand our reach and deepen our impact,” stated Becky Terry, Executive Director, Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville.
Luke and Sally Kenley are co-chair people for the capital campaign committee charged with raising the funds to build this much needed facility. The Boys & Girls Club of Noblesville has secured $4.5M of its $6M goal for construction of the new building adjacent to the current Community Center. The construction of this new building will support the growing membership that the Club has been experiencing.
