The Boys and Girls Club (BGC) is a national non-profit organization geared to provide America’s youth with the tools and skills they need to become healthy adults, responsible citizens, and effective leaders. By bringing parents, neighbors, educators, and civic leaders together with our youth, the BGC believes it can instill these crucial life lessons at an age when they are most needed. The national organization is headquartered in Atlanta, GA, and it serves as a service hub for over 3,700 club locations around the U.S. Each local club is directed by a volunteer board of directors and staffed by professional youth development workers (usually including an executive director, a program director, and an arts director) and many volunteers who just enjoy working with young people and making a difference in their lives. Although the organization is affiliated with the national center, each local BGC is locally funded.
Keeping in mind the importance of the various facets of the general environment to the BGC, discuss the threat to donations caused by the organization’s focus on the victims of natural disasters and how the BGC might respond to this and other threats to donations.
