Great Futures Campaign

The Campaign for America's Kids

Our Goal

Invest In Great Futures!

Every day, 15 million kids leave school with no place to go, putting them at risk of being unsupervised, unguided and unsafe. What happens during the hours between school and home can have a dramatic impact on a child’s future. Our Clubs provide access to positive and productive programs as well as caring adult mentors during out-of-school time to help reverse the most negative trends facing our youth. That is why, Great Futures Start Here!
Support the 2016 Great Futures Annual Campaign for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids.

You can make a difference! Your investment in our Clubs stays local and helps us serve the young people of the Cedar Rapids Community more often and in a safe and nurturing environment.
We've increased our goal this year, thanks to a very generous donation!

In the spirit of giving, a couple with ties to the Cedar Rapids area has gifted a total of $750,000 to three local charities. Nan Parks Kocourek and Wayne Kocourek have made these gifts to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cedar Rapids, Tanager Place, and Waypoint in recognition of the dedication and commitment the Parks and McBride families have made to these organizations and their support for women, children and families in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City Area. Nan lived in Cedar Rapids for 35 years and feels a great love for the community. She is grateful for it remaining a wonderful home for her children and twelve grandchildren. Their children include Lura and Ryan McBride, Trevor and Jocelyn Parks, Hunter and Andrea Parks, and Clayton and Kim Parks.

We are honored to receive this generous gift from the Kocourek's and will use it as a match for our “Great Futures Annual Campaign” which provides free yearly memberships to Club members who cannot afford to participate. Some of the funds will be put into their investment account to establish the Nan and Wayne Kocourek Scholarship.  To read more about this wonder gift, please click here.
