Great Futures Capital Campaign

Building Great Futures Together


About the Project

Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Salt Lake is expanding its services in two of Salt Lake County’s fastest growing neighborhoods – the Murray and the Fair Park communities – where youth are particularly at risk.  These expansions will provide a safe place for youth and teens and give them an opportunity at a Great Future that might otherwise be out of their reach without the help of Boys & Girls Clubs. 
 

Capitol West
The Capitol West Club is operating well beyond the capacity of our outdated and inefficient facility.  Operating over capacity adversely affects the quality of programming and the safety of youth and staff.  To remedy this, we plan to construct a new building just two blocks from our current location - still within walking distance of West High School.  The new building will be designed with all the elements of a modern Clubhouse and allow for growth from 110 to up to 250 youth per day.
 

Murray Expansion
The Murray Club has an extensive waiting list and youth turned away due to lack of space. The planned expansion will increase the program space available for over 100 additional elementary aged youth and allow for modern upgrades to the Teen Center.  The expansion will include a Learning Center, STEAM Lab (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math), multi-purpose classrooms, and a safe lobby entrance with control desk.
Please join us in building great futures together:

Success begins with a place –a place to belong! Jeniya, our 2018 Youth of the Year, found his place when he was just five years old and he walked into the doors of our Capitol West Club. While his young life at home was full of violence, loss, and instability, Jeniya found safety, guidance, and the support he needed to succeed at the Club.  He is now preparing to graduate from high school, has received multiple scholarships, and wants to be an astrophysicist!  Listen to Jeniya tell his story in the video below.

You can give a place to tomorrow's youth of the year...donate today.
