Boys & Girls Clubs of Philadelphia understands that our youth need access to a safe, supportive learning environment even when schools cannot open their doors. In response to the school closures resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, BGCP is operating 15 Access Centers to support youth during the virtual school day. Our Access Center follow all COVID-19 safety guidelines including sanitation practices, social distancing, and mask wearing. All Access Centers are equipped with WiFi Access, and caring professional youth development staff. Youth attending Access Centers will receive free breakfast, lunch, and snack daily, and individual supply kits. In addition to providing support for virtual learning, our Access Centers engage youth in Literacy and STEM Enrichment, and recreational programs to support academic, social, and emotional health during this difficult time.

For the entire year of 2020, the limitation on how much of your charitable donations you can deduct against your income, no matter who you are or how much you give, has been lifted. Previously, it was a maximum of 60% for cash donations and 50% for non-cash contributions, however, now you can give and deduct without limitations.
Dear Friends and Leaders,
In the best interest of the kids,
Lisabeth and Joseph Marziello
