Partners contribute $5,000 each year for a suggested three-year period. That contribution funds constructive activities and programs for children each year, which our partners know has a direct impact:

“We believe every child deserves an opportunity to have positive influences and experiences in their life. Strong roots develop who we are and who we will become. As a Partner For The Future, we hope to positively impact children’s lives in our community. We strongly support the mission of the Boys & Girls Club of Central Minnesota. Children are our future, we believe in investing in them!”

“It seems pretty obvious that a child who is given support, love and opportunity is going to turn out just fine. To me, that is the business of our local Boys & Girls Club. Young people are our future. Do right by them now and our future is assured. Don’t do right by them and we are in trouble.”

–Mark and Ann Thelen


“We are enthusiastic supporters of the Boys & Girls Club because Club programs have demonstrated success in enabling vulnerable young people to become responsible citizens. “Sine Labore Nullum Praemium’ (Without work there is no reward) is the Vox family motto that dates back to the early nineteenth century and is illustrative of the values promoted by the Club.”

–Tom & Nansi Vos


“Health Partners Central Minnesota Clinic is pleased to support the Boys & Girls Club. By promoting healthy activities and engaging children in positive behaviors it nurtures their own well-being. These are skills important to succeed in life.”
