Club Alum Shaq picked Boys & Girls Clubs of America as his beneficiary because of the impact the nearly 4,600 Clubhouses have on millions of kids each year. Boys & Girls Clubs level the playing field for youth, giving opportunities and empowering youth to have every success in life.

“The Club is the place where it all started for me and a place where I could cultivate my dreams,” said Shaq.

By providing a safe-haven, with caring mentors, and life enhancing programs, Club kids thrive. They plan for great futures, learning skills for success. They reach their potential and emerge prepared for all sorts of possibilities–ready to impact the world. 

Our mission is to change the opportunity equation for millions of kids who may not receive the same chance as their peers – sometimes because of their economic status, color of their skin, or other factors that contribute to the cycles of inequity in America today. 

We believe that together as a nation, we must demand change to support Black people and anyone who faces systemic prejudices. 

Black Lives Matter. It matters what we do today. It matters that we speak up.
