On February 13th, the Boys & Girls Club of the Perham Area and Empowering Kids Perham are teaming up to raise programming funds and increase awareness through the annual Giving Hearts Day fundraiser.

Leading up to Giving Hearts Day, we will be rallying our community to help us Paint the Town Red by encouraging you, our business partners and community members, to spread the word about our organizations and Giving Hearts Day.

We are promoting and raising awareness together, but donations need to be designated to each organization individually.

Boys & Girls Club of the Perham Area

This fundraiser will be a kick-off for the Boys & Girls Club Great Futures campaign which is the main source of funding support for all Club operations. Funds raised during our annual campaign help our Club provide quality before and after school programs and summer activities for more than 300 youth throughout the year.

The Club’s Giving Hearts Day 2020 campaign goal is $30,000. Dollars raised on Giving Hearts Day through individual contributions and matching gifts will be used to fund scholarships at the Club. Scholarships are used for both school year and summer programming to ensure that our programming is accessible to those who need us most. In 2019, we provided $50,000 in scholarships for youth at our Club.

Our mission is to empower children, families, and the community by providing support and resources to those with autism or social challenges. We are one of the only non-profit organizations located between Moorhead and Minneapolis providing this high quality and affordable service.

Our organization is currently working towards expanding our range of services to include play therapy. By providing this type of therapy, Empowering Kids will be able to increase the hours of service available to children while also billing to insurance. Our Giving Hearts Day goal of $20,000 will go towards funding a licensed mental health professional with a background in autism, which is a requirement of the State and most insurance companies.
