We inspire and enable all young people, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive, responsible and caring citizens.
Part of the community since 1891, Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco (BGCSF) currently serves 1,634 youth (ages 6-18) per day. We serve more than 19,000 youth per year at eight Clubhouses located in the neighborhoods with the fewest resources, one extension site, four school-based sites and Camp Mendocino, a 2,000-acre residential summer camp that provides a creative and fun outdoor experience for youth. We are open “when kids need us most” – after school, on most school holidays and during the summer. We offer safe places where young people can learn, grow, and succeed.
Our Commitment to Transparency
We are proud to have received a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management and proven commitment to accountability and transparency. Only 25% of evaluated charities receive this distinction, indicating that Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco outperforms many other charities in America.
