Darden Foundation support to BGCA's DEI initiatives have been instrumental in their financial support. Year 2 of our Sponsorship includes programmatic support for Spillet University Learning Institutes, sponsoring our Youth for Unity Activity Guides, and also pass through funding to 16 Clubs. Darden Restaurants, Inc. will also be the Title Sponsor for BGCA's National Conference this May 2023 in Orlando, FL.
Darden Foundation is finishing up year 2 of our partnership. We are already well underway for year 3 discussions and what the next iteration of their DEI support and funding will provide to our Clubs. Funding has encouraged Clubs to complete their DEI Organizational Assessments as well as participation to cohorts for our Youth for Unity Acitivity guides.
Every day, 15 million kids leave school with no place to go.
