The Staples Foundation supports programming aimed at keeping Boys & Girls Club youth on track to graduate
Stopping Summer Learning Loss
Boys & Girls Clubs of America has had a partnership with Staples and the Staples Foundation since 2002. During that time, the Staples Foundation has committed more than $10 million dollars to Boys & Girls Clubs.
Since 2014, Staples has supported BGCA’s Summer Brain Gain program, which is designed to curb summer learning loss. Staples has also provided incremental support to BGCA through other channels, including in-store promotions and marketing events. Staples has partnered with local Boys & Girls Clubs throughout the nation through their 2 Million & Change grant funding program, which awards grants to local Clubs who have been nominated by local Staples stores, as well as through event sponsorships, in-kind donations and associate volunteerism.
