The Alumni Association of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield was formed to support and further the mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs through various fundraisers and volunteer work. The Alumni Association provides volunteer support for our annual Day for Kids, the Sertoma Chili Cook-Off, and other events as needed. The Alumni Association holds an annual fundraiser, Comedy Capers, with proceeds benefiting the Boys & Girls Club. The group also participates in an annual camping trip and alumni breakfast.

What do all of these people, and millions more throughout America, have in common? They are all alumni of Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
While many Club alumni have achieved particular distinction in fields such as entertainment, business, politics and sports, the average alumnus is not famous. Most have achieved success by getting an education, raising a family, serving their country, pursuing a career or supporting the community.
Millions have benefited from belonging to a Boys & Girls Club since the first Club opened its doors in 1860. Based on research by Louis Harris & Associates, Club alumni have very strong feelings about their individual Club experiences:
- 80% said Club staff helped them learn right from wrong
- 95% indicated the Club was the best thing available in their community
- 52% said participating in the Club “saved my life”
