The Club Receives $30,000 Grant from the Musgrave Foundation
Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield received a $30,000 grant from the Musgrave Foundation and Community Foundation of the Ozarks for the Reach- Workforce Readiness Program that will launch in August, alongside the opening of the O’Reilly Unit at Williams Elementary. This marks the first round of a three year grant period, which will aim to provide equitable access to workforce readiness opportunities for traditionally under-reached and under-served populations of youth in Springfield.
Through this program, Boys & Girls Club will work to ensure that every youth who walks through its doors graduates on time, with a plan for the future. Through a whole-family approach, the Reach program will work to diminish generational poverty.
Since its inception, the Musgrave Foundation has awarded grants totaling more than $15 million to selected charities in Springfield and southwest Missouri. The charitable legacy of Mrs. Jeanette Musgrave is sustained by Community Foundation of the Ozarks. Boys & Girls Clubs of Springfield is one of eight local non-profit organizations, which received funds during this grant cycle.
We are thankful for our sponsors!
