We are currently closed and working to reopen our doors soon!

Help us reach our goal and reopen the Blue Doors in Southern Illinois!

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Southern Illinois (BGCSI) is thrilled to announce the launch of the Blue Door Reopen Campaign. This fundraising initiative aims to raise $600,000, allowing us to reopen our doors and resume serving the youth of Carbondale and Marion.

For over 18 years, the BGCSI has served as a cornerstone of the community, providing a safe haven for children. The Clubs offer educational programs, positive mentorship, and a space where kids can simply be themselves in a thriving environment.

The BGCSI Board of Directors will be reaching out to community members to request their support.

How You Can Help:

Together, we can reach our goal and reopen our doors! While this campaign allows us to reopen, ongoing support through annual fundraising is crucial to sustain operations for both clubs.

With your help, we can unlock a future of opportunity for Southern Illinois youth. Join us on this journey to reopen the Blue Doors and reignite the spark of learning, growth, and potential.
