YOU ARE AMAZING!
Ann Yokouchi, Charity Challenge sponsor and BGCM Board Secretary.
"I want to
thank everyone for their dedicated support in our Charity Challenge. It was an
amazing ride and although we did not win the contest, we won in the hearts of
many of you! It was so heart-warming to see how
this community came together in support of the Boys and Girls Clubs of Maui.
I know because of you, many people are now aware of what the Boys and Girls
Clubs of Maui do for the kids. We at Windermere Valley Isle Properties are
humbled and proud to
call Maui our home."
Official results will be announced on
Tuesday, April 8.
We at the Boys & Girls Clubs are so grateful for Leslie-Ann and for all of our community's amazing support, unwavering enthusiasm, and outpouring of Aloha for our keiki.
A heartfelt thank you to all of you for being caring supporters.
We'd love to show you around one of our six Clubhouses. Contact Kim at email@example.com to arrange a tour.
Mahalo for being a part of the BGCM 'ohana.

SAP Donates More Than $58,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui
Robert Enslin, President of SAP Global Customer Operations , presented Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui Chief Professional Officer, Colin Hanlon, a check for more than $58,000 at SAP’s employee Winners’ Circle gathering in Wailea in February 2014. The donation was made on behalf of its 1000+ employees who supported and ran in SAP’s 1-mile and 3-mile Aloha Run activities. SAP proudly hosts this benefit activity to give back to the local community during its annual company incentive trip.
"The World's Greatest Athlete," decathlon Olympian and Oahu native Brian Clay
was on-hand to provide motivation to the runners and kick off the Aloha Run.
SAP also donated two NBA portable basketball goals and other sporting equipment to BGCM. In addition, Under Armour, an SAP customer, donated one hundred sports balls to the Clubs.
This is the second occasion that BGCM has benefited from SAP’s generosity. In 2012, SAP donated $35,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui.
Mahalo, SAP, for your continued partnership and generous support of our youth!
Four key characteristics define the essence of a Boys & Girls Club. All are critical in exerting a positive impact on the life of a child.
Dedicated youth facilities – Boys & Girls Clubs are places -- actual neighborhood-based buildings -- designed solely for youth programs and activities.
Open when kids need us most – The Clubs are open weekdays after school and during the summer when kids have free time and need positive, productive outlets.
Professional staff – Every Club is directed by trained youth development professionals who act as role models and mentors to members. Volunteers provide key supplementary support.
Available and affordable to all youth – For only $5 per year, any child between the ages of 9 and 17 can become a member. We do not discriminate based on gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity, or income. We also offer scholarship programs. We partner with MEO Youth Transportation to provide transportation free of charge to and from the club.
How We Help Kids Succeed: Boys & Girls Clubs offer proven programs that help youth gain the developmental assets they need to succeed in life. Members participate in a variety of programs in the following Core Program Areas:
The mission of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui is to inspire and enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens.
Support your local Boys & Girls Clubs of Maui -- six safe, positive neighborhood centers providing after-school and summer programs for young people between the ages of 6-18 years old.
