Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Club aims to provide an impact in the lives of the youth we serve. A positive and resourceful Club experience that includes programming that measures its effectiveness while equipping our youth with the skills to advance in life.

1. Recruit, Train and Retain strong youth development professionals.\r\n2. Provide the needed supplies and equipment for our staff and kids to thrive in. \r\n3. Raise dollars and restrict them for program/staff development.

The Club has put a dedicated management team in place. A Board under development who are committed to the success of the organization.

The Club is under the leadership of a CEO who has been in the Boys & Girls Club movement for 13 years. Has been with this organization for 8 and a half years. The Club is in the process of creating an impacting Club experience for all. We successfully re-opened the Club on June 1st, 2020 after closing for 75 days due to COVID-19. On June 1st when we re-opened we were the first Boys & Girls Club to re-open in Bergen County.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
