How Much Has Been Raised?
Since its inception in 2008, MCLF has raised over $1.1 million dollars. This includes direct contributions and the procurement of donations made to the MCLF’s primary beneficiary, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware.
How Have the Funds Been Used?
Ninety-three percent of the MCLF’s expenditures go directly to support programs that make a difference in the lives of children. The remaining seven percent are fundraising costs and administration costs paid directly to the Delaware Community Foundation.
The MCLF has renovated three sets of Learning & Skills Centers at the Clarence Fraim, H. Fletcher Brown and New Castle Boys & Girls Clubs. These Centers include renovated facilities, new modular furniture and state-of-the-art technology. The desktop computers, laptops, iPads, flat screen televisions and Smart Boards found in these Centers provide kids with access to technology to help bridge the “Digital Divide.”
The MCLF supports two programs at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Delaware. Last year, the Mike’s TEAM mentoring program served over 150 kids in its one-on-one and group mentoring chapters. In spring of 2015, the BOSS entrepreneurship and app development program helped kids think critically and creatively about real world problems.
The MCLF hosts its annual Mike Clark Memorial Ride (MCMR) to raise funds to support its mission to help kids. As a legacy organization, the MCLF has also established an endowment within its sponsoring agency, the Delaware Community Foundation (DCF). This endowment will provide for the implementation of the MCLF’s mission in the future.
