The Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie announces the launch of its Eli Lilly Match Campaign, running April 1st through May 31st. The Eli Lilly Foundation and the Boys & Girls Clubs Indiana Alliance have partnered together to create a lasting impact on the state of Indiana. This partnership includes a $30 million statewide grant to all 31 Boys & Girls Clubs.

This campaign is an opportunity for donors to double the impact of their contributions. In Muncie and Delaware County, Eli Lilly will match donations to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie dollar for dollar up to $100,000, effectively doubling the resources available to uplift and empower the youth of Delaware County.

“We are thrilled that the Eli Lilly Foundation has chosen to invest in Boys & Girls Clubs all over Indiana,” said Jason Newman, CEO of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie. “Our programs work to expand opportunities for our kids in school, their health, and their character.”

The funds raised through the Eli Lilly Match Campaign will directly support the Boys & Girls Clubs of Muncie’s mission in four main areas. The areas include Madison Street Improvement, which will enhance the area students, and programming at The Gathering Site, which serves Delaware Community Club for a safe and welcoming space for Muncie School students. The third focus is on the Summer Camp Experience that is available to youth throughout East Central Indiana. The fourth area is overall Youth Programming throughout the year including tutoring, mentoring, and support for families.

By investing in these vital areas, the organization will continue to equip young people with the skills, confidence, and support network necessary to overcome obstacles and achieve their full potential.
