For many in our community, quality higher education remains out of reach. Rising tuition costs and reduced financial aid moves the starting line even further away from the many youth we serve, pushing their dreams even further away. Fortunately, you have the power to make an impact and help our members attend college and fulfill their dreams.

The Englewood community in Chicago has a rich history and proud residents. However, like many communities on Chicago’s South Side, there’s a lot of work to be done. That’s where Union League Boys & Girls Clubs comes in. We have been expanding our presence in the Englewood Community. In 2017, with the help of our committed supporters, launched an aggressive campaign to ensure that when it comes to the Englewood community, Union League Boys & Girls Clubs is here to stay. Our 5-year, $5 million campaign can only succeed with your help, as with the nearly 900 youth and teens we serve in Englewood each year.
