How Can You Help?

One Campaign
One Campaign is our annual giving campaign designated for our general operating costs. The money is used to run the Oakhurst Club. Many individuals and local companies make a charitable contribution to our organization every year because they believe that Boys & Girls Club makes a positive difference in our community. To sponsor one child in our programs for a year, it costs only $300. Please consider making a gift and helping us offer hope to the children in our community. To send a contribution in the mail, please send it to:

It just takes ONE Campaign
PO Box 2757
Oakhurst, CA 93644

To make a contribution by credit card or PayPal, click on “Donate Now” to the left.

Last year our Clubs benefited tremendously from in-kind car donations. If you have a car, truck, boat or other vehicle that you would like to donate to benefit Boys & Girls Clubs please contact J. Doss at 559-642-4600 or email: bgclub@sti.net

Become a Club Volunteer
The Club always has a need for caring community minded people to share their talents, skills and positive outlook on life. Some of the areas we need volunteers are:

Tutoring in all subjects
Sports & Recreation
Computer Instruction
Fine Arts
Outdoor & Environmental Education
Games & Activities

Individuals interested in becoming a volunteer at our Club are required to go through a background check and screening process. This process will give you an idea of how the Club functions and it will also help us learn a little about you and your reasons for becoming a volunteer. To start making a difference in the lives of children, please call (559) 642-4600 or come by our Club to request a volunteer application. Applications are also available for download in the “Files & Forms” section of this site. To begin the application process, please:

Fill out the volunteer application form, and return it in person to our Program Director.
Take a tour of the facility. You will learn about the various programs and the daily schedules will be explained to you. In addition, you will have an opportunity to meet some of the members.
In addition, a short interview with our Unit Director or Program Director will provide you an opportunity to ask questions and determine what kind of availability you have.
To find out further information or if you have questions please call J. Doss at 559-642-4600 or email him at bgclub@sti.net.
