Charting Impact

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

Self-reported by organization

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Our vision for the future is a Kips Bay Boys & Girls Club that assists young people in realizing and achieving their full potential for growth and development, and in attaining the skills necessary to live and succeed in a complex modern world. We know that there are serious challenges affecting young people today. For example, in our own local community:

    A 2012 report by the Annenberg Institute for School Reform found that 90% of 5 Bronx neighborhoods where Kips Bay operates are not prepared for college-level work by the end of high school
    On New York State standardized test in 2013, only 26.4% of 3rd-8th grade students met the proficiency standards in English Language Arts (ELA). In School District 8, where the majority of Kips Bay members are students, the figure attaining proficiency drops to 15.85%.


    Nationally, 15% of school-age children are obese, as reported by the United States Surgeon General. Nearby Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx reports that, of 50,000 visits to the pediatric clinic, 50% of patients are obese.
    In 2010, the U.S. Census reported that the Bronx is the most diverse county in the United States.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Based on the challenges listed, we know that we need to be doing even more to address our community's changing needs. We will strengthen and increase high school, vocational, and college preparatory programming with activities in career awareness and mentoring, college readiness and visits, and SAT preparation.

    We know from our outcome surveys that membership in Kips Bay correlates strongly with success in school, and that students in our local community need our help to prepare them for high school and beyond. We will work to reach more youngsters and bolster educational programming in the vital areas of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). We recently initiated nutrition education and obesity prevention programs, and we intend to continue to expand and enhance this important facet of our programming.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Endowment growth is needed to provide the financial stability to ensure program continuation, proper maintenance and enhancement of our facilities, and the ability to carry out multi-year initiatives. We strive to strengthen our endowment to ensure support for programming of the highest quality in perpetuity in state-of-the-art facilities, allowing us to serve our community for our next 100 years. This will also support the key improvement we hope to make to our facilities, ensuring that our members have access to the best possible athletic and recreational opportunities.

    We seek to raise funds to address these key priorities. We undertake these vital projects to better offer our members first-rate facilities and programs to prepare them for all stages of life and their education. The breakdown of our fundraising goal is as follows:

    Increased Endowment
    Cost: $7,000,000
    New educational programming
    Cost: $1,500,000
    Enhanced Athletic Facilities
    Cost: $1,500,000
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Our ultimate goal is to serve more youth, year over year. We have born witness to the power of philanthropy in action over our first century of service. From our initial founding to clean up a troubled neighborhood and provide its youngest citizens with opportunity to our most recent expansion to a difficult area of the West Bronx, we have seen what the opening and expansion of our service sites can do to a community and its members. We have been the beneficiary of many of New York's most committed philanthropists, and we can continue to impact communities in the Bronx for another 100 years with the help of our friends, supporters, and all concerned citizens.
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    Milestones in the Club's history since moving to the Bronx include:

    Expanding the flagship headquarters, now the Lucile Palmaro Clubhouse, in 1976 and 1984 to accommodate growing membership and to add a swimming pool and an auditorium, and again in the 1990s to add many of the large and varied athletic facilities that are there today.

    In partnership with HELP (Housing Enterprise for the Less Privileged), initiating on-site Boys & Girls Club services at two homeless shelters in 1998, the first Club in the national Boys & Girls Club movement to do so.

    Completing the Frederic R. Coudert Sports Complex in 2002, which features the only ice rink in the Bronx.

    Acquiring two new service venues in 2005 in New York City Housing Authority Community Centers - Castle Hill Houses and Throggs Neck Houses.

    Acquiring a renewable lease to Camp Sebago in 2006, which brings the time-honored benefits of rustic camping to hundreds of urban youngsters every year.

    The Club added its 10th service venue in June 2010, when the Frederic R. & Margaret Coudert Clubhouse opened in the West Bronx Heights, a location terribly underserved by social services for children. Now, the Clubhouse is on pace to enroll 2,000 members annually by 2018. This Clubhouse is the first Boys & Girls Club to serve the area, which recorded an unemployment rate of more than 13% in 2012, the highest in the New York City metropolitan area. The state-of-the-art 28,000 square foot facility provides the latest in technology and included a gym, a performance space, a dedicated floor for our youngest group of members who are 6-to-9 years old, a games room, and an education floor with a computer lab.

ORGANIZATIONAL DEMOGRAPHICS

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
