In anticipation of a surge in demand for community services driven by a population influx from housing development, the leadership of the Boys & Girls Club of Benton and Franklin Counties sought to expand its Prosser Clubhouse. The goal was to fully meet the needs of underserved youth in the area and address the space limitations of its existing facilities. A new, larger building would enable the Prosser Club to provide elementary and teen programs under the same roof and accommodate a projected 52% increase in daily visits.
After NGA conducted a capital campaign feasibility study, it was evident that the community highly valued the Boys & Girls Club's presence and impact. Notably, there were few instances of major gifts campaigns by other organizations in the area, and this would be the Prosser Club's first multi-million-dollar campaign. To support the club’s goals, we formulated a strategic campaign that focused on recruiting philanthropic leadership and providing expert guidance in identifying key lead donors.
With an original campaign goal of $4.1 million, the Prosser Club is just $100,000 from reaching its increased goal of $5.1 million. The new building will enable the Prosser Club to fully meet the growing needs of the community, providing a space for local kids and teens to reach their full potential.
“We have worked with Netzel Grigsby Associates on two feasibility studies and two campaigns in the last five years. Their expertise and approach have allowed us to compete projects efficiently, and I have no doubt that we have increased funds raised due to their strategic approach. We appreciate their support!”
