Funding Our Programs

How Your Donations Help

Against the backdrop of an unsafe neighborhood stands Off The Street Club, where kids get the chance to be kids. Your generosity provides the youth of West Garfield Park with a safe, welcoming, and fun place to go.

Sports and Athletics

Many kids rely on Off The Street Club for a safe place to play, run, and exercise. When they’re at the Club, they get a chance to act like kids and participate in sports like basketball or flag football.

Education and Mentoring

Our kids deserve an encouraging environment to continue learning outside of school. Donations help fund our mentoring and tutoring programs as well as the computer center for afterschool homework.

Music, Art, and New Activities

We see a lot of firsts around here. The New Horizons Program offers kids the chance to tour museums and theaters, go bowling or skating, or see a baseball game.

Summer Camp

Off The Street Club sends kids to Camp Mathieu every year for summertime fun, including swimming, camping, nature study, and more.

Casual Joy

If nothing else, Off The Street Club provides a sanctuary for kids to smile, laugh, and experience Casual Joy.

Join the McMurray-Campagna Heritage Society

We’ve built a modest endowment with the help of yearly pledge drives and individual donations, but unexpected events or an economic downturn could easily threaten our ability to continue helping Chicago youth.

Those who are able to designate Off The Street Club in their estate become a member of the McMurray-Campagna Heritage Society. This group makes it possible for kids to continue to learn and thrive in a safe and welcoming environment, through good economic times and bad.
