The Boys & Girls Clubs of the Capital Area (BGCCA) provides safe havens for young people by offering quality programs and critical relationships with nurturing and reliable adults. Boys & Girls Clubs give their members access to dedicated, trained professionals who can provide guidance in adopting healthy lifestyles and pursuing educational objectives.
Our Holiday Match donation will help expand their workforce development programs, music programs and sports and recreation programs.
The Boys & Girls club equips young people with the skill they need to resolve conflicts peacefully, improve relationships with every aspect of their day-to-day lives and function as responsible citizens.

About Holiday Match
This program started 36 years ago to specifically benefit organizations/programs for kids under the age of 18 in the areas of social services, health, education, recreations, and the arts.
To date, with the help of our customers, we have raised over $34 million for local children’s charities. We collect donations in our shops from Thanksgiving Day through Christmas Day. We match our customers’ donations dollar for dollar, with no administrative fees. In 2021, together we raised $2 million.
Your Donation Goes Further
Unlike most charitable programs, the Holiday Match has zero administrative fees. The program only accepts cash donations which eliminates credit card processing fees; and 100% of the donations are allocated for children’s charity groups. Also unlike other charities, EVERY SINGLE DOLLAR is matched, which means your donations are actually doubled. And personal checks are accepted.
Without the generosity of our customers, the Stewart’s Holiday Match Program wouldn’t be possible, we humbly thank you for your support!
Thank you to all of our media partners for helping to spread the Holiday Match message.
