How You Can Help

Violet Ripken (Vi) an extraordinary woman full of compassion and heart, gives a great deal to the community and creates a positive environment for our precious youth. Living in Aberdeen, Vi knew that something needed to be done to improve the lives of children from disadvantaged circumstances in Harford County. To provide hope and opportunities for youth, she helped establish a Boys & Girls Club of America presence in the county that became a model for Clubs around the state.

Your support through The Violet Society helps us provide every child with the life-enhancing experiences that enable today’s youth to conquer tomorrow’s challenges. Your donation will be useful to local Boys & Girls Clubs by making it possible to hire and train new staff, implement effective programs, and keep dues low so every child can join. Help us continue to make a bright future for our kids by donating to our Clubs in Aberdeen, Bel Air, Edgewood and Harve de Grace.

The Violet Society, formed in 2007, was created to honor donors and increase their involvement with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County. Individuals who donate a minimum of $1,000 annually to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County will be recognized through membership in The Violet Society. Once in the society, the amount you chose to donate will automatically be pledged each year to ensure the Clubs encouraging future.

All donations will be used to support youth development programs at our Clubs in Aberdeen, Bel Air, Edgewood, and Havre de Grace.

You can make your donation of $1000 or more by sending a check or money order to:

Boys & Girls Clubs of Harford County
100 E. Bel Air Ave
