At a November reception for donors and supporters, the Boys & Girls Club of Danville and the Community Foundation jointly announced that the Boys & Girls Club of Danville Endowment has been established. The endowment fund was started with $20,000 in donations from two anonymous donors. Commitment for another generous gift to the fund from Dr. Joseph Fabrizio & Mrs. Phyllis Dougherty-Fabrizio was announced at the event.
Executive Director Rob Gifford said that the fund is an investment in the long-term sustainability of the Club as a vital resource in the Danville community. The Community Foundation has accepted several additional donations to the fund since the event. Endowments grow over time from all gifts—both large and small—and the Boys & Girls Club of Danville appreciates all donations.
