A small gift can make a big difference for these students

Give Warmth to a Playmakers Student

When you sign up to donate monthly (no minimum!), we will gift a Playmakers Student a pair of gloves!

Every contribution, big or small, gives us the ability to continue our mission of helping at-risk students in under-served communities. For our students, a pair of gloves can make life just a little more comfortable when walking to school or going outside for fitness activities.

One of our Character components teaches students to give back to their communities. Your support becomes an investment in the community – changing the culture on the school campus, and at home.

Thank you to all the Rotary Clubs that help us reach more students

Thank you to our local Rotary Clubs

Rotarians in the Sacramento region are changing young lives in disadvantaged communities.

Mike Daly, with the Rotary Club of Rancho Cordova-Sunrise has been involved with our program for the last 5 years. They were one of the first Rotary Clubs to sign on and sponsor our program on a local campus. We now have involvement with almost a dozen civic clubs in the area who are supporting our program in one way or another. Words are not enough to express our gratitude, we are building the next generation of Rotary.

Mike tells us, “You are taking an element of society, of culture, children who are underachieving in reading and struggling with learning, and you bring them to a place of confidence of achievement. And then through the character component when they come out, they learn the issue of conflict resolution, and they’re more confident in themselves, take on more challenges and it just seems that overall they get to be a more well-rounded, a more competent person. How does this help the community? You have less trouble in schools, less trouble in communities, and in families because they are learning to deal with issues in a better way.”

Why Civic Groups are important to Playmakers

One of our missions is to teach the pay it forward philosophy of volunteering to the next generation. We want to instill a pride in serving community, and being a contributing team member.

We would like to express our heart-felt thank you to each service club that has shown support for The Playmakers through the years.

The Optimists and Rotarians that support our mission are allowing us to help give disadvantaged youth the power to change their world. Through leadership and character-building exercises, we are seeing a difference in kids who have had a history of behavior issues and a lack of focus. The students are responding with heartwarming acts of kindness that are making a difference in the mindset of the campus.

We invite you to visit our program so you can see in person how the coaches at our Playmakers Academy are building positivity into the Lil’ Pups they supervise.

The Sacramento region has more non-profits thank any other city on the west coast. We appreciate you may have many causes close to your heart. For Big Day of Giving 2017, would you be able to commit to our minimum $15 level?  Our goal is that every single dollar will be matched by one or more of the Optimist and Rotary supporters.
