The Boys & Girls of Southwest Washington received a $179,425 gift from the Ed and Dollie Lynch Fund to hire someone to oversee human resource management for the nonprofit.
With eight fully staffed club sites in Clark County serving nearly 4,000 youth annually, Executive Director Francisco Bueno said the 20-year-old nonprofit is “at a critical point in our history and growth.”
The multiyear grant from the Lynch Fund held at the Community Foundation for Southwest Washington will cover a new position called the director of people.
“The new director of people is an important addition to our leadership team with a focus on engaging, developing and supporting staff and volunteers to provide high quality after-school hours programs we have become known for in the local community,” Bueno said in a news release. “We are most grateful that the advisers of the Ed and Dollie Lynch Fund understand our immediate need and the potential of our long-term vision. This gift is a critical part of making that vision happen.”
