The Don Fisher Clubhouse

Early in 2012, the San Francisco Board of Supervisors voted 11-0 in favor of selling us a parcel of land for this new Clubhouse. In March 2013, The Planning Commission approved the project in a 7-0 vote. A groundbreaking ceremony took place on November 1, 2013 and the Grand Opening should occur by early 2015!

About the Campaign

Willie Mays Clubhouse Grand Opening

Our Brighter Futures Capital Campaign is designed to help address the growing challenges facing inner-city children and their families, including staggering high-school drop-out rates, gangs, crime, drugs, and juvenile violence.

Campaign resources continue to go toward giving San Francisco youth the safest and best possible spaces to learn and grow – as well as the experiences, programs, and guidance to help prepare them for their futures. “All of our campaign projects coalesce to help develop a generation of young people who are educated and job-ready, with strong values and great social skills, who will build a healthy workforce and a strong community,” said Rocky Fried, co-chair of the campaign.

Camp Mendocino

Thanks to the Brighter Futures Campaign, we opened the state-of-the-art Willie Mays Boys & Girls Club at Hunters Point in June 2008 and fully renovated the 80-year old Mission Clubhouse in 2010.  We have also made extensive repairs to Camp Mendocino , our beloved summer camp located 3.5 hours North of San Francisco in the redwoods.  The Camp serves 1,200 youth each summer, during 10-day sessions, and employees over 50 teens and many Club alums.
