Disney’s relationship with Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) has spanned more than 50 years. As early as 1963, Walt Disney served as an honorary member of the Board of Directors and did a public service announcement for the “Boys Club,” the official name of the organization at the time. In recent years, Disney has donated millions in financial and in-kind donations as well as volunteer services to support Boys & Girls Clubs of America.
