BGCMP’s Economic Impact
How do you measure the economic impact of an investment in a child’s life and well-being? We have story after story from kids, young adults, and parents who tell us how BGCMP changed their lives for the good… And, thanks to an economic impact study in 2016 conducted by the Seidman Research Institute, W.P. Carey School of Business at Arizona State University, we have numbers to quantify the economic impact we have in the Phoenix Metro area.
Total estimated value of all socio-economic benefits: $204.9 million
4,155 Club member households continued to work, thanks to the provision of safe, affordable after-school care at BGCMP, benefitting the Arizona economy by $126 million in one year. Other benefits included:
Improved rates of high school graduation and the lifetime earnings of Club members.
A decline in juvenile criminal activity.
Reduced levels of teenage pregnancy and motherhood.
Reduced levels of underage drinking and the use of marijuana and tobacco.
Enhanced opportunity for parents to continue working.
Impact of BGCMP operations and volunteers.
