Our Annual Report
Annual Report 2013-2014
While we were successful in continuing our work, we were less successful financially. We rely on our charitable contributions as they comprise about 20 percent of our annual budget. In 2014, we fell short. We need our investors as much as ever. More children continue to enter our foster care system, and more children are exiting the system and living on the streets. We are here to break cycles and create positive opportunities for the children we serve. But we cannot do this work without you!
Annual Report 2012-2013
Our 2013 fiscal year was full of wonderful stories of children who had faced abuse and neglect, now finding lifelong connections. It was a year we saw new beginnings and new opportunities for those who had endured so much trauma and pain in their young lives. While we are proud of these accomplishments, our 2012-2013 fiscal year was not without challenge. We felt the difficulties of the economic downturn from which we have not fully recovered. Our projected support fell short.
Annual Report 2011-2012
As we give thanks in this new year, we are so grateful to have had a year full of growth and innovation at Boys & Girls Aid. After 127 years serving Oregon’s children, we have had time to reflect on who we are and what is most important and necessary for the children we serve. We have been able to give thanks for the opportunities to impact the well-being of children in need. As an Agency, we believe that families raise children, not systems. We believe that no matter what a child has experienced, each one deserves a family or lifelong permanent connection.
Annual Report 2010-2011
Our 2010-2011 fiscal year was a positive and successful time for Boys & Girls Aid. Throughout the last three years, the slow economy provided us with challenges. But we used the sometimes difficult circumstances as an opportunity to review our programs and processes. During this time, we always held true to our core purpose of impacting the lives of children in need. And with the completion of the fiscal year, we can say, with enthusiasm, that our services for children and young adults are growing and continually improving at Boys & Girls Aid.
Annual Report 2009-2010
Our 2009-2010 fiscal year was filled with reflection on what Boys & Girls has accomplished since 1885 and where we are headed in the future. We celebrated a momentous occasion for Boys & Girls Aid – 125 years of serving children in need. We looked back on the thousands of children and families we have served and the needs we helped to fulfill. We were reminded that these needs were absolutely basic – every child needs and deserves a family to love them and a home to call their own. This was true in 1885 and will be true forever.
