For more than 100 years, Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) has enabled young people most in need to achieve great futures as productive, caring, responsible citizens. In 2010, BGCA teamed up with Maytag to support the organization’s mission and unwavering commitment to serving youth and communities. The partnership seeks to recognize and promote “dependability” – a quality that is at the core of what the Clubs do every day and is central to the Maytag.
From this partnership, the Maytag Dependable Leader Awards were created. These awards program support the Clubs of those leaders who have shown they are the most “dependable” in delivering programming that creates measurable improvements in helping young people succeed for life. To date, Maytag has donated more than $4 million in awards.
