About Kidstock

Who does Kidstock benefit?

Kidstock directly benefits youth at the Club. Currently the Club impacts over 4,000 youth in the Oshkosh community through membership and outreach.  Many of our members fall into an income bracket that qualifies them for Club assistance, meaning the Club provides these children with member scholarships. Even though it only costs a child $25 a year to become a member, it costs the Club over $900 for  each member to experience a full year of quality programming and provide them with nutritional meals and snacks. Kidstock proceeds will assist the Club with this cost and provide kids who need it most a safe place to go after school and in the summer.

How much does Kidstock cost?

One share of Kidstock costs only $25 and provides a scholarship for one child to attend the Club for an entire year. That scholarship will allow Club members to participate in nationally recognized character building programs and make lifelong friends at the Club. Investors also have the opportunity to purchase multiple shares of Kidstock, resulting in a greater impact at the Club and a greater return on investment.

What do I get for my stock purchase?

You will receive a one-of-a-kind stock certificate from the Boys & Girls Club that states you support the Club’s annual membership of youth and the programs at the Club. You will also receive quarterly newsletter updates that show how your stock has appreciated over time by changing the lives of kids. The more shares purchased, the greater impact your investment has on youth at the Club.

Why should I become an investor?

Your stock has a return on investment bigger than any other asset in the national stock market. Annual investors of Kidstock support enrollment fees and programming opportunities at the Club, resulting in a positive impact on the lives of thousands of youth. Stockholders can expect the dividends on their investment to be paid through the holder’s lifetime in the form of a safer, more secure community, where kids can thrive. Kidstock offers academic and character building programs creating greater citizenship and healthier lives, resulting in an inspired generation that will lift the community and improve the world.
