2023 Annual Fund Campaign

Out of all the after-school students at My Kid’s Club, fourth-grader Michelle is the most excited about our new headquarters going up next door. She skips to the Club every afternoon with wide eyes and checks out the progress for the day – steel girders, bulldozers, and people in hard hats are equally fascinating to her. She has a million detailed questions about the project and is now intent on being an engineer one day.

This is what happens at the Club. Our job is to encourage curiosity, foster discovery and cultivate potential in Johnston County’s under-resourced children. We break down barriers that keep the next generation from achieving success academically, emotionally and socially.

Here’s where you can help. MKC’s 2023 Annual Fund campaign kicks off on September 5 and runs through October. Now and in the future, we rely on Annual Fund gifts to provide the environment in which children thrive at both our Selma and Smithfield Clubs.

We invite you to personally join us with a 100% tax-deductible contribution to My Kid’s Club. Your support means the world to us. Thank you in advance for helping our kids see further and dream bigger.


Lynn Daniels Bowles, President
MKC Board of Directors

P.S. Michelle is not the only one eagerly watching the construction of the new MKC headquarters! Stop by and check out the building’s progress at 609 N. Pollock Street in Selma. We plan to open in January 2024. 

We thank each and every one of last year’s 2022 Annual Fund donors. Without you, My Kid’s Club would not be able to provide the academic, emotional and social support our students need for a successful school career. You are our HEROES!
