The club runs on donations, gifts, and fundraising events. Most of the expenses totaling up to about 1 million dollars a year, is covered by funds raised by the club’s fundraising committee. Some of these events are markets or expos where the club members get to show what they have learned or created. The proceeds go to maintenance or even to the child’s home if they are in need.

You will not regret the decision to send your child or teen to BCG NCMA. They will grow, expand their minds, gain confidence, make friends, and develop their potential like you cannot imagine.

Some even come back to volunteer at the club.
