~PAINTING IT FORWARD~
YIPEE SUMMER 2017
Block Club Federation (BCF) began as a group of people interested in organizing block clubs in the Humboldt Park community to raise awareness and unity. Today, we are an umbrella to several block clubs in Humboldt Park and youth programs, such as YIPEE (Youth Innovative Program: Environmental Education).
BCF is a non profit 501 c (3) organization that runs all of its programming with minimal city funding plus fundraisers. Our funding is based on providing services to 20 children per each of our two sites, but how could we turn away so many participants... instead, we serve 40 children at each site, each summer. Did I mention we celebrated 10 years of service last year?!! Anyway, by the time we're done with the summer session, funds are nearly nonexistent for our Winter session. So we're always fundraising and accepting donations ;)
Thank you, in advance, for your generosity and support!

Year after year, the Block Club Federation hosts numerous events that are always successful, due in large part, to our dedicated sponsors and/or partners. Events such as, our Earth Day Clean Up Celebration where we clean and beautify four smaller parks plus Humboldt Park, YIPEE Car Wash, YIPEE Family Picnic, Annual Holiday Celebration, Helping the Less Fortunate, and many others.
We are extremely proud and grateful to partner with such dedicated organizations and look forward to continuing to build a valuable and mutually beneficial relationship with you all.
