Tuesday, November 28th is Giving Tuesday 2023!

Regardless of whether your child(ren) are current participants, recently aged out, or are alumni of decades ago, you have the power to help BARC sustain and build the future. 

Since our first program in 1952, the Ballston Area Recreation Commission (BARC) has provided recreational, enrichment and sports development programming to nearly 50,000 students.  For many participants, BARC was their first introduction to organized fun!

It’s where our youngest of athletes have developed motor skills, learned teamwork and launched their training to become members of Ballston Spa sports teams, and for some, even collegiate teams. 

Our stage has uplifted hundreds of budding actors and actresses in building confidence, learning important presentation and collaboration skills and has offered a safe place to develop a strong sense of self. 

Our classrooms have been filled with students exploring new concepts in art, science, cooking, language and life-long leisure options;

Our fields and facilities have been where families came together as strangers and persevered through sun, rain, wind and the occasional snow flurry to become friends, a community, and at times, the family we choose.

Please consider donating to BARC as the charity of your choice this Giving Tuesday or for your End of Year giving.

BARC is very proud of our contributions in helping to raise our community youth.  We hope you’ll take a moment to visit https://ballstonarearec.org/fundraising/  and invest in the many more decades of innovative programs and services to come!  We are so very grateful for your kind and generous support.

Your donations stay local, benefits local and is tax deductible. Give today!
