(WBNG Binghamton) The Boys and Girls Club of Western Broome was offered an opportunity of a matching grant from the Dick's Sporting Goods Foundation.

By May 23 at 6 PM, at least $11,752 must be raised to get a matching grant.

The money will support the gymnastics team to buy new equipment, support programs, and fund salaries.

To make a financial donation the Boys and Girls Club of Western Broome, you can visit the facility in Endicott, or donate online.

Since it is a matching fundraiser, it is all or nothing. If the total amount isn't raised by May 23, the Boys and Girls Club won't receive any money.

Credit cards will have a hold on the account until May 23. If the club raises the matching grant, the card will be charged, and if it is shy of the grant, the money will not be charged to the card.
