SINCE 1876

To empower boys and young men by providing effective programs and a supportive community.


Board Members

Board of Trustees

In 1876, The Boys’ Club of New York’s founder, Edward H. Harriman, assembled a group of his friends and business associates to create the original Board of Trustees.  Since then, hundreds of the city’s most prominent philanthropists, businesspeople, and social leaders have served with great distinction.  The current Board of Trustees includes descendants of those original Board members as well as a number of BCNY alumni.  A diverse group of men and women, the Trustees lend their expertise to every area of BCNY’s governance, including financial management, program development, long-range planning, and fundraising.

Women’s Board

The Women’s Board was founded in 1968 to raise support for The Boys’ Club of New York and provide volunteer services to the boys.  Descended from BCNY’s original 1920s-era Ladies Auxiliary and the Women’s Division’s first annual gala in 1935, today’s Women’s Board provides crucial fundraising while working to build awareness of BCNY’s work and its mission.  The Women’s Board hosts dinner dances, fashion shows, luncheons, and other events that are regularly on the calendars of New York-area philanthropists and social leaders.  The Women’s Board is governed by its own set of by-laws distinct from the Board of Trustees.  Several Women’s Board members also serve as Trustees.
