Lyn Treece Boys Club Foundation
A supporting organization of the
Lyn Treece Boys & Girls Club of Tippecanoe County
The Lyn Treece Boys Club Foundation was established in 1983 as a supporting organization for the Boys Club of Lafayette.
Mr. Treece, the Founder of the Club, recognized the need for a Foundation that could help the Club grow with donations from his initial donation, specific bequests and memorial contributions.
These funds would be invested at the direction of the Trustees and distributed to the Club on a case by case basis.
His initial contribution along with other generous donations have grown to over $1,000,000 at the end of 2021.
The Foundation has helped the Main Club at 1529 N. 10 Street in many ways: provided funds to help the Club acquire adjoining land for further expansion; provided capital for replacement of HVAC and roof systems; helped with acquisition of land and building for the Beck Lane Club.
Funds were needed for expansion of the Beck Lane Club and the Foundation provided those funds as well.
They will play a part in the establishment of third location for the community also. Together with other Foundations and businesses, Lafayette will be assured that its children will always have a Boys and Girls Club.
