What is the GEM program?

The Broward Children’s Center’s GEM Program is an intimate group of supporters committed to BCC’s mission to provide infants, children, and young adults with special needs a higher quality of life, by Giving Each Month – GEM.

Becoming a GEM allows you to make a meaningful impact in the lives of more than 1,200 children with special needs each year, and enjoy exclusive benefits only offered to GEM members.

What are the requirements to become a GEM?

Your annual membership as a GEM requires a minimum contribution of $300 per year (a commitment of $25 per month, for 12 months.)

The levels of support include:

The amount selected will be charged to a credit/debit card, and will appear on your monthly statement. You may withdraw from the program, or change the amount of your support at any time. Exclusive access and benefits are subject to change.
