Bridgestone Retail Operations

Recognizing the significant challenges confronting today’s youth, BGCA and Bridgestone Retail Operations partnered in 2015 to help drive Great Futures.

Bridgestone Helps Support Local Clubs

Since 2015, Bridgestone has partnered with Boys & Girls Clubs of America through the Driving Great Futures partnership. Thanks to donations from Bridgestone Retail Operations’ customers and teammates, funding is provided to help Club kids and families access high-impact, out-of-school programming offered by Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide. In 2021, Bridgestone’s donations reached nearly $4.1 Million and were used to:

  • Purchase 12 new Club vans
  • Maintain the fleets of more than 40 Clubs
  • Provide new equipment and technology resources for 30 Clubs
  • Support summer programming operations for 24 Clubs recovering from unanticipated COVID-19 expenses.

Bridgestone also made special contributions to Boys & Girls Clubs of Middle Tennessee – which included a special, interactive training event for Club kids in partnership with Tight End University and their NFL members – as well as Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Ohio during the Bridgestone SENIOR PLAYERS Championship. In early 2022, Bridgestone reached an exciting milestone: $20 Million donated since the beginning of the program.

Bridgestone recently extended its support of Driving Great Futures through 2024, continuing the program’s legacy of bridging critical divides for Club kids and families nationwide.
