Cleveland-Cliffs Inc

Cleveland-Cliffs’ relationship with the Boys & Girls Clubs organization has a long and rich history. It began in Cleveland when executive leadership from Cleveland-Cliffs partnered with Republic Steel to help found the original Broadway Club of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland in 1954. Since that time, numerous executives and employees from Cliffs have maintained involvement in the organization.

For these reasons, Cliffs reached out to the Boys & Girls Clubs of Toledo when we began constructing the DRI plant in East Toledo. In just a short amount of time, Cliffs is pleased to have established a strong partnership with the organization by supporting fundraising events and making foundation investments in programming. This includes support for the Arts program at the East Broadway Club, which provides cultural development services and instills creativity in participants. Additionally, the Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation is excited to support one of the Clubs’ longstanding traditions by sponsoring the Annual Trustees Christmas Party, which was first held in 1892. 


Partner Testimony

Boys & Girls Clubs of Toledo is extremely grateful for the partnership we hold with the Cleveland Cliffs Foundation. Starting before the completion of the Toledo HBI project, the Foundation took care to reach out to select groups in the community making direct impact on underserved populations. Our Clubs, serve nearly 5,500 central Toledo youth each year, and gifts from the Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation and others like them make our annual operations a possibility. Partners like the Cleveland-Cliffs Foundation trust our programming, and due diligence in efficient operations to achieve our mission: to enable all young people, especially those who need us most, to reach their full potential as productive, caring, responsible citizens. We are so grateful to receive funding, and be considered a partner of the Cleveland Cliffs Foundation.
