Welcome to the Great Futures Fund.

Established as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization three years ago, the Great Futures Fund is a Sussex County-based organization dedicated to helping local kids in need.

Our signature event, the Great Futures Gala, has taken place for the past two years led by an amazing group of dedicated and loyal volunteers including sisters Leanne Silicato Prosser and Nicole Silicato Miller who founded the Great Futures Fund.


The Boys & Girls Club of Oak Orchard/Riverdale in Millsboro currently provides services for over 100 children on a daily basis, running before and after school programs, a preschool and a summer camp.


Their current waiting list is four pages long.


"The current programs are running on all cylinders, but we still have a four page waiting list of youth in grades K-8 who would like to attend our Club and we simply don't have the space," says Erica Kennedy, Director of the Oak Orchard/Riverdale Club.


The Great Futures Fund seeks to expand the current space at this Club in order to serve more local children, and we need the support of our community in order to do it.


Thanks to the generosity of our amazing community, the 2nd Annual Great Futures Gala proceeds

topped $150,000, and every dollar will go towards the Oak Orchard Club expansion (Phase 1). 


We are beyond thrilled to share this wonderful news, and even more excited to share the news that


the 3rd Annual Great Futures Gala will take place on

Friday, June 11th, 2021! 


Please like our page on Facebook (@GreatFuturesFund) for the latest news. 


Total Phase 1 expansion project costs are estimated at approximately $1,000,000. 

Architects and engineers from the firm Davis, Bowen & Friedel, Inc. have

designed the expansion with input from Boys & Girls Club staff and the plans

are currently in the approval process. The planned expansion will provide

an additional 4,530 square feet to the existing space, nearly doubling the size

of the current building. This expansion is crucial as the waiting list

of families and children who need these services continues to grow.

Thank you again for your interest and support of the Oak Orchard Boys & Girls

Club expansion plans initiative!
