Philanthropic Work
Arnold McClellan uses the knowledge he has gained throughout his career to help the efforts of the Boys and Girls Clubs of San Francisco, where he serves as a member of the Finance Committee and Board of Governors. Other organizations he donates to include the San Francisco Edgewood Center for Children and Families and the United Way.

The Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco
The Boys and Girls Club of San Francisco consists of nine clubhouses, where the organization offers community programming to youth between the ages of six and 18. The organization’s mission is to offer these young ones a secure and compassionate environment, in hope of providing them with the tools necessary to reach their full potential. In turn, this will enable them become thoughtful and responsible adults. Their programs range from healthy living, to academics, to athletics, to community involvement and participation in the arts.

Arnold also serves as a member of the organization, holding a position of the Board of Governors and Finance Committee. So far, he has partaken in two sizable transactions, which have made major impacts on the funding for the organization’s projects using New Market Tax Credit funding. In 2010, using these funds, the Boys and Girls Club was able to renovate the San Francisco Mission Clubhouse, which had shut its doors in 1926 due to structural damage. The organization was able to majorly upgrade to a 16,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility, complete with a game room, multimedia center, teaching kitchen, large gym, teen center and community room.

Even better, the center is a sustainable building, using many of the latest green technologies. McClellan continues to make strides in the organization. His current project involves the planning of a new clubhouse, located in the Western Addition of San Francisco. This project will also utilize the New Market Tax Credit funding.

The San Francisco Edgewater Center for Children and Families
Arnold McClellan donates funds and has volunteered hours of his time to the San Francisco campus of the San Francisco Edgewater Center for Children and Families. The organization has two campuses, one in San Francisco and one in San Carlos. The mission of this invaluable organization is to offer programs for children facing and overcoming trauma due to mental illness, family trauma, abuse or neglect; as well as children suffering from behavioral difficulties. The San Francisco campus, where McClellan aids, consists of seven sprawling acres of picturesque, ocean-view property.

The administrative building is even complete with nursing offices and a medical department. In addition, there are also two playgrounds, a school, cottages for the residential program, outdoors athletic facilities, a gymnasium, a library, and a creative and expressive arts recreational space.

Children between the ages of six and 16 who exhibit severe emotional and behavioral disturbances can qualify for the residential program, which operates twenty-four hours a day, providing therapeutic, clinical, medical and family services. These children join the day program for class at the Edgewood Community School, which provides them with unique, special educational programs.

The subject matter and curriculum is based on the standards-based core curriculum used in most public schools. The only difference is that the Edgewood School makes certain accommodations and modifications to help the students along the learning process and help them achieve their academic goals.

The San Francisco Edgewater Center for Children and Family also reaches out to the public schools in the community. The organization works with 22 local public schools, offering programs to help the public schools better understand the needs of students with special necessities so they can make developments towards making a more progressive learning process.

With 1,800 chapters in over 45 countries, the United Way continues to help those in need across the globe. The Tocqueville Society was created to recognize those who make considerable donations annually.
