Donate Stock

Support the Boys & Girls Clubs and save on capital gains taxes. The gift of an asset, often common stock or mutual fund shares, is a valuable way to make a contribution to a charitable organization and receive tax benefits based on the value of the asset(s). Contact us for more information.

Planned Giving: The Heritage Club
Heritage Club members seek to ensure that the future needs of our nation’s youth are met by including their local Boys & Girls Clubs in their estate plans. This planning might include a will, charitable gift annuity, trust arrangement, real estate gift or life insurance policy. Contact us for more information.

Employer Matching

Many companies have programs through which they will match the charitable contributions made by their employees. Through corporate gift matching, your employer can multiply your gift to the Club, making it go further.

Sponsorship Opportunities

Many corporations, foundations, and especially individuals make dedicated contributions to support programs of specific interest to them, for example, our STEM program, Healthy Habits Cooking Class or Cowboy Ethics. Sponsorship opportunities are available in three focus areas: Academic Success, Healthy Lifestyles and Character and Leadership. More than likely you’ll find something that is particularly relevant on a business, community or cultural level. Please contact us to sponsor a program.

In-Kind Contributions
Your talent is vital to the Clubs. We need organizational support in marketing, public relations, technology, human resource management, finance/resource development, operations and facility maintenance. Contact us to learn more.
