The Boys & Girls Club mission of helping children, especially those who need us most, is vital to our community. We charge parents only a small fraction of what it costs to offer our rich program of child development services and activities.
We depend on generous donors to keep our program available for over 500 children per year.
Help support our mission by giving today. Large or small, your gift helps!
There are many ways you can make a donation
to our operations:
Make a cash donation.
We accept payments by check, direct deposit, or credit card (VISA, MasterCard, and Discover).
Make a gift of securities.
Gifts of highly appreciated assets, such as stock with a very low basis, make excellent charitable gifts. By donating stock, you avoid costly gains and significantly help Walker County teens at the same time. We will be happy to assist you in transferring assets to complete your gift.
Special Tax-free IRA gifts.
For those 70 1/2 or older, it is now possible to make tax-favored charitable gifts from traditional and Roth IRA accounts. A total of up to $100,000 per year can be transferred directly from traditional or Roth IRAs to one or more qualified charities such as the Boys & Girls Club free from federal income tax. Amounts given in this way count toward required IRA minimum withdrawal amounts for the year of the gift. To make such gifts, it is important not to withdraw funds prior to a gift, but have the gift amount distributed directly from an IRA to the organization. Check with your tax advisor for more information.
Make an in-kind gift. Boys & Girls Club of Walker County will consider all kinds of “other than cash” gifts such as real estate and personal property. We are happy to visit with you about potential in-kind gifts.
Make a planned gift. For some donors, a planned gift—or other type of deferred giving arrangement—may better suit your financial and planning needs. These can be structured through a variety of vehicles, including a bequest in a will, a trust arrangement, and other income-producing vehicles such as life insurance and annuities. In considering a planned gift, it is best to consult your tax, legal, and financial advisor(s). We will be happy to work with you and your advisor(s) to structure a gift that best suits your tax and real estate planning needs.
