Annual "Campaign for Kids"

"A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of home I lived in, or the kind of car I drove, but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child."

Make a difference in a child's life by giving a gift that lasts a lifetime. Last year about 6000 youth participated in life-changing programs and fun activities at one of our eight locations throughout the coachella valley. Not only do the Clubs provide a safe haven for homework, computer training, sports, social activities, and programs to prevent alcohol and substance abuse, they also give kids a glimpse of future careers through unique and special programs such as our aviation program where they learn to fly, or building homes through Building Horizons. It costs about $500 per child to provide all of these activities for a year - please make a gift to change the life of a child. Your donation will ensure that the youth programs offered by the Boys & Girls Clubs of Coachella Valley continue to change young lives for the better.

Annual Fund

Each year we serve nearly 7,800 youth annually and our members continue to grow. Any size donation will help us provide a safer haven and meaningful youth development programs. Each donation of $500 allows us to serve one youth for an entire year.


Giving Through Your Will

A specific dollar amount, specific asset, or percentage of an estate may be specified in a donor's will or trust to be paid to the Boys & Girls Clubs.


Giving Appreciated Assets

A charitable deduction for both income tax and capital gains tax can be taken based on the fair market value of the stock at the time your gift is made. Gifts of low-basis stock can produce larger charitable deductions. A gift of closely-held stock can allow the donor to maintain control of the corporation while still claiming both capital gains and income tax deductions. A gift of appreciated real property will allow the donor to avoid capital gains tax as well as brokerage fees and closing costs.


Giving Life Insurance

New or current life insurance policies may be transferred or irrevocably assigned to the Boys & Girls Clubs as beneficiary; or a donor can retain ownership of a policy, pay the premium and simply name the Boys & Girls Club as the beneficiary. Both have substantial tax benefits to the donor and the donor's estate.


Gift Annuity and Pooled Income Fund

These vehicles are a legal agreement to transfer money or securities to the Boys & Girls Clubs. The donor receives fixed payments for life based on his or her age, prevailing interest rates and an actuarial table, as well as an income tax deduction for the donated asset value.


Charitable Remainder Trust

A significant donation can be structured in a trust as either a lifetime income for one or more beneficiaries, with the income going to the Boys & Girls Clubs, or with the lifetime income going to the Boys & Girls Club and the remainder going to the beneficiaries. Trusts can be designed to meet individual needs of the donor to provide savings on income, capital gains and estate taxes.
